Upcoming release: "The Last One"

Release date: Fri, Aug 31 2018, US Fri, Aug 31 2018

Australian prog metal band CIRCLES are now streaming another brand new track taken from their upcoming album, 'The Last One'. The new record will be released on August 31st, 2018. Listen to the song at the link below.

The track "Dream Sequence" is now streaming in the form of a music video via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel here!

Guitarist/vocalist Ben Rechter on the new single: "Musically, the song is the most direct on the album, adhering to a more 'traditional' song structure with a verse and 'chorus' of sorts that anchor the song as it develops and briefly veers off in different musical directions. The music and lyrics are also closely intertwined, with complimentary changes in tone, tempo and dissonance as the lyrical narrative progresses. I always loved songs that are a perfect reflection of the lyrical landscapes within them, where the music is an integral part of the 'story' of a song, and I think this is one of our best examples of it to date."

CIRCLES have previously revealed the artwork for 'The Last One', which can be viewed together with the album details below.

From the same fertile soil that has sprung some of the most ground-breaking acts in metal, rises the Australian progressive powerhouse CIRCLES. Combining djent influences with extreme metal, stadium-like riffs and soaring vocals, the band has always strived to expand their sound, placing them in a class of their own.

Formed in 2010 by Ted Furuhashi, David Hunter and Drew Patton, CIRCLES’ mission is to constantly break new ground and introduce fresh elements to heavy music and djent. As a result, the first two releases of the band, the EP ‘The Compass’ (2011) and the debut album ‘Infinitas’ (2013) are both undeniably catchy and heavy.

CIRCLES’ live performances have taken them to the stages of prestigious festivals and on tours alongside some of the world's finest. Among them are the Euroblast Festival in Germany (2013) and Australia’s progressive music festival Progfest on two occasions (2012 and 2016). The four piece has toured Europe and Australia with renowned rock and metal acts such as THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, PERIPHERY, FEAR FACTORY, TWELVE FOOT NINJA and NE OBLIVISCARIS.

On the new record, named ‘The Last One’, the Australians once again deliver on the promise to seek the edges of what is common in their genre and leap over it. As soothing as some of the melodies and vocals on the new record may sound, the more unpredictable are the crushing riffs and grooves that follow. CIRCLES are the next step in the evolution in heavy music. Are you ready to take it?
