Today Wales' emotional hardcore upstarts, Casey, have released their powerful sophomore full length, Where I Go When I Am Sleeping, available from Rise Records (North America) and Hassle Records (UK, EU). To celebrate the band has shared an in-depth studio documentary of the making of Where I Go When I Am Sleeping. The footage captures the band as they crafted the album with producer Brad Wood (Touché Amoré, Sunny Day Real Estate, Placebo), providing fans with an intimate look into the process behind the record.
Where I Go When I Am Sleeping is a deeply personal journey through Weaver's struggles with physical and mental health—some of which he's experienced since birth. "I was diagnosed with brittle bones when I was born" he explains, "and when I was fifteen I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, then at 20 I was diagnosed with manic depression. I've also had a heart attack and a stroke, and was in this crazy car accident that crushed half my face." These incredibly harrowing life events have left Weaver with a particularly unique worldview that he explores on the intense new album, "looking back now, I realize I could have died four or five times. I'm lucky to be here."
