The Skinny: Circle of Dust have just released their first new track in nearly 20 years, stream the song “Contagion” now! For nearly two decades Circle of Dust has inspired fans and fellow artists of the industrial music scene. Founded by Klayton – who is most well-known for his project Celldweller and owning the independent record label FiXT – Circle of Dust began his experimentation with melding sci-fi inspired industrial and electronic-rock, a sound that he has since become known for mastering.

The debut of “Contagion” comes with the news that Circle of Dust will be re-releasing remastered versions of all five previously released albums, each featuring bonus material, new tracks, and more. This sequence of releases will all happen in 2016, capping off with a completely brand new Circle of Dust album, to be released in December of this year.
