The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS - Dead Let­ter Cir­cus, Jer­rico and Ma­son Rack Band play the Coolan­gatta Ho­tel on Satur­day. Doors open 8pm. Tick­ets are $25.

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.
