Here’s the New Dead Letter Circus Track!
Comparing Dead Letter Circus to Karnivool is commonplace given both bands are from Australia, but they really do sound so much alike; it’s not as if I’m comparing them to AC/DC or something, or even Twelve Foot Ninja. Nope; Dead Letter Circus and Karnivool are really two peas in a pod, and it just so happens that both acts have new albums coming out this year. We got our first taste of new Karnivool a couple weeks back with the stunning video for “We Are,” and now we get brand new Dead Letter Circus in the form of “Lodestar,” music and video together. Eureka!
OK, one more thing on the Karnivool/DLC comparisons and then I’ll drop it: whereas Karnivool seem to be branching out a little this time around, DLC are sticking with their tried and true formula. And I am totally OK with that. “Lodestar” is everything I hoped it would be, at once exciting, pulsating and grandiose with big, shimmery guitars and high-pitched vocals on top of a driving beat. I like.
The Catalyst Fire will be out August 9th via UNFD.
