NEW JERSEY – Gyre, New Jersey’s emerging progressive metal outfit, has released its new EP ‘Second Circle’ today on Monolithic Records. ‘Second Circle’ can be downloaded now via the Monolithic Bandcamp at: http://theironcouncil.bandcamp.com/album/second-circle.

Commented the band, “Everyone in Gyre is so excited to finally release our second EP ‘Second Circle’ through Monolithic Records. The music on the EP is a testament to five guys’ year worth of frustration, learning, adapting and, ultimately, enjoyment and creation.
“We are so grateful to everyone at themonolith.com for believing in us and showing us the support we were always looking for. We appreciate all the kind words we have received so far: from writers to people at shows, to family and friends. The positivity makes us want to create more and more.
“We understand that no band is an island. This band’s journey off our little island has just begun. Our musical tentacle web is now in the weaving.”

Recorded with Kevin Antressian at Backroom Studios (Dillinger Escape Plan, The Number 12 Looks Like You, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam), ‘Second Circle’ is inspired by T.S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland” – feelings of all-destructiveness, delusion, disdain and the understanding that we must consume to produce.
“Listeners can expect progressive metal that does not lose sight of the power of structure and song, and an understanding that it is the connection between our emotions that really get messages across to audiences,” added the band. “As Nietzsche said, ‘In music the passions enjoy themselves.’ Come enjoy our passion with us.”
Gyre will continue to play live throughout the Northeast in support of the new EP.
