The South West’s finest alt-rockers Circle of Reason have kicked off their year striaght away by unveiling the video for their brand new single ‘Themes Amongst Thieves’ this week.
Taken from their recent EP ‘These Hands & This Mind’ and it will mark a new and exciting chapter for the band as the first release through Ambicon Records, the band’s newly signed to label.
With an alt-rock sound mixed with prog influence which has seen the band compared to the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and Queens of the Stone Age. With this their new single they have proved yet again that the music they write is full of interesting afflictions such as the catchy yet obviously metal hooks put alongside chugging guitars and drums that are quite literally been beaten the crap out of. This one is definitely heavier especially compared to their last release ‘Annie May’ but there are still moments of calm in the middle eight and plenty of melodies intertwining throughout.

The single is available to download now via iTunes. The band will also be on tour this January supporting label mates Inherit The Stars around the UK, you can find out more about the tour on a previous post I wrote about the tour this month.
