Circa Waves have made their return with new single ‘Hell On Earth’.
The new track marks the “start of a new era” for the Liverpool band, whose latest album Sad Happy arrived in 2020. It also sees the group offering a new zeitgeist-driven sound, with the arena-primed track tackling societal ills in 2022.
“Hell On Earth is about the world moving so fast around you you’re struggling to keep up,” explained frontman Kieran Shudall of the new track.
“Record stores closing, politicians lying more than ever, social anxiety at its highest level and that general feeling some days that everything is going wrong.”
On the track’s chorus, Shudall sings: “I think I’ve died and gone to hell/ And I don’t care/ I don’t care cos it was hell on earth.”
The group will also perform on the Main Stage East at Reading & Leeds 2022 next weekend, their latest in a busy summer of festival performances that has also included recent appearances at Spain’s Benicassim and London’s one-day Community Festival.
