Great EP, Great band
I am not quite sure how I heard about the band Dead Letter Circus, but I am most certainly glad that I did. The EP album is full of emotion and fantastic vocals. It is probably one of the best hard rock albums that I have heard in years. To compare them to anyone, I would have to say that they are somewhat Tool-like, but mainly because of the lead singer, who has a similar singing style to Keenan. He has an amazing range. Great debut album! I cannot wait until a full length release and I hope that can break it big in the US, cuz I would love to see them in concert!
Freakin A !!!
yea so i stumbled over this album on the net while i was surfing looking for new music.... and so decided to check em out. this band has the amazing-ness of tool wrapped up into a incubus slash perfect circle feel to it. the singers voice is just freakin top notch.... style like that of meynard. deftones atmosphere is created in some of he songs with the way the mood is set in the music sequence..... and they do it well. def a band highly recomended. check em out cause they will rock your face off.
Great New Style.
I have been listening to artists such as Karnivool and The Butterfly Effect recent and found my way to Dead Letter Circus. They have all toured together and have similar styles but are able to keep their own. All three of these bands come from Australia and have a very unique sound seperate from american influence. There is something about the guitars and vocals that truly bring out the best of this band. "The Mile" is by far one of the best songs I have downloaded in a long time, starts off fast and keeps going. If you enjoy artists such as Karnivool or The Butterfly Effect you should check these guys out, you will honestly enjoy every second. Australia is seriously pumping out good music with these bands and need to keep it up as well as tour in the U.S.
About Dead Letter Circus
Dead Letter Circus, an Australian alternative rock band with a progressive rock style, made their smash hit album debut with This Is the Warning in 2010. Founded in 2005 in Brisbane, Queensland, the band originally comprised Kim Benzie (vocals), Rob Maric (guitar), Stewart Hill (bass), and Luke Williams (drums). Their influences included Faith No More, Muse, the Mars Volta, and Radiohead. They made their commercial recording debut with Dead Letter Circus (2007), a six-track EP released in association with MGM Distribution that spawned the single "Disconnect and Apply." The following year they released a second EP, Next in Line (2008), which spawned the singles "Reaction" and "Next in Line," the latter of which was a breakout hit for the band. Upon signing a major-label recording contract with Warner Music, Dead Letter Circus made their full-length album debut with 2010's This Is the Warning. Produced by Forrester Savell, This Is the Warning reached number two on the Australian albums chart and featured the singles "The Space on the Wall" and "Big." Founding member Rob Maric departed in 2013, a year that also saw the additions of new bandmembers Tom Skerlj and Clint Vincent and the release of Dead Letter Circus' critically acclaimed sophomore outing, Catalyst Fire, which debuted at number two on the Australian albums chart. An acoustic EP, Stand Apart, arrived in 2014, followed in 2015 by the band's third studio long-player, Aesthesis. The effort peaked at number two on the Australian albums chart and featured the single "While You Wait." In 2017, Dead Letter Circus issued The Endless Mile, which featured unplugged reimaginations of songs from their back catalog. ~ Jason Birchmeier
