Circuline Releases New Official Video for “Forbidden Planet”

“Forbidden Planet” – Music by Andrew Colyer and Darin Brannon. Lyrics and vocal melodies by Randy McStine. Additional vocal harmonies by Andrew Colyer, Natalie Brown, and William Spillane. Guest guitarist is Alek Darson (Fright Pig, Meridian Voice Project).

Circuline’s newest release, “Counterpoint” (May 2016), features an All-Star lineup of SEVEN guest guitarists: Randy McStine (The Fringe, Lo-Fi Resistance); Doug Ott (Enchant); Alek Darson (Fright Pig, Meridian Voice Project); Ryche Chlanda (Fireballet, Renaissance, Flying Dreams); Alan Shikoh (Glass Hammer); Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact, Dave Kerzner); and Stanley Whitaker (Happy the Man, Oblivion Sun). The compositional team of Colyer/Brannon returned for this second album, partnered with the songwriting of McStine, and the vocal arrangements of Spillane/Brown/Colyer. Immediately, the album started garnering praise and new fans.

Performing original cinematic progressive rock, Circuline was founded in 2014 when former progressive rock tribute band Downing Grey members Andrew Colyer (keyboards, vocals), Bill Shannon (guitars, vocals), and Darin Brannon (drums, percussion) had a burning desire to write original material. Lead vocalists Billy Spillane and Natalie Brown were up for the challenge, having performed in countless venues as singers, actors, dancers, and rock musicians. New guitarist Beledo (as of January 2016) brings a whole new dimension to the band’s compositions and live performances.

Circuline’s debut album, “Return” (released Spring 2015), featured Guest Artists Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact) on bass, Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) as a songwriter and vocalist, and Joe Deninzon (Stratospheerius) on electric violin. Paul Ranieri (Shadow Eden, Mark Wood Rock Orchestra) joined the lineup as touring bassist in late 2014, and joined the band for their second album starting in summer 2015.

Art direction, graphic design, and video editing: Darin Brannon

Band marketing: Andrew Colyer

Band management and booking: Thomas Palmieri of NicJoy Productions
Legal Management: Ronald Bienstock
