If you read my review of This Is The Warning then you know how I feel about Dead Letter Circus. This Australian band came to my attention when I heard that they’d be signed to Sumerian Records, a label that has a lot of amazing talent signed on. So, after hearing the album (mind blown) and seeing that they were doing a US tour with Animals As Leaders (interview here), I knew that I had to meet up with the guys and have a little chat.

Last year I was blown away by Australia’s Karnivool and their album Sound Awake. Their song New Day ended up getting my Song of the Year for 2010 and I still blast that album to this day. Well, this year brings me another Aussie band: Dead Letter Circus. Their debut album, This Is The Warning, has been out for over a year down under but is only just now getting a proper US release through Sumerian Records on July 26th. Produced by Forrester Savell, the same man who produced Sound Awake, there are obvious ways to connect the sound of Dead Letter Circus to Karnivool. But is This Is The Warning different enough to stand out on its own?
