'Sending Up Flares'
, the fourth record from Casey Neill & The Norway Rats, is the sound of a band rallying together, turning the genre-bending range of its influences into the group's most cohesive, cathartic album yet. Created amidst chaos and uncertainty, these songs offer a lifeline of stories about resolve, resilience, and wonder.

"Perhaps what I dig most about Sending Up Flares is its seductively contemplative nature as a whole... Slip on the headphones, drive to the starlit Mojave in your mind, and look upon the warm desert sand...It’s hard to pin down the exact genre of the record. ‘Neo-Realist,’ ‘Indie Folk,’ Post-Colonial-Coalminer Stargaze. I don’t care what you call it, I just like it! " 
- Americana Highways
 
Since the release of Sending Up Flares, Neill spent the Fall of 2023 touring with the band and solo across the US and UK, including a run of shows opening for The Indigo Girls. A prolific songwriter and road warrior since the late 1990s, Casey Neill has performed at venues such as Town Hall in New York, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, and the Newport Folk Festival. Released by Portland label Fluff & Gravy, the songs on 'Sending Up Flares' were co-written with producer and guitarist Chet Lyster (eels) and feature long time members of The Norway Rats - Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) on keyboards and accordion, Jesse Emerson on bass, as well as a guest vocal from Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker on the jittery "Jumping Out Of My Skin". Neill is often a side guitarist in The Minus 5 and bandleader Scott McCaughey turns up on a song they co-wrote to add free time drums and while R.E.M.’s Peter Buck plays ghostly e-bow lines.

After years of performing in acoustic music circles, Neill formed the Norway Rats in 2010. Their catalog includes the dreamy Americana songs of 'Goodbye to the Rank and File' (2010), the art rock of 'All You Pretty Vandals '(2013) and the electronic-leaning 'Subterrene' (2018). On 'Sending Up Flares' the Portland-based supergroup finds room for everything, turning a wealth of musical influences into something expansive and singular.
