Formed in 2001, the psychedelic rock trio Circus Devils features vocalist Robert Pollard, backed by brothers Todd Tobias and Tim Tobias.
In their first album in six years, and their 15th overall, Circus Devils is back with Squeeze The Needle (due October 27 via GBV Inc.); a funhouse romp full of rock and roll swagger and childlike glee. The pounding psychedelia of the single “The Owl Presents…” harkens back to the Doors. Mixed into the 20-track song collage are heavy rock thumpers (“Street Toughs,” “Mama’s Got a Brand New Snake”), cryptic interludes (“Age of Transfusion”), and pretty acoustic pieces (“Difficult Dreamer,” “The Joke is Over”).
To celebrate their forthcoming release, today, the group shares the record’s first single, “Here We Are,” alongside this accompanying music video.
