CASISDEAD releases debut album ‘Famous Last Words’ via XL Recordings

CASISDEAD finally releases his hotly-anticipated debut album Famous Last Words via XL Recordings.

Featuring recent singles “Venom”, “Matte Grey Wrap”, “Traction Control” and “Boys Will Be Boys”, 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 and idiosyncratically 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.

Famous Last Words is available on a host of formats including standard black LP, limited edition clear LP, stamped white label, CD, and cassette alongside exclusive merchandise available at

CASISDEAD will play his biggest headline show to date next week when he takes over London’s Koko. The show, along with all other CASISDEAD live dates, is sold out. A newly-announced show at Leeds Wardrobe on 21st November also goes on sale at 10am today with tickets available here.
