Circles, Jericco And Twelve Foot Ninja Combine For ‘Swarm Tour’ 2012

Written by Mike Solo on February 22, 2012

Melbourne’s heavy/progressive music scene is in fine form and three of its finest have joined forces to form an impressive triple bill. Throughout March, Twelve Foot Ninja and ∫ will be joined by newcomers, Circles on the national ‘Swarm Tour’.

Twelve Foot Ninja supported international acts Periphery(US) and Tesseract(UK) last year, prompting Periphery founder/guitarist Misha Mansoor to tweet jubilantly “Twelve Foot Ninja are basically one of the best live bands I have ever seen in my life. Holy f*** they are tight”. They are pretty darn tight.

Alternative rockers Jericco have spent 3 years, 137 live shows, 8 festival appearances and a stack of sold-out headlining gigs honing their craft.
 
With two successful EPs and one live album up their sleeve, the five-piece will release the second single – The Art Of Illusion – from their forthcoming debut album on March 1st 2012, just in time to coincide with ‘Swarm Tour’ commencement.

Relative newcomers Circles, will lend their unique take on progressive metal to the ‘Swarm Tour’ bill. The 5-piece has enjoyed some early success, catching the ear of UK’s Basick Records (home to Monuments & Aliases) who promptly signed the band and released their debut EP The Compass in 2011 to critical acclaim.

The tour will also include local support Breaking Orbit in Sydney.

Definitely a must see if you’re a fan of Dead Letter Circus, Karnivool, Cog, Oceansize, Floating Me, Faith No More, Tool or similar.
