New York City rockers Streetlight Circus to tour the U.K. in June 2018
Streetlight Circus will be making their debut U.K. tour with eight dates in ten days during the month of June 2018.
The group’s press release states in part (with slight edits):
“New York City-based hard rock band Streetlight Circus will make its U.K. debut with a string of dates scheduled for the middle of June 2018. With eight shows in ten days, the band is looking to establish a foothold outside the United States and to keep building its brand and fan base.
Streetlight Circus will be touring in support of its third album release, Needle Down. The record was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, NY (Lamb of God, Black Tide, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and was mixed and mastered by famed engineer Bob St. John (Extreme, Duran Duran, Collective Soul).
Needle Down continues the Streetlight Circus tradition of in-your-face hard rock, mixing an old school vibe with a modern approach to songwriting. The album, like the band’s previous releases, is full of high-energy, melodic rock songs displaying the band’s penchant for solid musicianship, soaring vocals and memorable hooks.
Since 2010, Streetlight Circus has been a hot property in the resurgence of hard rock and roll. The band has rocked thousands thanks to invites to festivals such as the M3 Rock Fest, Rock ‘N Derby, Rock Carnival, The Great South Bay Music Festival, Soundwave Music Festival, and others. The quartet has performed to packed houses throughout the U.S., from the Sunset Strip in Hollywood to theatres in New York City and up and down the East Coast.
An ever-growing fan base has seen Streetlight Circus share bills at large venues with a wide variety of heavyweights such as Halestorm, Twisted Sister, Sixx:AM, Anthrax, Megadeth, Buckcherry, Faster Pussycat, A Day to Remember, Five Finger Death Punch, Queensryche, Ghost, Shinedown, Tom Keifer, Bret Michaels, Avatar, The Doobie Brothers, Billy Squier, L.A. Guns, D-A-D, Kix, and countless others. The band prides itself on providing concertgoers with a high voltage live show…
