Circus Maximus Announces New Album "Nine"

Circus Maximus has announced the band's new album "Nine" will be released this coming June on Frontiers Records. The label issued the following statement:

"Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of the anticipated third album from Norwegian Progsters Circus Maximus entitled 'Nine' on June 1st in Europe and June 5th in North America.Five years after the successful release of the concept album 'Isolate,' this time Circus Maximus are back with a strong and mature cd.

"Circus Maximus spent anyway their time also working hard to further refining their sound. With 'Nine' they are poised to take their place alongside the upper echelon of Progressive Metal bands. The band’s musical formula is not easy to accomplish – take jaw dropping musicianship, add a singer like Michael Eriksen with a voice from heaven and toss it together with hooks, anthemic melodies and enough groove and heavy riffing that really gets into your head."

"A lot happened in our personal lives during the past few years," explains drummer Truls Haugen. "Three of us had kids, plus we also had a several bumps in the road with the production. So it has not exactly been a joyride, but it feels great to finally be done, and after all this time we are ready to unleash our new monster!"

“The majority of the material on the new record was written by Mats Haugen and he has taken the music to a kind of simpler and more accessible approach, yet kept the progressive elements and the 'nerve' that is Circus Maximus” says Truls. “We're actually more melodic and heavier on this new record than we've ever been.”

“Nine” will include the following tracks: "Forging," "Architect Of Fortune," "Namaste," "Game Of Life," "Reach Within," "I Am," "Used," "The One," "Burn After Reading," and "Last Goodbye."
