In an age laden where oversaturated love song`s and the influx of pop-divas dominating the market, one can't help but wonder if rock has lost its gritty edge. Enter Cirkus. They have single handedly brought back the high energy, fueled music that guarantee to get you rocking while melting your face.
Cirkus, slaps you in the face with Roux'd (vocals), Snetan (guitar), Maston (bass) and Ric (drums), the sound, the edge, and the image of hey-day rockers such as Mötley Crüe and Aerosmith. Their riffs are fast and hard with lyrics that unapologetically attack big city lights, fast women, and the media. Receiving rave reviews and critical acclaim from Europe to Southern California, Cirkus's live performances win over even the biggest skeptics.
Close-up Magazine declares their style as 'pedal to the metal' and 'purely rock 'n' roll.' "With such devotion to quality, you have to bow down and lift your hat." "Singer Roux'd has got the rare ability to push his vocals to the most pressured register, and at the same time make it sound mighty," according to the editors of UNT Fredag.
After releasing 3 successful EP's for three years straight, Cirkus has just finished their full on frontal assault debut album titled Let the Madness Begin together with musical genius Chris Tsangarides, a Grammy nominated producer and mixing engineer for bands such as Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Bruce Dickinson and Yngwie Malmsteen. Let the Madness Begin is set for a US release on November 11th through Nightmare Records/Koch Distribution. It's called a shock to the system and senses so what better way to describe a Cirkus attack than Let the Madness Begin.
Their first US tour led them straight to Hollywood, playing famous venues such as Club Derby, the Cat Club, and Whisky a Go Go. During this tour, Cirkus became the first band to ever be broadcast live on YouTube via the 420 Channel. They have since secured management with Hunt Talent Management.
