News : Melbourne’s Circles release new single “Tether”, out now!

By on July 10, 2018

Progressive metallers Circles are continually reaching new highs – the four-piece from Melbourne have a hectic tour schedule stretching out to the end of 2018, including a performance at this year’s Euroblast Festival and ProgPower Europe. The band are eager to release their highly anticipated new album The Last One, out August 31st via Wild Thing Records in Australia and Season of Mist in Europe and America. Today, Circles have released their brand new single and music video “Tether” and can be watched via the link below.

Circles’ new album The Last One is available to pre-order now from iTunes, JB Hi-Fi and all leading music retailers – all available HERE. The single “Tether” is also available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music and all leading streaming outlets from today!

Vocalist, Ben Rechter comments:

“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!”

Before jetting off to Europe later this year, Circles will be performing select shows in Australia supporting Tesseract. See below for full tour dates.
