To borrow a saying from a very popular TV show, "Winter Is Coming!”. Melbourne bred progressive alternative rock juggernaut Circles are today announcing their ‘Winter’ Tour across Australian landscapes, and to the shores of New Zealand throughout July & August 2019, with a new music video for their single ‘Winter’ (off latest album The Last One) forthcoming as well. In addition, they are taking fellow Wild Thing Ballarat prog-punk sensation Ebonivory along for the ride. With each band’s recent performances at Progfest 2019 completely breathtaking, and with Circles' live show one of the most powerful and mind blowing going around, this is a tour you definitely do not want to miss!

The tour lands in New Zealand first, where Auckland’s post-alternative rock kings City Of Souls will headline shows in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch, then returns to Australia for Circles’ headline shows in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Belgrave, and Ballarat.

2018 was a watershed year for Circles, releasing their masterpiece album The Last One through Wild Thing Records in Australia/New Zealand and Season Of Mist internationally. Louder said that The Last One was "...very much in a similar fashion to countrymen Karnivool, Circles have crafted a modern progressive tapestry with plenty of wider appeal thanks to songwriting nous coupled with their apparent technicality."

They then joined TesseracT on their Australian Tour in September as special guests. Soon after, Circles jetted off on their momentous return to Europe, touring across the continent with fellow Australian progressive rock trailblazers Caligula’s Horse between October-November, while also appearing at prominent festivals ProgPower Europe and Euroblast. Upon their return to Australia, they dazzled audiences on tour with Dead Letter Circus in December, before mesmerising Progfest in January 2019, with memorable performances as the festival’s Australian headliner playing to full houses every night.

Hailing from Ballarat in rural Victoria, Australia, Ebonivory creates an engaging mosaic of raw emotion, complex rhythmic devices, and prismatic melody. The world-class 5-piece ensemble employs a unique distillation of alternative rock, progressive metal, post-hardcore and modern punk, delivering a breathtaking performance that unifies musicians, melomaniacs, and casual listeners alike. Recently, they announced singing to Wild Things Presents for Management.
