Halo Circus are pleased to present the official video for “Band Aid,” co-written by Paul Williams and featured on the band’s upcoming EP, The East Lansing Sessions, out May 5. Check it out HERE.
Lead singer Allison Iraheta states, “This video was shot entirely in Taft, Calif., one of the 30 cities that brought us to their town last fall on our first-ever fully crowdfunded American tour. We wanted to capture our experience, both visually and emotionally. When we were driving through the country and staying in people’s homes, it was very clear to us that this is not a divided country. What we saw were good people dazed by hard times and towns struggling for the dignity of better days. We have no political agenda or affiliation. Our agenda is love.”

Bilingual rock band Halo Circus was co-founded by former American Idol star Allison Iraheta and multi-platinum producer, producer and bassist Matthew Hager (Duran Duran, Scott Weil); joined on guitar by Brian Stead. Refreshing, arresting and completely original, Halo Circus have developed a reputation for their impressive live performances. The band released their highly anticipated debut full-length album, Bunny, on June 24, 2016. The album has already received a great deal of critical acclaim, including one LA Music Critic award for Best Pop Female Artist (Allison Iraheta) and four nominations: Best Rock Band; Best Pop Female; Best Single (Desire); and Best Video (Desire).
“Tuhka” EP is the second release from the Finnish rock band Karmia after changing their lyrics from English to Finnish. In the early 2010’s while forming the band they took influences from the Japanese Visual Kei scene, but have recently shifted closer towards their melancholic Finnish roots.
Before the recent language change Karmia warmed up shows for a few Visual Kei artist’s visiting Finland, performed at Anime conventions and released a bunch of self-financed songs and videos in English and even in Japanese. After releasing a single called “Mistakes” combining English and Finnish lyrics together in one song, their native one started to feel more appealing. “After a long search we feel we have found our own style. Welcome to the world of Karmia, where you can always see the dark at the end of the tunnel”, comments the band’s lead guitarist ANA.

The excitement on that stage for their craft and their love for the audience is awe-inspiring and I'm thrilled to be back with the pack to rock the nation this holiday season."
