Richard Dawson & Circle

This is an archive item from Supersonic 2022

For Supersonic 2022 we bring these two old friends of the festival together to hear their fine mingling of worlds in the flesh!

This is a joyous new collaboration. Expect the singular voice and shambolic guitar-driven arrangements of dark-humoured bard Richard Dawson to weave in and out of Circle’s Krautrock beats, heavy riffs, arty noise & dark psychedelia. Unlike any metal music you have heard before, their material deals with special plants throughout history, making it the greatest flora-themed hypno-folk-metal record you’ll hear this year. 


“It was like being a teenager and suddenly being asked to go onstage with Iron Maiden, that’s how important this band [Circle] are to me.”

– Richard Dawson
