Circuit Theory is no longer
So I went ahead and updated this Circuit Theory website with the template I built for Trianide. It deserved some attention and the old Circuit Theory site was so outdated, something needed to be done.
Anyhow, it’s been forever and no one’s doing anything except Tom. Tom has a new band and it’s going very well. He’s got a whole new crew and an all new sound. Definitely not your father’s Circuit Theory. But if you like Tom and you like his style, don’t miss checking out Super Terrific Action Team (STAT). It’s full-on metal with an extra dash of comic relief.
Well we tried very hard to get Trianide off the ground, but life got in the way and there’s nothing happening with any of us at this point in time. There’s also no immediately plans, either.
In Circuit Theory news, our EP will be on iTunes & Amazon until February 2012. After that, you’ll only be able to purchase from our newly launched Bandcamp page: http://circuittheory.bandcamp.com. Thanks for your continued interest!
Circuit Theory is on indefinite hiatus. Who knows what the future may hold, but in the meantime, Tom (guitarist) and myself, Coz (singer) would like to direct you to www.trianidemusic.com where we are currently putting together new music with new people. The site is not yet filled with any content but it will be in the coming months (we hope). We’re thankful for your support and patience throughout our time with Circuit Theory and hope to see you out at Trianide shows whenever they begin, which we hope will be by late Winter/early Spring 2011.
Also, even though we’re no longer selling the CD packages, shirts, stickers, or any other merchandise, our EP “Amnesia” is still available for purchase from iTunes and other MP3 retailers. Check the store page!
This is Coz, singer of Circuit Theory.
Tom (guitarist) and I are attempting to form a new musical project. But we’re looking for a talented drummer.
DO YOU KNOW ONE? ARE YOU ONE?
Perhaps you are one and you’re not satisfied with your current situation!
He or she should at least fit the following criteria:
1. Be able to practice twice a week in Brooklawn, NJ.
2. Be at least 21 years old.
3. Be able to keep a beat.
The musical style would be a mix of Circuit Theory’s sound and the sounds found here: http://www.myspace.com/lostwithin1
Any further questions the interested party may have can be answered by sending their queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auditions would begin occurring ASAP.
Thanks for your time and for any help you can provide us in finding that certain special someone.
We told you that if you were a fan, you’d regret not coming out to see us at The Cherrywood this past Friday! Those who were there got to see something special. It was our last show. Or, at least it was our last one played as you currently know us.
We’re not yet sure if the name will carry on with one of us, or if it’ll be buried, but we are all in support of each other and will be supporting our individual plans as musicians by updating YOU fine folks through our Myspace account. So “STAY TUNED” to hear the future of Circuit Theory and our band member’s future endeavors.
Major thanks to YOU for YOUR support thus far. You’ll be hearing from us again soon, don’t worry. Sign up on our mailing list, too, to ensure you get our updates.
First off, we apologize, but all members of the Circuit Theory Forums must sign up again.
There was a glitch in the system and it had to be deleted and built back up from scratch. So let’s start clean again, shall we?
In other news, we are recording this weekend. Just one song – and it will most likely be our new one which debuted at The Pennant back on 8/9. We’re looking forward to letting the rest of the world know what type of sound we’re maturing into. We hope you’ll find it more accessible with more drive behind it.
This month we modeled for Jodi Samsel so we could get some new promo shots with Jonny. We think they turned out great! What do you think?
Check them out at the newly updated Circuit Theory Galleries.
We also are going to attempt to take the next few months off so we can focus better on writing new material as well as finish up the songs we’re working on. We may even get to record a song or two during the break, too.
So, barring any unforeseen circumstances, we’ll see you again in a few months with some very catchy tunes in hand. Hope you’ll be out to hear them.
94WYSP played our song “Mother, May I” tonight on Tommy Conwell’s Loud & Local show with some high praise by Tommy himself.
So now that WYSP has our CD, it would be a great honor if you began to request the song be played more.
“But Mr. Circuit Theory Band, how do I do that?”
I’m glad you asked!
You can request a song online HERE:
Or you can call one of the request lines at any time of the day.
Or text them at WYSP1 (99771)
Hey, just because we’re a local band doesn’t mean we can’t get into the rotation!
If you feel we deserve it, the power is in your hands.
P.S. Our Troc show tickets are no longer available for online ordering. If you still haven’t gotten yours, please contact us ASAP to arrange a personal meeting with us between now and Wednesday to get yours.
See you May 3rd!!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to introduce you to a photo of our new bassist, Jonny Croce (formerly of Complaint Department)!
