The Cast Of Cheers – ‘Animal’ + Album News

The Cast Of Cheers have been busy prepping the release of their second album Family, steadily stoking the fires of interest and building the hype over the last few months.

‘Family’ caused a sensation when it was released just before the end of 2011 and we now have ‘Animal’. It is sharp but a shade toned down from the propulsive energy of ‘Family’. It seems like a long time ago now since they released their debut but on the evidence so far, they’ve only got better.

Family will be released June 15th on School Boy Error/ Co-operative Music. In the meantime, we have ‘Animals’, the album’s second single to listen to.

The Cast Of Cheers – ‘Family’

The Cast Of Cheers have returned with their first new music since releasing free album Chariot, early last year, clocking up some 150,000 downloads in the process.

Their return was announced pretty spectacularly with Zane Lowe playing ‘Family’ twice, back to back, on BBC Radio1 last week. ‘Family’ is a rhythmic beast packed full of driving beats, catchy riffs and a ton of energy; shades of The Futureheads or Maximo Park to this one too. Their forthcoming second album is due sometime early next year and was produced by Luke Smith

Surely it’s fair to say that we’ll be hearing plenty of The Cast Of Cheers in the coming weeks and months, you can listen to ‘Family’ below now.
