Playground Circus is a 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.
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, Atlas Losing Grip, Everlast, Bad Cop/Bad Cop and The Southern Oracle.
At the moment, they are the final stages of mixing and mastering their first full length album, “King for a Day”.
