The band comment: “After the last year touring in Europe with Skunk Anansie and Frank Turner, finishing our new album and dropping some new music, we’re massively excited about touring the UK in March in support of our new album Making Circles of Our Own, to be released into the world 17th February. We honestly can’t wait to play these new songs live, see you at the shows!”

Pre-order the record here:

As the music industry fights to return from the brink, New Pagans abandon chaos for a brief moment, in search of hope. Making Circles of Our Own is a glorious listen, incisive, inspiring, and uplifting. Ultimately, the album details the journey to self-assurance, deftly led by singer and wordsmith Lyndsey Mcdougall, whose transportive lyrics demand instant repeat listens. 

New Pagans‘ critically acclaimed debut album, The Seed The Vessel The Roots and All was a self-reflective and self-critical release. Instead, Making Circles of Our Own is more poised, curious and outward-looking, but not without its own moments of angry power. Focusing on the societal limits placed on age and gender, the album is a strong statement of intent from the group. 

Recalling elements of PixiesThe Xcerts and MuncieGirlsMaking Circles of Our Own was recorded in the Glens of Antrim in Ireland by the band, and self-produced. Following their European tour with Skunk Anansie earlier this year, NewPagans then toured with English folk-punk heroes Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls on four dates across Germany. 

2023 follows a stellar two years for New Pagans, following their globally-critically acclaimed debut The Seed, The Vessel, The Roots and All (March 2021, Big Scary Monsters). Strong support from Stereogum, Kerrang!, The Independent, NPR and more helped mark the Irish group as a band to sit up and notice.

Lyndsey McDougall – Vocals
Cahir O’Doherty – Guitar and vocals
Claire Miskimmin – Bass guitar
