Despite their founding member Rob Maric toddling out of the band just a month ago, Dead Letter Circus are putting on a brave face and going on tour. They hardly let the news drop that Maric was leaving before announcing Clint Vincent from Melodyssey as his replacement.
Currently working on their follow-up album to debut This Is The Warning, DLC have promised to showcase some of their new material when they hit stages across the country in April. This Is The Warning debuted at number one on the ARIA charts in 2010 when it was released, and the band are hoping their sophomore record will be just as warmly welcomed. Having successfully toured Australia and North America, the band returned home to travel the country on an environmental campaign, spreading the message of the evil of coal seam gas mining.
After that, Maric's participation in the band began to wane, culminating in his departure early this year.
Joining Dead Letter Circus on tour will be fellow Brisbane outfit, Breaking Orbit, whose first record The Time Traveller has been critically acclaimed. Once they hit Adelaide, the two bands will be supported by Adelaide locals Quiet Child.
