‘Never Going Under’, Circa Waves’ fifth studio album, is set for release on January 13 via Lower Third Records. So far, the band have released three other previews of it: ‘Hell On Earth’ back in August, ‘Do You Wanna Talk’ in September, and ‘Carry You Home’ last month.
Announced alongside the lattermost single was a run of live shows to launch ‘Never Going Under’. January will see Circa Waves perform in Kingston, Bournemouth, Chalk and Totnes, with shows in York, Liverpool and Dundee set to follow in February. Find tickets for all of the dates here.
