Quick gold status for Prime Circle

2010-10-02 00:00

IN 11 days, South African rock band Prime Circle has attained Gold status with the group’s fourth studio album Jekyll & Hyde.

The album has sold more than 20 000 units, which has been aided by the band’s single Breathing, which has topped the charts of a number of radio stations.

In reacting to the news, Prime Circle’s frontman Ross Learmonth again paid tribute to the band’s supporters.

“We’ve been in this business for close on 10 years and it’s because of the people who buy our music that we are able to keep doing what we love best — and that is making music,” Learmonth said.

Jekyll & Hyde was recorded by Prime Circle in Cape Town with Theo Crous, and features songwriting by all members of the band. It was mixed by Kevin Shirley in Los Angeles and mastered by George Marino, senior mastering engineer at Sterling Sound in New York.

Prime Circle will be performing in Pietermaritzburg on October 29 at the Golden Horse Casino. Tickets are R120 and are available at the Big Beat shop in Parklane Centre.
