Circa Waves want to headline Reading & Leeds - "Why the fuck not?"

Circa Waves want to headline Reading & Leeds - "Why the fuck not?"
There may not be a band more primed for this summer than Circa Waves.

If you thought you knew exactly what they stood for, what they want to be and who they are - then ‘Different Creatures’ is about to change things up.

Throwing off those summer-day restraints, it’s the counter-punch record that’ll catapult them up festival bills, send them back on the road to those live nights of joyous abandon and onto the biggest stages - but more than that, it’s one that means something. With ‘Different Creatures’ there’s only one destination for Circa Waves.

“I’m so ambitious now,” exclaims Kieran, his face lighting up with pure adrenaline and passion when thinking of what’s ahead. “When I started it was very much like, ‘oh, this is really cool’ - but now, once you’ve reached that step, you just want more.

“I wanna be headlining Reading & Leeds. I wanna be headlining - why the fuck not! Kings Of Leon and The Killers can’t headline them forever, so bands like us need to step up - and with this record, I think we’ve got a point to prove that we are that next generation.

“And the record does that completely! I’ve got massive confidence in it, and I think people will see that and believe in us.”

Just like the rest of the world, Circa Waves are restless, pissed off and ready to fight back. The summer’s here, and the climate’s about to take one hell of a swing.
