BRITPOP giants Cast are back on the road with the release of a new album and Ely Standard readers can win tickets to see the legendary band when they stop off in Cambridge next month.

It is 15 years since the release of their million-selling debut album All Change, but Cast have reunited with legendary producer John Leckie for a new album and a UK tour that brings them to The Junction on April 3.

Originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded guitar bands of the time, The La’s and Shack, Cast released four albums (three of them top 10), with 10 top 10 singles with the likes of Finetime, Alright and Sandstorm.
