It looks like Christmas may have come early for Circles fans as the band have released their new music video for song ‘Another Me’, as well as allowing the track to be downloaded for free at MetalHammer.com.
The track received its debut airplay on BBC Radio 1’s Rockshow last week and is featured on the Australian band’s currently un-named forthcoming debut album which is set to be released in Spring 2013.
Speaking about the new track, vocalist Perry Kakridas said: “This song marks a new, yet familiar direction for Circles. Another Me, may be one of the heaviest songs that we’ve written to date. However, as always we’ve managed to produce a stark contrast to this, with our melodies. I’m proud of this song and the story that goes with it. To me, it signifies a rebirth for me as a member of Circles, as a musician and as a person. Simply put, there is another me.”
The music video was filmed by director Dave Hunter, who is also the bands drummer. Dave said: “This video was a different experience for us, because we hadn’t tackled a storyline element before. The story came from an idea for a short film I was working on a few years back. After some tweaking with the guys, it all fell into place quite nicely. Especially with the lyrical content of the song. In true Circles form everything was produced in house. I filmed and edited the video (except for the shots of me actually playing) and Ted Furuhashi, Circles guitarist, recorded/mixed and mastered the track, as he will be doing for the album. We even got a good friend of ours to make the masks from scratch.”
Circles have been hard at work promoting their brand of Australian metal worldwide since the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘The Compass’ in May 2011. Throughout 2012 the band have been on the road touring across their homeland of Australia, whilst also creating and writing much of their new material for this upcoming debut album which is set to take the band into previously unchartered waters with a fresh and unique sound.
The band have a final message for fans: ‘Merry Christmas to all you Circles fans out there, we wanted to end the year on a high with a special gift for everyone who has supported us so far and we hope to be seeing you all real soon….literally!”
