Post Animal announce new LP, share “Ralphie” ft Joe Keery of ‘Stranger Things,’ touring

post-animal

You may remember Post Animal as the Chicago psych band that featured Joe Keery, aka Steve from Strangers Things. While not the only band to feature members of this very popular Netflix show, they are probably the one mostly likely to be talked about if there wasn’t that connection. They signed to Polyvinyl who are releasing the band’s new album, When I Think of You in a Castle, on April 20. The first single is “Ralphie,” a glammy guitar pop number that has Keery trading leading vocal lines with bassist Dalton Allison. You can listen below.

While Joe is on the album, his acting career has taking off to the extent he can’t tour with the band. Here’s Post Animal’s statement:

In early 2015, Joe joined our band and quickly became one of our best friends. 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.

On that note, we hope you enjoy “Ralphie,” and we are excited to share more music with you in the coming months.

With love and dedication,
Post Animal
