Winter is already well and truly here, and with it comes some huge shows for Melbourne heavy progsters Circles for their monster 'Winter' tour kicking off in July. And not only are the thunderous quartet bringing along fellow prog rockers Ebonivory for the ride - this week the Circles gents also announced sixteen (yes, SIXTEEN) local bands across the country to join them and Ebonivory for this insanely epic tour.
Circles will be bringing something special to their sets with new musical experiences and throwback material guaranteed to please the masses. And the Circles guys are just as pumped as the fans to get these shows on the road, as drummer-in-chief Dave Hunter affirms "...It’s exciting to be heading out on the road again, especially in a headlining capacity. It’s great to have the time to delve a little deeper into our full catalogue and play a full set for everyone. There’s some tunes in there that either have never been played live, or haven’t been played in a very long time. So hopefully fans can really get more out of this tour. We’re also really stoked with the bands that are joining us."
