Basick Records has announced the signing of Australia's CIRCLES. The band's debut EP, "The Compass", will be released in the spring. According to a press release, the CD "combines musical influences from technically minded bands such as PERIPHERY and TEXTURES, whilst simultaneously drawing lyrical and vocal comparisons to the early works of INCUBUS and FAITH NO MORE."

Mixing up cutting-edge production techniques with some altogether killer guitar work, CIRCLES "instantly stands out from the metal-by-numbers crowd with its sublime songcraft and incredible vocal delivery," according to a press release.

Commented drummer David Hunter: "We are stoked to be working with Basick Records and to be receiving such a positive international response.

"Our debut EP, 'The Compass', has been along time in the making and we are really excited to get it out there and to hear the reactions. Work on the first album has already begun and is coming along really well for such early stages.

"We would like to thank everyone who has supported us up until this point and we promise the best is yet to come!"
