Dynamic and dark, New Zealand’s Battle Circus douses the senses with stunningly dramatic ferocity. The four-piece’s reputation for explosive performances and bold, ambitious musical arrangements has led them to take the stage at numerous international festivals.
These three songs tease the band’s debut full-length album, following the post-apocalyptic-themed debut EP, The Half-Light Symphony. Due for release later this year, the new album is unashamedly grandiose in both scale and ambition, and explores the full breadth of the musical ability the band’s live performances deliver.
