Circles are going from strength to strength – the four-piece prog powerhouse band has wall-to-wall tours and shows from now until the end of 2018 – and show no sign of slowing down (they have just been announced on Euroblast Festival 2018!). The Melbourne-based, world-class outfit are releasing their highly anticipated new album The Last Oneworldwide on August 31st 2018 through Wild Thing Records (AUS) and Season of Mist (EU/USA). Today they bringing their brand new single & video “Tether” to the world.
Vocalist Ben Rechter said that “Tether is the first song that I brought into Circles, not knowing if it was what they’d be after, because it’s not quite the vibe that Circles has been known for. But they all embraced it, and helped me get it to where it needed to be.The song is essentially about confronting the parts of your own psyche that are holding you back. There’s always people that can help you not only to survive, but to succeed in ways you wouldn’t have thought possible, but you need to be willing to take that terrifying but necessary step. It’s as much a song written to myself as a reminder as from me to anyone else feeling trapped. We started playing it live on our last tour, it feels really good in the set and is a nice change of pace in amongst the mayhem!”
Circles are set to circumnavigate and conquer the world with their brand new record The Last One, their best yet in-hand. In sync with their monumental sophomore album release, Circles will be joining UK progressive metal juggernaut TesseracT on their Australian Tour in September 2018 as special guests. Soon after, Circles will jet off on their momentous return to Europe, touring across the continent with fellow Australian progressive rock trailblazers Caligula’s Horse between October-November 2018, while also appearing at prominent festivals ProgPower Europe and Euroblast.
