Before returning to Australian shores in January, Liverpool four-piece Circa Waves have dropped the video for their latest single ‘Fossils’ and announced their debut album Young Chasers” will be released through Dew Process / Virgin on 15 March 2015.

The video was directed by LA based Adam Powell (Jamie T, Michael Kiwanuka) and shot during the band’s recent European tour with The Libertines.  View ‘Fossils’ here http://po.st/Fossilsv

Recorded at the historic RAK studios in London in late summer 2014, the 13-track Dan Grech produced album features the band’s most recent singles Young Chaser’s and So Long’. A thrillingly immediate, intuitive and anthemic collection, the album stands as testament to lead singer Kieran Shudall’s rise to one of the best songwriters in the UK right now.

Talking about the inspirations behind the album, Kieran commented: “As a kid growing up in Liverpool you get into bands, it was always bands for me, never really individuals. You buy into ‘that band’. You believe you’re in the gang. I want anyone who listens to our music to feel that.”

“Circa Waves songs are born out of huge frustration and a twisted nostalgia. Leaving school at 16, working shitty low paid jobs, playing in bands and not even registering on anyone’s radar. Maybe never. So that’s why the album now is talking about those experiences because we feel like we have a forum to talk about that looking back. You have to represent that period before you can talk about anything else since.  We want that and our live shows to come across in the recording, you can feel us in that room smashing it out. That was never an afterthought, it was vital to us.”

Having released their debut single, Get Away, in December 2013, the album comes at the end of an amazing 18 months for the band. Bagging the prestigious opening slot on the NME Awards tour alongside Interpol, Royal Blood and Temples in February 2014, the band ended the year in November with a sold-out UK tour culminating in rapturous gigs at London’s Heaven and a hometown show at the Kazimier in Liverpool.

Circa Waves visited Australia earlier this year for Splendour In The Grass and joined Metronomy for their national sideshows and return to Australia in January for a six-show national tour with UK outfit The 1975.