You can meet The REAL Jonny at our next show. It’s the big one at The Trocadero on May 3rd. To attend, you must purchase tickets from us in advance by using our secure Circuit Theory Store, or by contacting us individually so we can make other arrangements.
Tickets are already beginning to sell, so get yours now, before time runs out!
We’re giving away tickets to our Trocadero show on May 3rd!

If you’ve had your radios tuned to 94WYSP over the last couple days, you may have heard our ad for this Thursday’s show at Levy’s Comedy Club featuring music by us, Undercast, Enstride, and Nymphonixxx plus comedy by Randy Latini, Danny Ozark, Benny Michaels, and Brendan Kennedy.
Tomorrow morning on The KiddChris Show *might* be Danielle, representing the band Nymphonixxx being exploited to plug this show even more. Tune to 94.1 in Philly or stream from www.94wysp.com
Visit our calendar for all the details of the show.
And stay tuned… in a week or so, we’ll be announcing the news concerning our new bassist!
We’ve finally made and released our commercial for Amnesia.
Check it out at our YouTube page!
As with all YouTube vids, it’s embeddable into YOUR blogs and profile pages.
Just a quick note to anyone planning on going to see us in Frenchtown: Don’t.
None of the bands can make it there due to weather. Sorry!
Circuit Theory has secured a temporary bassist. Meet Bert Bigler!
We’ve been informed that Bert cannot be our full-time bassist as originally planned. So we’re still looking for a full-timer. Meanwhile, Bert will be taking care of the upcoming shows we have in February.
A Message from Sean (the bassist)
The end of last year started to pick up quite nicely with the release of the EP, and the band starting to get back into performing live, expanding the areas of shows and continuing momentum. Now that the new year is under way and the with trying to keep up the momentum, there also comes new ideas, challenges, and changes.
With that said, Circuit Theory and I are parting ways. Now I know what you are saying to yourself, “Who’s the bassist? Oh yeah, the quiet one. Who cares he’s the easiest one to replace.” And you’re correct, in this case, I am the easiest to replace, so it shouldn’t be very difficult for them to find someone new and most likely better. I will still be making music, whether or not it gets out to the public, is a different story, and this also affords me more time for other interests that have been pushed off. I don’t have a MySpace page, so in any odd event that someone wants to contact me and keep up to date with what I’m doing, you’re more or less out of luck along those lines. Though, if you look hard enough, you may find me. However, I still do work with Rick, so if you’re nice, he might be gracious enough to pass anything along to me. The past couple years have been a fun and exciting experience. I thank everyone for their support and the great people and bands I’ve met along the way. It means more than you can imagine, thank you.
As mentioned, Sean Mathes is no longer the bassist of Circuit Theory. We’ll still be playing the 3 shows currently scheduled for February 15th, 20th, and 22nd, so we are hopeful you will still come out and support us. We’re actively seeking a replacement bassist and look forward to a very speedy recovery back to the scene. We’ll be sure to keep you all updated. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us through this website or Myspace. Thank you very much.
Just wanted to let you know we’ve updated our Circuit Theory Galleries. Pics from the last number of shows have been added, including the recent CD Release Party. We’re still waiting to receive the videos from that night, but as soon as we do, they’ll be added to our YouTube page (which automatically is updated in the Video section of this site.)
By the way…
Take note! We’re continually adding new shows to the calendar. Sign up on the mailing list to ensure you’re notified of updates!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Just in time for Black Friday, we’ve opened up The Circuit Theory Store again where you can, for the first time, purchase Amnesia as well as our new shirt and more!
In today’s print & online versions of Dan Gross’s featured column in The Philadelphia Daily News, Dan talks about our special guest Huggy hosting our CD Release Party on Friday.
Huggy hosts record release
Former 94 WYSP DJ Huggy of the Matt & Huggy Show is hosting a CD-release party for Circuit Theory at the Cherrywood (1460 Blackwood-Clementon) in Clementon, N.J., at 9 p.m. tomorrow. To hear Circuit Theory, visit circuittheorymusic.com.
Circuit Theory is happy to announce they will be a guest on The Jim Santora Show next Wednesday night, November 14th.
In a special 2-hour episode, Jim Santora spends some time with Kathy Coleman (aka Holly Marshall from TV’s Land Of The Lost) and former pro wrestler champion “Natureboy” Buddy Landel before talking with members of Circuit Theory. Tune in at 9pm on Wednesday, November 14th
We believe the show will be broadcast live and will sometimes accept phonecalls. Feel free to call in and express your love for Circuit Theory’s music! 🙂
(Click here for the show’s page)
This appearance comes just 2 days before our big CD Release Party happening at The Cherrywood Rock Club. We’ve got some awesome bands to help us entertain you, along with plenty of new, cool merchandise (including the CD) for you to buy. The party will be hosted by Philly’s own Huggy from The Matt & Huggy radio show.
