RFC to release The Casket Lottery's first three LPs, deluxe RSD box set, and US tour dates announced!
Twenty years into its existence, The Casket Lottery is still evolving at its own pace. Over the course of four full length records, four EPs and countless other 7" singles, the Kansas City band has flirted with fidgety math rock, atmospheric explorations and anthemic singalongs, all while showcasing a masterful ability to balance world-weary heavy hearts with bombastic choruses that explode into stadium-sized fireworks displays. While the band has taken a few hiatuses over the past decade (with members contributing to other projects like Coalesce, Appleseed Cast, Able Baker Fox, Jackie Carol and singer Nathan Ellis' solo work), every return to action finds The Casket Lottery recharged and refocused, eagerly annexing new musical territories while still retaining that ragged, restless fire that sparked the band two decades prior.
This spring the band will be playing shows to help celebrate the rerelease of their first three LPs Choose Bronze (1999), Moving Mountains (2000), and Survival Is For Cowards (2002) on Boston label Run For Cover Records. The now-classic, long out-of-print albums are being repressed in limited quantities and will be available individually and in a box set available on Record Store Day 2018. Limited pre-sale is now available from Run For Cover. Tickets for the upcoming shows will be on-sale this Friday, January 12th at 10am local time (all tour dates below).
"We are excited to finally have these records back on vinyl and even more excited to get out and play some cities that we haven't been to in years," says singer Nathan Ellis of the announcement. "We are all looking forward to connecting with old friends and singing some old songs.”
