case/lang/veirs at Oregon Zoo, July 2016
|Origin||Portland, Oregon U.S.|
|Genres||Indie rock, power pop, post-punk revival|
case/lang/veirs is a Canadian-American supergroup consisting of Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs, formed in Portland, Oregon in 2013. The group launched with a June 2016 eponymous album, followed by a summer 2016 tour of almost 20 cities.
The trio of case/lang/veirs was formed in 2013, three years before the album release, when Lang, in a one-line e-mail, invited Case and Veirs to join her, and they responded affirmatively within 30 minutes.
Lang, who previously collaborated with Dwight Yoakam, Madeleine Peyroux and Ann Wilson, has said that she was considering retirement before forming the band, and she always wanted to "be part of a band, a real collaborative effort".
Two of the band members, lang and Veirs, live in Portland; Case joined them from her home in Vermont.
