If anyone tells you that hook-laden, in-your-face hard rock is dead make sure to point them in the direction of Streetlight Circus. Hailing from New York City, Streetlight Circus has been making rock and roll filthy again with its killer blend of high-energy riffs, thunderous rhythms and soaring vocals.
With a host of influences ranging from power-pop to classic heavy metal, singer/bassist David Shaw, guitarists George Giannoulis and Fabio Bargna, and drummer Erik Fehrenbach have stormed onto the national scene with appearances at the M3 Music Festival, the Great South Bay Music Festival and on stages throughout the country, as they have shared bills with countless nationally acclaimed acts. Whether on a festival stage or in front of crazed club crowds from New York City’s Webster Hall to Hollywood’s Whisky a-GoGo, Streetlight Circus can be depended on for an electrifying live show as well as songs that will rattle around in your head long after the lights come down.
The band has released a full-length, self-titled debut album as well as a follow-up EP called The Snake Mountain Sessions, both to great reviews. Currently, Streetlight Circus is debuting new songs intended for its next collection with plans to record later this year. If the Streetlight Circus is coming to town, don’t miss it. It’s the greatest show on dirt! More information can be found at www.streetlightcircus.com.
