Casey have returned with a new song, Great Grief.

The heartfelt post-hardcore track is out now through Hassle Records, and marks the Welsh band's first new music in four years, following up their 2018 LP 'Where I Go When I Am Sleeping'. Vocalist Tom Weaver said:

"Great Grief is really special to the five of us. It was the first piece of music we wrote collectively after deciding that we wanted to do this again, and it felt like an organic progression when it came together.

"Musically we wanted to maintain an anchor in the familiar, but challenge ourselves to produce a more mature and expansive sound. We put a lot of thought into the sound design, adding layers and harmonies – all things we’d not really put much effort into previously.

"Lyrically, the song talks about the realisation I came to after reflecting on our time as a band following our breakup. When we announced we were drawing Casey to a close, I'd tunneled on the immediate personal impact of my writing, and how it felt like I was proliferating my pain by repeating it each night. But I'm in a much better place now, and I've grown a lot over the last few years. So now, if I look beyond myself at how the music Casey made has been interpreted and applied in our fans, my own discomfort feels like a small price to pay for the collective joy and catharsis we felt from our community."

The quintet have also confirmed a handful of reunion shows in the UK and Germany for January. Tickets are on sale now.
