CASISDEAD shares self-directed visual for new single 'Venom'

The elusive rapper's forthcoming album drops later this month...

CASISDEAD has shared a self-directed video for his new single, 'Venom'. 

'Venom' is the latest single to be released from the UK rapper's forthcoming debut studio album ‘Famous Last Words’.

Set for release via XL Recordings on 27th October, ‘Famous Last Words’ unites a string of collaborators including Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant, singer Connie Constance, and grime artist Kamio, along with Stranger Things composer Kyle Dixon, and Italians Do It Better label founder Johnny Jewel at the production desk.

The forthcoming 27-track record has been dubbed as the "fully realised expansion of the dystopian futurism" that the prolific figure has been exploring since launching the CASISDEAD alias back in 2013.

Dealing with feelings of loss, regret, paranoia, and a persona that constantly self-reflects amongst the madness in London, 'Famous Last Words' is expected to blur the boundaries between sci-fi film and rap album like never before.

Fans will find the rapper at the centre of a shady network of gangsters, girls, and drug dealers. Narrated by CASISDEAD himself, the record invites listeners to step through a portal into a vivid new world.

The new track, 'Venom', follows the previously released single ‘Matte Grey Wrap’, featuring Megan Louise and Johnny Jewel as Desire and setting up the '80s synth-pop palette explored on the rest of the album.
