“Possessing an eclectic range of influences stretching from classic hard rock, through AOR, ’80s Glam Metal, ’90s American power pop... these fuse faultlessly to form a sound that is stacked full of infectious melodies, grandiose vocal and instrumental harmonies plus colossally catchy choruses. It is this musical melting pot that makes Star Circus so fascinating.” - Sophie James (MetalTalk)

Separate Sides was released on 2nd December.
We are thrilled and humbled by the critical acclaim it has received. The reviews were all positive, ranging from 7/10 to 10/10 in all printed and online magazines and blogs. Here are some of our favourite quotes:
“A stunning debut album… top notch rock-pop, it’s a real peach.” (8/10) - ERB Magazine
“To say it’s a special album doesn’t do it justice. ‘Separate Sides’ is one of the classiest, most heart-stopping albums you’ll hear.” (10/10) - Rock Queen Reviews
"Superb, infectious fun. It's absolutely chock-full of melodies that earworm their way into your head, set up camp, and refuse to move out again." (8/10) - Powerplay Magazine
"Star Circus are onto a winner with this album... A dose of power-pop makes for a fine debut." - Get Ready to Rock Blog
“Hearty slabs of rock and poppy goodness… Star Circus have much to share and enjoy, ones to keep an eye on.” (4/5) - Black Velvet Magazine
"Catchy ditties like 'Save Your Life, 'Something and 'Just Like In A Movie' suggest bags of potential." (7/10) - Classic Rock Magazine
“The future comes with the knowledge that this is the band’s debut and if there is more of this sumptuous pop rock to come then the world will be a better place for it.” (9/10) - My Global Mind
"This band seems tipped for success and after many listens of 'Separate Sides' I can understand why!" - Fireworks Magazine
The Camden Underworld, on a Saturday night!
Did that actually just happen?
Despite train strikes, the plague and bloody Saxon scuppering our plans - The Underworld Camden was absolutely rammed with so many awesome people!
Excellent sets from Dramalove and Jordan Red did nothing for our nerves, how the hell did we follow that?
Fortunately the stars were aligned and we played probably our most memorable gig to date!

What a Weekend!
Now that our ears have stopped ringing and we've caught up on sleep, we would like to thank Raz White and the Upstaged team for putting on a fantastic line-up of bands for Saturday's Trailblazer event at Nightrain, Bradford.
Such a fantastic array of performances throughout the day, and lots of fun meeting and catching up with everyone.
Prymå, Richy Neill and the Reinforcements, Circus 66, God Damn Smile, Square Wild, Deepshade, UNTIL 9 and Atlanta's finest rockers, headliners Kickin Valentina (special thanks to guitarist Heber Pampillon for taking the time to chat with us after the show). Hope we get to share a stage again with all of you, at Call Of The Wild Festival or otherwise!
Also, fantastic to play the famous Giffard Arms, supporting Gorilla Riot on Friday. Much thanks to Brett Hall for setting that up. Can't wait to get back on the road and rock you all again!

Star Circus are thrilled to have got the industry vote at our Quarter Final Heat of the Isle of Wight New Blood Competition. It also marked the debut show of our new guitarist Jon Crampton!
Jon has stepped in following the departure of Riccardo, who is leaving the UK for the rocky landscapes of Montenegro. We couldn't be more thrilled to welcome Jon, an accomplished player, having toured extensively with blues-rock icons Black State Highway and worked closely with Dave in Trophies Of Man.
Out of the thousands of hopefuls that entered the competition, only a handful now remain in the Semi-Finals. These artists are some of the most exciting and promising acts on the scene and will all be competing for a coveted slot at Isle of Wight Festival 2022!
So make your voice heard and come root for us us at 93 Feet East on Friday 15th April 2022!
