2011 has been an absolutely fantastic year for Melbourne based Circles and to round it off in style the band has released one final announcement. During the first few months of 2012 the band will be taking their unique brand of progressive Metal to the road, in a string of dates across their native homeland of Australia, the first of many tours for the band next year.
Since their critically acclaimed debut EP was released in May this year via UK based label Basick Records, Circles have been hard at work building their profile worldwide.

Their videos for 'Clouds Are Gathering' and 'Eye Embedded' were premiered internationally by Metal Injection in the USA and Metal Hammer Magazine and Scuzz TV in Europe with both videos subsequently reaching the No.1 spot on Scuzz TV, their EP and single reached No.1 and No.5 on the Australian Metal iTunes chart simultaneously, sweeping the review boards worldwide with praise and picking up airplay worldwide including national airplay on BBC Radio 1 and TripleJ and scored features in Metal Hammer Magazine, Kerrang!, Blunt, TripleJ Mag and Terrorizer, all whilst continuing to play countless gigs and begin work on their follow up record!
Circles drummer Dave Hunter commented: "This year has been so fantastic for us, we've spent 2011 putting a lot of the groundwork in and now we can't wait to be out on the road again. It's so much fun to see those fresh faces in the front row singing their guts out and this time we've got some surprises up our sleeve with new tracks that we'll be road testing exclusively to our Australian fans, so you don't want to miss this. We also get to share the stage with our good friends Humality and The Schoenberg Automaton who both absolutely blow us away."
