You’ve heard me say this a couple of times before I am sure and that is how it’s never too late to get into a promising Metal band. For me, Circus Maximus is such an act as while I have heard a couple of tracks over the recent years I cannot really consider myself a diehard acolyte. This fact makes me excited to share the news about their upcoming and very short group of US appearances. Check out the press copy and poster below and then I will close it out with additional thoughts.
The Press Copy:
Circus Maximus will be doing select North American dates prior to their return to ProgPower USA this September. The worldwide-renowned melodic metal band will be joined by Detroit’s rising stars Imminent Sonic Destruction as special guests. Rounding up the lineup is Canadian newcomers Ascendia. South American fans need not worry – dates for Chile, Mexico and Brazil will be announced later this week. Tickets will be available this week and links will be posted soon on Circus Maximus and Infinity Concerts pages.
The Tour Dates:
Sep 2 – Chicago, IL – Reggies
Sep 3 – Toronto, ON – Hard Luck Bar
Sep 4 – Montreal, QC – Cafe Campus
Sep 5 – New York, NY – Studio at Webster Hall
Sep 8 – Atlanta, GA – ProgPower USA Festival (Circus Maximus Only)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: With four exclusive shows outside of the ProgPower USA appearance every single one of these gigs should be packed to the doors and I am not kidding here. I mentioned above that it’s never too late to support something different in the Metal realm and that statement is something that I really stand by especially when we see bands of legend closing up shop as a whole and leaving us wondering where to direct all this Metal energy. Don’t fear not being 100% up on something because much of what my fellow scribes in the online Metal media world and I discuss will not be easily found on the more well-known terrestrial and satellite stations. Instead will require some detective work of your own. I’m planning on being at the NYC show for sure and I wonder what you readers think about this brief go around. Let me know in the comments section below.
