Circus Wolves Says Lots on EP Release and What Happens Next!

Five piece band CIRCUS WOLVES have developed their sound of uniqueness for sometime now.... Releasing an EP "This Is Something You Can't Replace", with new music rolling around with exciting new ideas! Nothing but promotion upon this EP release is what is happening here and the band just wants to be themselves and see where it takes them next! The band goes on to say lots more below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Circus Wolves formed while at the University at Leeds in 2013. Originally consisting of band members. Guy on vocals and Cameron on drums, the band moved through a number of different players in the early days, performing as the outfit, ‘Plastic Rabbits’. Jack joined Plastic Rabbits on guitar in 2013 and the group performed throughout the Leeds university scene with varying success. After some further internal changes, Jim took up guitar duties alongside Jack in 2014 and the band began to work on their new sound. 

Post-university, the band returned to their hometown of Manchester and began working on their presence within the vibrant Manchester music scene where they remain to this day. After working through several different bass players, Ben joined the band in 2019 to complete the current outfit and complete the sound for the latest EP offering. 

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

During the Leeds days, we would frequently host practice sessions at the Leeds rehearsal studio, Rock n Roll Circus. It is within Rock n Roll Circus that the first EP was crafted, and the band returned to the Leeds music scene as Circus Wolves. So the name is really a nod to the rehearsal space where we developed as a band. We went through absolutely loads of different names to begin with, some of them are quite cringeworthy to even think of. When we finally came up with the name Circus Wolves, it just fit! 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We’re a Manchester band through and through. The Manchester scene has a well-deserved reputation at home to some of the best acts going. The music scene is just as amazing as it always has been. There are so many great artists basing themselves within the city. You’re really spoilt for choice! Bands like  Kashmere, Ist Ist and Saytr Play are definitely ones to watch! There’s also some great venues in Manchester where you can really get caught up in the scene. Night & Day Café, Jimmy’s Bar and Deaf Institute are all favorites of ours.  

4. How would you describe your style?

Brooding, Post-punk, melodic, frenetic, and emotive. Northern heritage meets modern vibrancy.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve just released our latest EP, ‘This Is Something You Can’t Replace’, which you can listen to on Spotify and all the other major platforms. We’re super proud of the work that’s gone into it and the response has been overwhelming. You can also listen to our earlier singles such as ‘Judas’ and ‘Dance With Me’ too. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

With everything that’s going on at the moment, it’s been tricky to get into the studio. We’ve been playing with some really exciting new ideas though and it will be really exciting to work on these in the future. 

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Before COVID, everything about Circus Wolves was focused on the live scene. We throw everything we can into our live shows and make them as energetic and exciting as possible. Not being able to play shows at the moment is pretty heart-breaking, especially with the new EP release. Rest assured though, as soon as we can get out there again, we’ll be getting the dates in the diary! 

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We want to push our new EP further than anything we’ve done before. It’s the best thing we’ve ever produced and our fans are loving it. We’ll be working hard to spread the word about that for a while yet. Long term plans, as soon as we can, we want to get back together and start thrashing out some of the new ideas we all have. We’re a fan of the sound we’ve worked on for the recent EP, but we’re exciting to evolve again and bring some new ingredients into the mix. It’ll be great to experiment again together. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find us on all the big platforms: Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer etc. 

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The raw energy and drive of the tracks. We’ve worked hard to make sure you can really get the raw power of the music when you listen. We’ve made each one a brooding powerhouse.
