Summary:

If you're a fan of bands like Biffy Clyro, Funeral for a friend or pretty much any band that gets regular plays on Kerrang! TV then you should certainly give Circle of Reason a listen.

Faith or Theory is the new album from Southampton based Circle of Reason.  They’ve been getting played on Kerrang! TV and Scuzz TV, so there’s a good chance that if you watch those channels you’ll have heard something from Circle of Reason.

Faith or theory in my view sits somewhere between an EP and an album – it’s too long to be an EP, but with just seven songs and a running time of under half an hour it’s a bit lightweight to be a true album, so “mini-album” seems a good description for it.

I can certainly see why they’ve been getting played on Kerrang and Scuzz – Circle of Reason have a modern rock sound that fits in well with the sort of bands they play, and they will appeal to a young audience.  Check out the video for “Questions” and hear for yourself what they’re like.

The band have included a number of influences in their music, so the variety of styles help add depth to the music.  There’s a prog influence that mixes with the alternative or modern rock foundation very well.  If you’re a fan of bands like Biffy Clyro, Funeral for a Friend or pretty much any band that gets regular plays on Kerrang! TV then you should certainly give Circle of Reason a listen.
