Tour coming with Closure in Moscow and Sleep Parade. I'm not a fan of either (think they both sound too derivative), but some of the DLC fans probably are.

Release date August 9th with the 1st single "Lodestar" in less than a week.

Mildly intrigued. This Is the Warning had some outstanding tracks like "The Drum," but it also had some minor issues like a samey-ness at points and compression of the cymbals at points.

Along with Asymmetry from Karnivool, this is among the anticipated from down under this year. Especially with the present state of Fair to Midland.

UNFD is proud to announce the release of Dead Letter Circus‘ second album “The Catalyst Fire” on Friday 9 August. The first taste of music from the record will be lead single “Lodestar”, which will be premiered on triple j‘s “Drive With The Doctor” on Thursday 4 July at 4pm.  “Lodestar” will be available exclusively through iTunes the following day.
