Melbourne’s Branch Arterial have shared a lyric video for their latest track, ‘Circus‘.

In 2013, Branch Arterial began producing this, their debut album, ‘Beyond The Border‘. After a fantastic start to the process, the band was forced into a hiatus after bassist Kade Turner was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident in South America that almost cost him his life. Shortly following this traumatic event, lead vocalist Nigel Jackson began battling a life threatening illness, which involved a bone marrow transplant. Both Kade and Nigel spent substantial stays in hospital. Both recovered well after extensive periods of treatment to complete the album.

2017 sees the band overcoming this adversity as they release this debut album on Friday 28th April.

Check out ‘Circus‘ below.

Recorded at Pony Music and Two Brothers Studios in Melbourne; Branch Arterial’s debut album is an eclectic mix of songs which tackles an array of issues. Climate change, abuse, drug addiction, schizophrenia, depression, and personal failure.

The five-piece progressive rock act from Melbourne formed in 2009. They are driven by exploring their musical boundaries. Their relentless need to push themselves with regards to their song craft, musicianship, and chemistry as a band, can be clearly heard on their two earlier releases – The EP ‘Voices Unknown‘ (2011), and follow up single ‘Faces‘ (2012).

Always setting high standards for themselves when performing live, their ‘Voices Unknown‘ EP launch sold out Melbourne’s iconic Esplanade Hotel. The band has also shared the stage across Australia with the likes of Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja, and international acts Flyleaf, and Klone.
