Fresh from supporting Muse, dominating the main stage of the world renowned Big Day Out festivals across Australia, and debuting at No 2 in the charts in 2010, Dead Letter Circus are set to tour the UK in June/July 2011. The tour follows the release of their debut UK album ‘This Is The Warning’ on the 9th of May 2011.
The four piece, who hail from Brisbane, fuse driving alternative rock with progressive overtones. It’s a tantalising combination that has shot Dead Letter Circus to the very forefront of a burgeoning Australian scene that boasts such alumni as Karnivool and Cog. But part of the beauty of DLC in the soaring, sing-a-long choruses, chiming atmospherics and delay soaked tones is the band escape easy classification via labels or scenes.
Dead Letter Circus are primed to bring their incredible sounds to the UK in June and July, before they embark on US dates to support their recent signing with Sumerian Records.
