CIRCLES Release Volume 1 Of Two Part EP

Share This:

Australia’s progressive metal giants, Circles, shape a new era with the release of the first part of their long-awaited two-part EP – The Stories We Are Afraid Of | Vol. 1., out now via Wild Thing Records.

Produced during the extensive lockdowns in Melbourne, Circles’ new EP emphasises the importance of self-reflection and self-realisation in the face of despair and hopelessness and illustrates the first steps in finding the strength to make positive, empowering change in oneself.

Circles’ Ben Rechter discusses the themes of The Stories We Are Afraid Of | Vol. 1: “The overarching theme of Vol.1 is one of a loss of identity and purpose, and trying to recapture a sense of wonder and passion for life that was once a core part of you. Musically, we went into these writing sessions with a focus on being more direct than on previous albums, steering away from crowding songs with heaps of different riffs for the sake of having more riffs that we personally like in there.”
