Listen to new Dead Letter Circus track The Real You

Dead Letter Circus have released a stream of their new single title The Real You.

The track will feature on the Australian outfit’s upcoming self-titled album, which will launch on September 21 via BMG. It was recorded over a six-week period at Studio Circuit on the Gold Coast and will be the band’s first record of new material since 2015’s Aesthetes.

Frontman Kim Benzie says: “The Real You was me absorbing the cultural changes that have grown around social media. Life should be a journey towards letting go of the mask you create with your insecurities when you’re young. 

“It feels like we’ve accidentally created a culture where the concept of the mask is now what you aspire towards. The song is about craving an interaction that doesn’t have a filter.”

Benzie is joined in the lineup by guitarist Clint Vincent, bassist Stewart Hill, drummer Luke Williams and guitarist Luke Palmer.

Dead Letter Circus is now available for pre-order. Find further details below.
