ABOUT STAR CIRCUS
"Chock-full of melodies that earworm their way into your head, set up camp, and refuse to move out"
"A scorching slab of fist-pumping, arena-sized rock loaded with more hooks than you and I deserve"
Star Circus is the brainchild of Dave Winkler (Renegade Playboys, Trophies of Man). After a detour playing guitar and touring as a hired gun for acts such as Bow Wow Wow and Ryan Hamilton, in late 2019 the band materialised out of Dave’s passion to create an album focused around his own material.
“Dave played me the demos and I was blown away by them – song after song crammed with catchy riffs and commercial hooks. I knew straight away that I’d love to work on this album and bring these fabulous songs to life.” - TONY WILSON
Kicking off 2020 with the single 'Love is the Enemy' and a spectacular launch show, followed by the acclaimed videos for 'Save Your Life', 'Just Like in a Movie' and 'Bridges', their Wilson-produced debut album 'Separate Sides' was finally released on December 2nd 2022 to a host of fantastic reviews.
“A stunning debut album… top notch rock-pop, it’s a real peach.” - ERB Magazine
"One of the best debuts you'll hear this year" - FIREWORKS
“Immediately classic... my goodness, they made the most of it.“
- Maximum Volume Music
The current lineup is completed by Sophie Aurélia Young (Bass/Backing Vocals), Jon Crampton (Guitar/Backing Vocals), William Robertson (Keyboards/Guitar/Vocals) and Reuben O'Donoghue (Drums). But the album features some very special guests including Dan Stevens of Inglorious, Tom Draper (Spirit Adrift, ex-Carcass) and some vocals by Ben Christo of Sisters of Mercy.
“Infectious hooks & musical sophistication abound as Star Circus channel frontman Dave Winkler’s inimitable style through the best of ‘70s/‘80s rock, creating a sound both comfortingly classic and excitingly innovative.” - Ben Christo (Sisters of Mercy/Diamond Black)
2022 saw the band playing a string of fantastic live shows, culminating with a packed out album launch, headlining the legendary Underworld in their hometown of London. This year Star Circus intend to take the UK and Europe by storm, check out tour dates below to see where they're playing next.
