Two weeks ago, hot on the heels of releasing their new double album, Let It WanderCircles Around The Sun cancelled their 5-date Northeast tour due to an “urgent health matter”. Now, the question of who’s health was in question and why Circles Around The Sun had to cancel their tour seems to have been answered.

You’re watching the official music video for Circles Around The Sun – ‘One For Chuck’ from their new album ‘Let It Wander’. ‘Let It Wander’ is the second album from Circles Around the Sun, but the quartet agrees that in many ways it feels more like their first.

Rolling Stone magazine said: “Let It Wander is a two-CD set of even deeper spells that thread suggestions of Little Feat–style grooves and Bernie Worrell’s percolating synthesizers in Parliament-Funkadelic through the German mid-Seventies space travel of Tangerine Dream and the offbeat churn of the Dead’s “Estimated Prophet.” – David Fricke

Three years ago, guitarist Neal Casal formed the band with keyboardist Adam MacDougall (his bandmate in the Chris Robinson Brotherhood), bassist Dan Horne and drummer Mark Levy to record some Grateful Dead-influenced instrumentals to be played during the set breaks at the Dead’s “Fare Thee Well” concerts. “That was supposed to be the end of it,” Casal says.
Instead, there was an album, Interludes for the Dead, followed by several acclaimed live performances. The response was so positive, and the band was having so much fun making music together, that they agreed to keep it going, MacDougall says. “The chemistry the four of us had was instant and undeniable. It felt like we’d barely scratched the surface of what we could do, which is why we wanted to get back in the studio.”
It took nearly three years, but Circles Around the Sun – usually shortened to CATS.
