A celebration to write home about
BRISBANE band Dead Letter Circus – vocalist Kim Benzie, guitarist Rob Maric, bass player Stewart Hill and drummer Luke William – will rock the Coolangatta Hotel on New Year’s Eve. Since blasting their way on to Australian airwaves in 2007, the band – often likened to The Mars Volta and Karnivool – hasn’t looked back. Dead Letter Circus’s self-titled EP launched a wild ride of sold-out shows, massive radio airplay, festival singalongs and US major label interest. The band shifted more than 13,000 units of the EP, released independently, and subsequent double A-side single Next in Line/reaction, as Triple J placed everything on high rotation. However, things shifted to a new level when the band released its debut album, This is the Warning, in May last year. It debuted at No.1 on itunes, but was pipped for the ARIA No.1 by Justin Bieber. Live, Dead Letter Circus have become festival favourites and earned a legion of fans after opening for Muse on their December 2010 Australian tour. The band has been touring the US after releasing This is the Warning there.
