NEWS: Caligula’s Horse To Tour Europe With Circles And I Built The Sky

As you already know Caligula’s Horse are coming to perform not only Euroblast, but also Prog Power, AmFest and Very Prog Festival this autumn. They have a pretty long way coming to Europe from Australia, so it only makes sense that those won’t be the only dates there. The band just announced many more shows, alongside two other artists that are playing almost every show (beside the festivals).

Caligula’s Horse released their fourth record In Contact last year via InsideOut, and it wasn’t only one of my personal favourite records in 2017 but also of the whole editorial at It Djents. Australia apparently has some magic in their water for musicians, which might be the reason for the supports: Circles and I Built The Sky. 

About the supports:

Circles just signed a new deal with Season Of Mist and are about to release a new record this year. In 2013, they’ve released Infinitas on Basick Records. Over the last few years, they’ve been appearing at Euroblast and touring Europe with bands as Monuments, The Dillinger Escape Plan,or After The Burial. In Australia they are a known name, and finally they’ll be back in Europe! The second support is someone that followers of It Djents might also know: I Built The Sky. Guitar player Ro has created this project back in 2012; since then he released several musical pieces. His LP Sky Is Not The Limit in 2016 is a true gem for fans of instrumental prog metal like Intervals and Plini.

All three bands, considering that I Built The Sky and Circles come from Melbourne (with Caligula’s Horse also being from Melbourne), are friends and buddies, as stated in the official announcement. As Circles comment:

We are stoked to be coming back to Europe for a third time, especially with our bro’s CALIGULA’S HORSE and I BUILT THE SKY. There seems to be something special about having this all Aussie lineup. We’ve got lots of new material to share and can’t wait to be there.
