Today, STELLAR CIRCUITS has revealed the first of several new video blogs running in advance of the release of Ways We Haunt, detailing concepts behind the lyrical content, behind-the-scenes footage of recording, and more. Watch episode one here: https://youtu.be/gpFUV3jxVLo
Vocalist Bed Beddick says in the first video blog: “A theme [of the album] that really just started to emerge was – things changing. In particular things being lost…. I think for me a lot of writing this album was dealing with losing things… things in life that you really love that you want to hold onto… that you wish could last forever. But unfortunately, the best things in life are the people that we love and they aren’t always going to be around. A big part of writing this album for me was trying to grow as a person and come to terms with life changing like that – shifts in your own personal paradigm.”

STELLAR CIRCUITS have been churning out massive soundscapes of rock and metal – chock full of the elements of progressive/experimental rock and metal that fans of the genre love with none of the tired fluff in between. In addition to those elements, Ways We Hauntincorporates influences from the outer-sphere of metal and rock, past and present, reflecting out-of-the-box artists like A Perfect Circle, Karnivool, Between The Buried And Me, The Contortionist and beyond.
STELLAR CIRCUITS formed in 2015 with the idea of creating progressively-minded music that resonates with the masses. The name “Stellar Circuits” is derived from the eight-circuit model of consciousness, a theory proposed in the 1970’s about expanding consciousness and understanding the process of our mind as it pertains to existentialism. Although the music revolves heavily around introspection and self-reflection, this is also coupled with the importance of aesthetics and groove.
Creating music both intellectual and visceral, STELLAR CIRCUITS is nothing short of a vehicle – transporting the listener to places both chaotic and cathartic.
