Following recent single “Matte Grey Wrap”, CASISDEAD returns with “Venom”, the latest single taken from his highly anticipated debut album Famous Last Words.
Upping the tempo, “Venom” packs a film’s worth of plot into under four minutes and is guaranteed to join a long line of CASISDEAD cult classics. It’s a track unlike anything CASISDEAD has done before and comes accompanied by a video directed by CAS himself.
CASISDEAD’s debut album Famous Last Words is the London-based rapper, producer and director’s most ambitious statement yet and will be released on 27th October via XL Recordings. The 23 track album is a fully realised expansion of the dystopian futurism that has captivated audiences since CASISDEAD first announced himself in 2013.
The album features a carefully curated roll call of collaborators including Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant, Connie Constance, Kamio and Desire. The vocalists are immersed in CASISDEAD’s hallmark 80’s-inspired synthpop soundscapes, aided and abetted by a production cast that includes Stranger Things composer Kyle Dixon and producer, composer and Italians Do It Better label founder Johnny Jewel. Meanwhile, actors Ed Skrein and Emma Rigby’s narrative weaves through the record, amplifying the widescreen, cinematic experience.
The album will be available on standard black LP, limited edition clear LP, stamped white label, CD, and cassette alongside exclusive merchandise available at casisdead.com.
