In related news, Casal’s band, Circles Around The Sun, completed recording a new studio album the week prior to his passing. The album’s producer, Jim Scott, will see the recording through to its completion with plans being made for its release in early 2020.

CATS had also collaborated with drummer Joe Russo on an EP entitled Circles Around The Sun Meets Joe Russo that was already set to be released October 18th on limited edition vinyl and digital formats. CATS had previously announced tour dates in October and December, while plans were in the works for the band’s busiest year yet in 2020.

Casal left behind specific wishes for Circles Around The Sun to continue in his absence. The surviving members, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Dan Horne, and drummer Mark Levy, have decided to honor that request and move forward together. A new guitar player will be announced shortly and all 2019 tour dates will go on as scheduled.
