Circle The Earth Enter the Mediabase Top 40 Activator Chart at #65* with their Current Single, “Dead – Remix”

Band to Perform at an Exclusive Industry Showcase at  SIR Studios in Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at 6:30 pm


Los Angeles, CA- February, 2024– Circle The Earth is a multicultural band that creates modern rock sounds, offering cutting-edge new-wave beats that evoke energy and emotion. Their new single, “Maniac on Mute,” will be available on February 21, 2024.

Formed by Mike McBay (bass guitar) in 2018, Circle the Earth rounded out their lineup by adding: Kazuki Tokaji from Japan, who lights up the stage on guitar; Sandro Feliciano from Brazil on drums, Sandy Chao from Taiwan on keyboard and Khadia (vocals). Mike and Khadia are from America. Together, the group offers powerful melodic songs that deliver hard, groove-filled licks that showcase memorable lyrics.

Mike McBay’s story is one of grit and determination. A trained medical doctor, he lost his license after succumbing to drug addiction. His parents, who were steeped in academia, shaped his early years. His parents were science department chairs at Atlanta University (now Clark Atlanta University), a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in Georgia. Mike’s youth was marked by his parents’ demands to succeed and Mike’s dreams of making music. His life led to addiction, which he overcame 13 years ago. “Music was my escape while fighting racism in school and my parents’ academic demands,” says Mike.

Circle the Earth’s new single, “Maniac on Mute,” will be released via Symphonic Distribution on February 21, 2024. The single was written by acclaimed songwriter Lauren Christy and produced by Erik Ron. The new track and forthcoming album were recorded at Grey Area Studios in Los Angeles, CA, in December 2023.

“Maniac on Mute” is about refusing to let your past trauma accompany you into your future. “Who you are now is not who you used to be. The deal to silence yourself is an effort to bury the past,” says Ms. Christy.

The group’s forthright attitude on stage and off is about ethnic inclusion, cultural understanding, international cooperation, personal integrity, and spiritual awareness. “Music brings people together. It offers me hope on a daily basis. The group represents life as positive and uplifting as I continue on my journey to stay healthy,” says Mike.

Circle The Earth’s new song, “Maniac on Mute,” will help heal your trauma through Kazuki Tokaji’s wicked guitar skills and Khadia’s dynamic vocals. Mike Mcbay holds down a steady groove on bass alongside Sandro Feliciano’s banging drums and Sandy Chao’s innovative keys,” adds Lauren Christy.

Circle The Earth’s second single will be released in March 2024, and their full EP will be released in June 2024.
