Circles announce new album "The Last One" for release August 31 + drop new single Breaker!

June 22, 2018





Album to be released by Wild Thing Records (AUS) and Season Of Mist (EU/USA)


Australian alternative progressive rock powerhouse Circles are the next step in the evolution of heavy music. The intricacy, the emotional heartstring pull of the lyrics, the precision, and the sheer force of their output places them in a class of their own. The Melbourne-based, world-class outfit will unleash their highly anticipated new album The Last One worldwide on August 31st 2018 through Wild Thing Records (AUS), and Season of Mist (EU/USA) and can be pre-ordered on CD Digipak, Vinyl and digital download here right now!

Today they are bringing their brand new single "Breaker" to the world. The track is the second taste of the record, after they released "Blueprints of a Great Escape" earlier in 2018 with the announcement of the label signings!





Guitarist Ted Furuhashi said that "The Last One is definitely an album that we’re all proud of. For me personally, it’s the record I’ve always wanted to write. It came from a place of honesty and pure expression. After our first ever European tour with The Dillinger Escape Plan in 2013, I made a conscious decision to make music for myself and not write for expectation. Writing for "The Last One" started as soon as we got back from that tour and as you’d expect, we had songs that didn’t really sound like Circles at all, but we definitely didn’t want our back catalogue to define us or at least define what the next album will be, so we continued writing completely without boundaries. We’ve never been more solid as a group, both musically and personally, so to have an amazing team behind us in Season of Mist and Wild Thing Records, we’re finally feeling like we deserve to show the world who we really are and what we can offer."

The Last One, an album of tremendous power and lyrical inventiveness, delivers on the promise made on their Basick Records debut album Infinitas (2013). With guitarist Ben Rechter assuming the role of lead vocalist and fellow band members Ted Furuhashi (guitar/backing vocals), David Hunter (drums), and Drew Patton (bass guitar/screamed vocals) providing a maelstrom of musical brutality, Circles have written and recorded a simply phenomenal album. The band’s uniquely designed off-kilter stadium-like riffs and dynamic grooves, exemplified in the track Dream Sequence, beautifully contrast with breathtaking soaring vocals and catchy hooks apparent in highlight song Tether, with new front-man Ben Rechter’s lush melodic singing styling instantly becoming a signature of Circles’ ever expanding sound.

Formed in 2010 by Ted Furuhashi, David Hunter and Drew Patton, Circles have constantly been at the forefront of progressive heavy music, with their musical foundations becoming a strong component of the worldwide djent movement. Their previous releases, 2011’s EP The Compass (Basick Records) and 2013’s Infinitas, garnered unanimously positive reaction from fans and critics across the globe.

Circles' European jaunts have included Euroblast Festival (2013), as well as hitting the road with heavy music luminaries such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Monuments, and After The Burial. In Australia, they’ve toured nationally as direct support to eminent rock and metal acts such as Periphery, Fear Factory, Twelve Foot Ninja, and Ne Obliviscaris, while also performing at the nation’s premier progressive music festival PROGFEST on two occasions (2012 & 2016). Their tour-de-force live show led the group to be signed by Bear Parts Music (management), Wild Thing Presents (bookings – Australia), Artery Global (bookings – Europe), and 33 & West (bookings – North America).

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 festival ProgPower Europe.

Circles' new album The Last One is available to pre-order now from iTunes, JB Hi-Fi and all good retailers - all available HERE. Single Breaker is also available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music and all good streaming outlets today!
