WITH CITY OF SOULS & EBONIVORY

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 (tour dates below). Australian tickets are on sale now at wildthingpresents.com

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
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
. 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.
City Of Souls, New Zealand’s six-piece premier alternative-progressive outfit, have just signed internationally to Australian record label Wild Thing Records, as well as UK/EU bookings to Artery Global. They recently released their very first taste of new music – with their new single ‘Wolf’, and its stellar accompanying music video. Amed with lush soundscapes that are deep on emotion, but filled to the brim with hooks, City Of Souls are truly captivating. A true NZ supergroup with members of multi platinum selling NZ acts, and following sharing the stage with Bring Me to The Horizon, Stone Sour, Limp Bizkit and PROGFEST 2019, the time is now to discover this incredible act.
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.
