The Record Club to welcome Circa Waves as first guests of 2023 to discuss new album Never Going Under

The indie-rock icons are back to chat their new LP with Jess Iszatt.

Circa Waves have been announced as the first guests on The Record Club for 2023. 

Originally formed in Liverpool in 2013, Kieran, Sam, Colin and Joe have just dropper their fifth album Never Going Under via Lower Third Records.

Their first album in nearly three years, Circa Waves' new record sees frontman Kieran take control of both lyricism and production in what's been called their most personal album yet, written during the pandemic and coinciding with the birth of Kieran's first child.

Circa Waves have so far scored three UK Top 10 albums, with 2015's Young Chasers (10), 2019's What's It Like Over There? (10) and 2020's Sad Happy becoming their highest-charting LP to date (4). Only 2017's Different Creatures just missed out on a top placement, peaking at Number 11.

The band will be joining BBC Radio's Jess Iszatt for an exclusive sit-down chat across The Record Club and Official Charts socials next Wednesday (January 18) at 5.30pm. 

Fans are also encouraged to submit their own questions live on-stream in the chat boxes as we'll be putting the best ones to them live - with one lucky fan whose question is asked winning a pair of snazzy Bowers & Wilkins headphones.
