Stranger Things star Joe Keery leads psych-rock outfit Post Animal on new single, “Ralphie”: Stream

on February 20, 2018, 11:23am

Stranger Things was one of our favorite TV shows of 2017, and the show’s reformed hunk Steve Harrington one of its best characters. And though his turn as Steve has made actor Joe Keery one of the show’s biggest rising stars, the native Chicagoan is still making time for his first love: Music. Before he linked up Stranger Things, Keery played guitar in burgeoning psych-rock outfit Post Animal, and now the band has just announced their official debut album, When I Think Of You In A Castle.

Keery won’t be joining the band as a full-time touring member, what with a third season of Stranger Things on the way and what’s no doubt a slew of studio meet-and-greets, but he does rear his floppy-haired head on the album’s lead single, “Ralphie”. The peppy, guitar-forward pop-rock song finds Keery trading vocals with bassist Dalton Allison, and one wonders if it’ll serve to influence fellow Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard as he records his band’s debut EP alongside Twin Peaks’ Cadien Lake James.

The band will also be embarking on a massive spring tour of North America that kicks off in early March and wraps up in late June. When I Think Of You In A Castle is due out on April 20th via Polyvinyl. Pre-order it here, and check out the album’s artwork and tracklist, as well as their full list of tour dates, below.
