Modern Cinematic Prog Ensemble Circuline To Release New Live CD/DVD/Blu-ray CircuLive::NewView

What do you get when you take two theatrical lead vocalists, a keyboard player from Juilliard, a versatile rock virtuoso on guitar, a zany bass player from another galaxy, and a drummer with progressive rock in his DNA? The modern cinematic rock band Circuline. Nominated for PROG Magazines 2016 Limelight award for best new band, Circuline has toured with Glass Hammer, repeatedly co-headlined the three-day Sonic Voyage Festival, and toured England in summer 2017 opening for IO Earth. Circuline has performed at RoSfest, Philadelphia's Liberty Music Fest, Chicago's Progtoberfest, and Englands Harmonix Festival.

CircuLive::NewView captures the band at ProgStock in an all-newly crafted show that will please any rock fan. In addition to soaring vocals, keyboard wizardry, powerhouse drumming, and virtuoso guitar and bass playing, you will smile and enjoy the keyboard challenge, drum feature, and other fun and entertaining moments. The album was recorded at the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, New Jersey and was Mixed and Mastered by Alek Darson in Toronto, Canada.

Says Andrew, The Concept behind this product is that for the past five years, weve had worldwide sales in 18 countries on six continents. Most of these fans have never had an opportunity to see us perform live. Were producing this live CD/DVD/Blu-ray, so that fans, festivals, and booking agents around the world can see how much weve grown, and what we can really do, when given the opportunity to craft our own show for a big stage. So this product is meant for the fans, and for promoters. The Concept for this concert was to have a GREAT rock concert that ANYONE could enjoy. They dont have to be progressive rock fans; if they love live rock concerts, they will hopefully have fun and appreciate this show.

Darin adds, What we found out after the ProgStock performance is that all the comments about the show included the words fun and entertaining. So with that, we were successful. Its one thing to deliver stellar performances, but adding an element of fun can help some members of the audience enjoy the show and maybe become a fan.

Circuline has two studio albums under their belt, Return and Counterpoint. This new live CD/DVD/Blu-ray is the culmination of two years of touring those two albums, the lessons the band had learned, and the things they wanted people to see and experience. Andrew explains, We sat down and thought about all of the great concerts we had experienced as fans, and asked ourselves, what made those shows great? What did those artists do that made the shows so memorable? What can we do to incorporate some elements like that into our own show? We wrote everything down, and got to work crafting the best show we could, in the time we were allotted. In the future, youll see even more new things, when were doing our Evening with Circuline concert series.

Darin adds, The NewView show could only have happened after two or so years of being out on the road. We discussed shows that everyone in the band had seen and what were their favorite parts and included those concepts into this show. The piano challenge was something Andrew and I wanted to do since we started the band. The drum-off was something I remember seeing Gentle Giant doing, so that was inspired by them. We thought it would be more entertaining to see everybody involved in that section as opposed to just seeing me bashing away up there behind the drums!

Circuline is supporting the release of this album with a Virtual Tour this fall, which includes four new music video releases and Facebook Live Q&A sessions. Theyre also releasing a Meet the Band video series, a Story Behind the Song video series, and a Story Behind the Album video series. The band recently started working on their third studio album, with a forthcoming Making of video series while theyre doing it. The third studio album is scheduled realistically for a Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 release, with accompanying new music videos before, and live gigs afterwards.

Says Darin, Were planning a lot more in the way of virtual or online engagement. So join us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and of course our website for news and updates about future releases and plans. The third studio record is in the works. We will hit the writing, arranging and recording for that project pretty hard come the new year. Shows are a bit ambiguous at present day.

In closing Andrew has this to impart, Come join the party! Have a great time! If you think you dont like progressive rock, or Prog as they say, you might be surprised. Some people said we had the best and most entertaining performance of the ProgStock Festival that year. If you love rock concerts, youll probably enjoy this show, and it might even put a smile on your face!
