Hey -- remember Post Animal? Back in the summer of ‘16 we introduced you to the “eclectic Chicago six-piece that'll take you on a trip to the upside down and back again with their psych rock.” They did just that, while kindly excusing the Stranger Things puns we wove into the feature on account of actor Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) playing guitar in the band. Since then, they’ve toured every inch of the US, supporting the likes of Wavves and Twin Peaks, upping their fan base and signing to Polyvinyl Records.

Today Post Animal made a bunch of announcements: there’s a great new single called Ralphie that features Joe Keery on lead vocals alongside bassist Dalton Allison, said new single is taken from their debut album entitled When I Think of You in a Castle out 20 April, and moving forward (due to acting commitments) Joe Keery will not be a touring member of the band. So a mixed bag of generally exciting news.

“In early 2015, Joe joined our band and quickly became one of our best friends,” said Post Animal earlier today. “He’s played a vital role in Post animal and the creation of every musical release we’ve had or planned thus far, including his vocals and guitar work on When I Think of You in a Castle. It comes as no surprise that our incredibly talented Joe has found success in other artistic endeavors, and for that reason he is no longer an active touring member of Post Animal. We plan to create more magic with him in the future as our fondness for musical collaboration remains strong.”
