Circa Waves today announce their first UK headline tour since October 2015. Beginning at Sheffield Academy on 18th March 2017 and taking in London Forum on 31st March, the tour – their biggest to date – is in support of their eagerly anticipated second album ‘Different Creatures’, which will be released on Virgin EMI on March 10th. The tour closes here in Cambridge when the band play the Cambridge Junction on Tuesday 4th April.

Lead track ‘Wake Up’ was last week revealed on Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1. Listen . A juttering, barbed statement-of-intent, ‘Wake Up’ sees walls of fuzzed guitars jostling for space with Kieran Shudall’s trademark melodies, re-introducing the world to a band ready to push their sound forward and claim their place at the top table of UK guitar bands.

Co-produced by Alan Moulder (Foals, Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins), ‘Different Creatures’ is the grittier, ‘night time’ counterpart to the breezy summer vibes of its Top 10 predecessor ‘Young Chasers’, exuding a newfound swagger. Shaped by Kieran’s perceptive songwriting ability to reflect the changes he sees in the world, ‘Different Creatures’ showcases a world-weary, louder and more vital band, nudging their sonic palette into a territory shared with rock heavyweights such as Arctic Monkeys and Queens Of The Stone Age.
