A spokesman for the band does however state that rumours the band are to be dropped are "bollocks"...

CAST have cancelled more live commitments, but a spokesperson for the group has vehemently denied the band have been dropped from their label POLYDOR.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Cast cancelled their autumn tour of the UK in support of current album ‘Beetroot’, due to “internal band circumstances”.

Today (August 21), the group have pulled out of a scheduled appearance at the ‘Party At The Pier’ event in Liverpool on August 27, according to a posting on their official website

Following the cancellations, speculation has been mounting about the future of the band, with one UK music website claiming they have been dropped by their label, Polydor. The band’s album ‘Beetroot’, entered the chart at Number 78 following its release on July 30, while the single that preceded the album, ‘Desert Drought’, also charted outside the Top 40 at Number 45.

However, a spokesperson for the band contacted NME.COM this morning to deny any rift between the band and their label, shrugging off the reports as “bollocks”. He said that as things stand, the group remain with Polydor.

When asked about the band’s future however, the spokesperson commented that Cast are “currently considering their future”, but was unable to comment further.
