A completely unique approach to modern heavy music is what you get from Melbourne, Australia based outfit CIRCLES. You simply won’t hear their distinctive
fusion of powerhouse progressive rhythms, soaring lead vocals and dynamic and ultra-catchy songs anywhere else.
The band roared into national and international attention with the release of their acclaimed debut EP The Compass in May of 2011. To many people,
this band had simply exploded out of nowhere and the maturity and development inherent in the songs and production values of this new band turned
heads aplenty. Heavy touring expanded their notoriety across their native land throughout 2012. That momentum shifted up yet another gear as they
unleashed their almighty debut album Infinitas in late 2013. Released through prestigious UK label Basick Records, the album garnered almost unanimously
positive reaction from fans and critics across the globe, with its sound, songs and creativity lifting them into new stratospheres. The band’s
attention now turned to international markets, where a rapidly growing fan base awaited.
And those fans truly embraced CIRCLES with open arms, hearts and minds. The band slayed audiences at Euroblast 2013 alongside the likes of Meshuggah,
Monuments, Textures and fellow Aussie warriors Twelve Foot Ninja. A European tour with the mighty Dillinger Escape Plan ensued, the band gaining
avid new followers with every show. So much so that the band were able to head out across the UK and Europe again following the Dillinger tour
on a headlining jaunt of their own, before returning to Australia for triumphant dates across the nation to round out the year. Less than a year
later they were back on the road across Europe once again, on a 23 date tour with Monuments and After the Burial.
With legendary status in their home country now assured and an ever-growing international audience rabidly awaiting their next move, it was now time
to think about the sophomore CIRCLES opus.
2015 saw the band bunkered down, feverishly incubating the follow-up to the illustrious Infinitas. New sounds, styles and production techniques are being experimented with, and 2016 promises something very fresh, new and innovative for this most forward thinking of bands.
