The Police Legend Andy Summers And Rob Giles Form New Band Circa Zero

DEBUT ALBUM "CIRCUS HERO" AVAILABLE TOMORROW ON 429 RECORDS

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legendary guitarist with The Police, fiercely iconoclastic composer and songwriter Andy Summers has teamed up with singer songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Rob Giles (The Rescues)  to form Circa Zero who are celebrating the release of their debut album Circus Hero tomorrow.  The band will appear at the Grammy Museum on Wednesday, August 26th for a live talk and performance as part of their series "The Drop." Event begins at 8pm (doors 7:30) and tickets are $25.  On Thursday, March 27th, Circa Zero will perform at the event "The Podcast Legal Defense Fund Benefit Show" with Adam Carolla, Jimmy Kimmel, Marc Maron, KROQ's Kevin and Bean and more.  The show will take place at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center at 8pm. Tickets are $50-$100.  Circa Zero recorded their debut album Circus Hero at Summers' studio Bowl of Cherries in Venice, CA and signed a worldwide deal with 429 Records. Produced by Summers and Giles, Circus Hero is an exhilarating musical ride created by musicians dead set on launching a long term vibrant endeavor.  429 Records will release Circus Hero worldwide tomorrow, March 25th.  The Grammy Museum is located at 800 W. Olympic Blvd. Los Angeles, CA  90015.  The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center is located at 1935 Manhattan Beach Blvd., Redondo Beach, CA 90278.

Fresh off of The Police reunion tour, Summers was intent on remaining in the rock world after years of pushing the boundaries with his solo projects.  The two-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was energized to record again and his search for a musical cohort ended when he discovered Rob Giles performing with his band The Rescues at the Troubadour.  Circa Zero is an exciting new chapter for both of them—the name referring to starting with a blank musical slate to create a wholly unique sound, a sound with few if any ties to the past.
