Finally back home from ROCK MEETS REGGAE 2016 on the wunderful Island of Sri Lanka. WHAT A BLAST – YOU PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO ROCK AND PARTY!!!! You can find pictures and videos of our show right here within a couple of days.

 

Update to Sri Lankan Show: Michael can’t join us on Stage :-(

RC_Presse_RMR2016_RGDue to scheduling problems, Michael will not be able to play the show!!! We all are very saddened about that … BUT we have found an appropriate substitute: RALF GOTTLIEB will join us on stage! Ralf is an outstanding drummer (he learned from the very best – like legendary Joe Porcaro and Mark Schulman – Foreigner, Pink, Simple Minds etc. – just to name a few) and already did substitute jobs for us in the past.

So, welcome aboard, RALF!!

RED CIRCUIT for the 2nd time at the ROCK MEETS REGGAE FESTIVAL 2016 in Sri Lanka!!!

RC_Presse_RMR2016

What a great start for the year 2016. RED CIRCUIT will again be co-Headlining Sri Lankan biggest Rock and Reggae Festival in Colombo, at Viharamahadevi Open Air Theater, on January 30th, 2016. What a big pleasure and honor to be part of this amazing event again!!! And again with the great guys of JAYASRI ­– we are looking forward to you guys and especially to what happens on stage, when we join forces again!!!

We are absolutely excited to visit the beautiful country of Sri Lanka again and meet all you great people again!

We’ll keep you up to date if we have new informations!

Here we go again!

Some of you legitimately wonder why there were now further updates about Red Circuit after publishing “Haze Of Nemesis” in December 2014. No further news, no live show announcements, and so on. Unfortunately we had to take a forced brake in any band activities.

In February our bass player Tommy suffered from a so called idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss on the left ear. After a week in hospital and some weeks of outpatient treatment little improvements happened step by step. In March Tommy decided to take a break of all musical activities to come clean with this new situation and to wait and see about the development of the hearing loss, and so did Red Circuit.

Now, after 5 months of rest, Tommy gave us the signal „I’m back on track!“. Unfortunately the rest didn’t turn out as the big success awaited, the loss of hearing did’t turn back as expected, but the condition of his ear is stable and he really got accustomed to the situation. Tommy: “It’s amazing how your brain can compensate missing audio information. My right ear still works absolutely perfect, so the brain has a very good alignment for the left ear. By constantly training certain hearing situations – upfront stereo speakers, with over-ear headphones, with earplugs, rockmusic, classic music, jazz music, single dominant instruments like violins, horns or classic guitar, I finally improved the way, how my brain interpretes and processes the audio signal I am hearing. So I’ll keep on rockin!”

So here we go again! In the next days we’ll inform you about the next steps and activities that will take action to bring Red Circuit back to stage or studio, or whatever!!!

Official Video of “Digging in the Dirt”

We just published the official video of DIGGING IN THE DIRT, a cover version of Peter Gabriel on our latest release Haze Of Nemesis.

We had the opportunity to join forces with some great guys of the Cooperative State University Mannheim to realize this video. A big THANK YOU to all that have been involved in this project!!!

REMINDER: US-Release on Dec. 2nd!!!

You guys know that we are very excited about the US release!!!

All the best to Glen Harveston and all of the PROG POWER USA Crew, that gave us such a great time in Atlanta, back in 2011. We hope to see you all again someday! In the meanwhile enjoy the new album and have fun with the DVD “Live at PROG POWER XII”!!

The long-awaited third album “Haze Of Nemesis” will be released on October 24, 2014 via Limb Music/Soulfood.

We really appologize to you, our fans, that it took almost 5 years to bring this album to an end, but we think it was worth waiting.

Haze Of Nemesis was no simple process because we truly checked every single one of the songs with great ambition. It’s always a difficult and exhausting process, but at the end it pays off, because every change and every new idea pushed the songs to a new level.

An absolute highlight on Haze Of Nemesis is the duet of Chity with Amanda Somerville on “Worlds Will Collide”, another fine ballade written by Markus Teske.

Beside the studio album with 10 powerful and intense tracks, you will find a full concert DVD of our show at the Prog Power XII USA festival. As a bonus, we put the video of “Oceans Apart” on the DVD, based on live footage we shot during our fabulous show in Sri Lanka in February 2014. Big hug and THANK YOU to our Sri Lankan Fans and all who made this trip happen!

So here is the tracklist of Haze Of Nemesis:

Oceans Apart
My Lonely Heaven
Believing A Lie
Digging In The Dirt
Worlds Will Collide (duet with Amanda Somerville)
Spear Of Fate
Serpents Smile
Silent Roaring
Haze Of Nemesis
My Serenade
Soldier Of Fortune (Bonustrack)
