Leaving Circles Around The Sun 28/3/20
Today's Track Of The Day is Circles Around the Sun's 'Leaving (Rogue Lemon)', the third single off the band's new full-length self-titled studio album. The seven track collection marks the final recordings of founding member and guitarist Neal Casal. The sessions were tracked at recording engineer Jim Scott's Southern California studio just one week prior to Casal tragically taking his own life. In a note left behind by Casal, he requested that the album be completed and for the band to continue in his absence. CATS, as they are known to fans, has since made the decision to honour those wishes. For the immediate future, the band comprised by keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Dan Horne and drummer Mark Levy will move forward without adding a permanent member to fill Casal's seat, but to instead rotate different guitarists in his place.
