Deaf Radio is a guitar based desert/heavy rock band from Athens, Greece, formed in 2015. On January 2017 the band releases their debut album “Alarm” on vinyl, which attracts the attention of the independent music industry, gains favourable critics around the world and gets sold-out within the first three months. The album is characterized as a “masterpiece” while the release gig that follows in Athens is performed in front of an ecstatic sell-out crowd.
The recognition of “Alarm” as one of the best albums of the Greek music scene for this year, was for the band the ticket to Ejekt Festival 2017, where they shared the stage with The Killers, The Kills and Circa Waves in a performance marked as remarkably successful.
Having introduced themselves to the local audience by the summer of 2016, Deaf Radio toured Europe in 2017 and opened the two historic shows that Planet of Zeus played in Athens to mark their 10-year- anniversary.
Another highlight for the band was the participation of their video clip for the song “Anytime at the “Silver Screenings Section” of Berlin Music Video Awards.
On winter 2018 the band will go on a European tour again, this time for more than a month.
Their sound is defined by heavy guitar riffs and massive drum beats that blend together with characteristic vocal melodies, creating in this way an explosive and once dark-almost pagan atmosphere. Their lyrics are overwhelmed with existential and sometimes dystopian thoughts bringing to surface their inner worries and concerns.
Playground Circus is a (London based) punk-rock act, originating from the cultural fertile grounds of crisis-ridden Greece.
Formed in 2014, they deliver a dynamic mixture of hard boiled energetic rock and roll, dried out in the hot California punk-rock sun and wrapped in 90’s MTV mentality.They self-released their 5-track debut EP the same year, entitled “The King is Born” and took to
the stages of Europe to spread their music.
Having immediately caught the attention of the Los Angeles music scene, they were invited to host their own monthly residency at the World Famous Whisky a Go Go during the March of 2015. While beingon US soil the band continued to tour around California playing historic venues like the Dollhut and Harold’s.
Right after their return to Greece they continued to play shows constantly for the next three months. That’s when they started
getting some attention from the national media. On October 2015
their song “Pimps and Hypocrites” made the top 10 of 1055Rock, one of the biggest radio stations in Greece and stayed there for 5
Among the artists they have shared the stage with are: Marky Ramone (Ramones), Michael Graves (Misfits), House of Pain, This is a Standoff, Barb Wire Dolls, Mike Watt (The Stoogies, Minutemen), Atlas Losing Grip, Everlast, Bad Cop/Bad Cop
and The Southern Oracle.
After relocating to UK they released a couple of singles while constantly performing at the most popular venues of London (Barfly, The Garage, Black heart etc), promoting their name and preparing
the grounds for a bombastic full length release.
With new lineup and a handful of great songs Playground Circus are ready to conquer the world.
