“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)
Well, well, well. What a year!
The past 4 months have been awesome, having done no fewer than 10 shows in Camden, Holloway, Kent, Kingston and Leicester. Playing my old home-from-home the Underworld again after so many years was a fantastic highlight. It's really, really good to be back.
We have so much exciting stuff in the pipeline for next year. In the meantime, as 2021 draws to a close, we have but one final show left. Fittingly, it's a Camden Rocks event much like the one that kicked things off back in July. Come party with us at the Dublin Castle on 28th November one last time, before we kiss this bizarre year goodbye! http://camdenrocks.seetickets.com
Here's to the future, raise your glasses!
Star Circus made a triumphant return to the stage on 24th July 2021 at the Camden Assembly, co-headlining an all day Camden Rocks event with The Kut.
But the show very nearly got derailed when the whole band was struck down with Covid 19 two weeks earlier. Luckily Dave, Sophie and Thomas were showing fast signs of recovery, and with non-refundable tickets sold and people travelling in from miles outside London we were able to perform as a power-trio! In addition to this, it was Sophie's first show on bass, and she played like a demon!
Riccardo is now fully recovered and we are rehearsing up a set for a whole bunch of London shows in August and September. Check out our Live page for all forthcoming gigs, and we hope to see you all down the front soon!

You can also buy the track on all the usual platforms, along with our Bandcamp page:
"If you’ve ever watched a really inspiring film and thought ‘I’m gonna wake up tomorrow and life’s gonna be totally different. I’m gonna appreciate every moment, take some huge chances, reach for the stars, love every person I meet…’. Then you actually wake up and life goes back to normal and do none of that, you can probably relate to this song. There’s a positive sentiment that with a bit of a kick we can live like our heroes, but it’s grounded in very British sarcasm and apathy ‘On this fairground ride, where nothing changes and everybody’s fine/ Another day stuck inside, inside your movie…'"

Dave had an important birthday during lockdown. Sadly we couldn't all celebrate together like previous years, so what we did instead was record a charity single for the NHS.
It's a special acoustic version of 'Before The Song Is Over', totally different to the one on the forthcoming album. Featuring live members of Terrorvision, Carcass & The Sisters of Mercy and a host of other friends, it's a beautiful rendition of this anthemic and uplifting song, accompanied by the YouTube video above featuring all 15 of us recording our parts at home, before everyone else made the same video! :-)
Our second single, 'Save Your Life' was released in April 2020. The spectacular video, directed by Stephanie Zapolska and starring Sophie Aurélia Young, received much acclaim and caught the attention of various radio stations and alternative press in the USA, as well as being a favourite of Dunk McKellar on TotalRock radio in the UK.
The debut single 'Love Is The Enemy' was released in February 2020 on all streaming platforms, including YouTube; with this fun and vibrant lyric video.
The launch show for 'Love Is The Enemy' took place at The Lounge 666 in London on 4th February 2020. The Star Circus set was preceded by 2 awesome support bands: Izzy Thomas and New Device. To (quite literally) warm up the crowd, Star Circus kicked off their set with a fire performance spectacle that led straight into the opening song 'Save Your Life'! The show was attended by many of London's rock n' roll elite, and even some international fans who flew in from abroad. The most fun way to start the decade!
