Playground Circus

Playground Circus is a (London based) punk-rock act, originating from the cultural fertile grounds of crisis-ridden Greece. Formed in 2014, they deliver a dynamic mixture of hard boiled energetic rock and roll, dried out in the hot California punk-rock sun and wrapped in 90’s MTV mentality. They self-released their 5-track debut EP the same year, entitled “The King is Born” and took to the stages of Europe to spread their music. Having immediately caught the attention of the Los Angeles music scene, they were invited to host their own monthly residency at the World Famous Whisky a Go Go during the March of 2015. While being on US soil the band continued to tour around California playing historic venues like the Dollhut and Harold’s. Right after their return to Greece they continued to play shows constantly for the next three months. That’s when they started getting some attention from the national media. On October 2015 their song “Pimps and Hypocrites” made the top 10 of 1055Rock, one of the biggest radio stations in Greece and stayed there for 5 weeks. Among the artists they have shared the stage with are: Marky Ramone (Ramones), Michael Graves (Misfits), House of Pain, This is a Standoff, Barb Wire Dolls, Mike Watt (The Stoogies, Minutemen), Atlas Losing Grip, Everlast, Bad Cop/Bad Cop and The Southern Oracle. After relocating to UK they released a couple of singles while constantly performing at the most popular venues of London (Barfly, The Garage, Black heart etc), promoting their name and preparing the grounds for a bombastic full length release. With new lineup and a handful of great songs Playground Circus are ready to conquer the world. Band Members: • John – lead vocals & rhythm guitar • EL – lead guitar • Michael Kumar – bass guitar & backing vocals • Dimitrios J. P. Astrantinis – drums
