Richard Dawson & Circle

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
