Debut Album On It's Way

Debut Album On It's Way

Who: The Casanovas, The Healing Art
Where: University - Bar on the Hill
When: Thursday February 26, 2004

THE departure of drummer PATRICK BOYCE won't stand in the way of THE CASANOVAS as the band prepares to release its hotly-anticipated debut album in April.

Boyce announced earlier this year that he and the band were parting ways.

He founded the band with brother and frontman TOMMY BOYCE in Melbourne in 1999.

Boyce, who left the band to ``put his energy into other projects in 2004'', has been replaced by JORDAN STANLEY , formerly of Queensland band THE ONYAS. Stanley has already played many live shows with the band, including a stint on the BIG DAY OUT bill and a support slot with UK glam rockers THE DARKNESS in January.

The Casanovas released the Keep It Hot EP in 2002 and will release the debut self-titled album on April 19.

It will include Shake It and Let It Ride and the latest release No Time For Love , a step away from the band's usual serve of straight-up rock'n'roll.

``It's more laid back and it's the closest thing we've done to a ballad ever,'' Tommy Boyce said.

``It's like a cross between The Stones and Steve Miller.'' Boyce, who rates AC/DC among some of his biggest influences, said he took inspiration for the song's title from THE DATSUNS , whom The Casanovas supported on a 45-date overseas tour in 2003.

``It's called No Time For Love and I totally ripped the title off a Fun Things song The Datsuns cover,'' he said.

The Casanovas will play the BAR ON THE HILL tomorrow night with THE HEALING ART. Tickets will be available on the door or on campus from CONTACT.
