Los Angeles-based rock act CIRCUS DIABLO will play as a three-piece on January 30 at Venice Rocks in Venice, California. "As Ricky [Warwick, guitar] is trucking around the UK with THE ALMIGHTY, Rob [Patterson; guitar; KORN, OTEP] jumped back over to KORN [as the band's touring guitarist] and who knows where any of the other guys are right now?!" stated vocalist Billy Morrison. "We have been messing around in a rehearsal room as a three-piece. And we liked what we heard. So that's how this show will be played. A three-piece. Never done it before, but I have to tell ya... it's a lot of fun!!"
CIRCUS DIABLO will write and record a second album during 2008 with the current lineup of Morrison, Charles Ruggiero (drums; SLUNT), Patterson and Patrick Cornell.
CIRCUS DIABLO recently posted the song "Mary's Shadow" on the group's MySpace page. The track is a bonus cut recorded during the sessions for the band's self-titled debut album, which came out this past summer via Koch Records.
Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) played drums on the group's CD, which was released on July 3, 2007.
CIRCUS DIABLO's recording lineup on the first album included THE CULT guitarist Billy Duffy, THE ALMIGHTY frontman Ricky Warwick (guitar), Morrison (vocals), and former FUEL/current RIDERS ON THE STORM frontman Brett Scallions (bass).