Come on out — we’ve put enough money into this one to ensure you have an awesome time.
Well, we’ve successfully shaken the rust off over the last 4 days. Thank you to everyone who came out to see us at Mojo13 and PhilaFunk Live.
We’ve already begun filling up the month of November (including the date of our much anticipated CD Release Party) and we’ll continue to add dates as soon as we can. If you haven’t already done so, you should sign up for our mailing list/newsletter. It’s real professional looking! See?
Feel free to contact us for booking. We’re accepting late November, early December, all of January and beyond right now. Hope to see you soon!
Thanks for visiting the brand new circuittheorymusic.com. Along with the re-launch of the site, it’s officially marking a re-launch of the band. We’ll be making every effort we can to continually play live shows and spread ourselves out as much as possible. We’ll need every bit of help we can get, though, so if you can visit the fan area and utilize some of the banners, AIM icons, widgets, and anything else you can do to help promote us, that would be a great start.
We hope you enjoy this new design and find it a comfortable and convenient place to visit and get information about us.
Also, for those who thought the day would never come, we have a date scheduled for our CD Release Party (sort of… It will be in November)! Check out the calendar page and take note. More info to come.
A brand new website design is almost done and will be debuting in the coming weeks. It should make for a very convenient and pleasing experience for those checking us out.
The website is just one of many new things we’re coming very close to unleashing. Be sure to keep your hand close to the tracks because the train is a-comin’!
Hey folks! You should know our Myspace page has been completely redesigned to match our EP artwork. This website you’re looking at right now is currently being re-designed as well. It’s looking amazing!
We’ve posted “ACCIDENT” on Myspace as well. This is the first new song from the EP! Keep checking back there because we will be adding more songs as the weeks go by and we get closer to the release date.
If you’d like to read up on why we’ve been so quiet for so long, check out our blog.
Check out the Circuit Theory store!
We’ve got tickets available for our upcoming show at The Trocadero on March 23rd and we’ve added a t-shirt to our store so you can joyously wear your shirt at the show.
This might be our last show for a little while as we prepare to finish up our long-awaited EP and focus on writing fresh, new material. So if you can make it out, we strongly recommend it.
Also, the pictures from our last show at The Troc have been added to the Circuit Theory galleries. Enjoy!
We’ve been included on a compilation CD, officially making us have a real discography. So… there’s now a “discography” section on the website. More to come!
We’ve added a new show! Check the calendar.
Also, you have the option of buying tickets through us directly using Paypal. These tickets are available through Ticketmaster but they will of course be hitting you with a bunch of additional fees. Through us, you will pay face value, plus a mere $1 “restore” fee, securely.
Tickets are on sale now. We will have to stop accepting sales on 2/10 to ensure your tickets are delivered on time. So get them quick!
Our first song from the upcoming, untitled EP has been released! It’s called “Mother, May I” and we hope you like it. Currently, it’s on our Myspace but it should be available here in our media section within the next few days. Check it out!
Don’t forget to catch us at The Troc this Friday night. Check the calendar page for the latest on our set time (it may change last minute due to a band cancellation, so get there at 8:30pm to ensure you get to see us).
We will have a new song here and on Myspace within the next few days. This is the first recording to come from our upcoming yet-to-be-titled E.P. We’re very exciting to see what you all have to say about it.
See you Friday!
Take a look on our media page and you’ll notice we’ve added some live video from our most recent show at The Rusty Nail in Ardmore, PA. Hope you enjoy!
If you do enjoy it and you’d like to see more, we will be at The Trio Tavern this Saturday in Williamstown, NJ. Check the calendar page for all the details.
We’ve been asked to fill an empty slot this Saturday night at The Rusty Nail in Ardmore, PA. Show starts at 9pm and we should be taking the stage at 11pm. All details are on our calendar page. Hope to see you there!
You’ll also notice that we’ve added another date for 9/9.
In other news, all the drum tracks are done for our EP. Guitars are mid-way through and we’ll be working on the rest over the next few weeks but we can’t yet give any tentative release date, so keep checking back!
Thanks to all who came out (or attempted to come out) to the show last Thursday. We really appreciate it and hope to see you at our next gig which we will be announcing shortly.
Thanks to Lisa and Mike, we’ve got some pictures to share with you from our show. You can find them in the media section by launching the photo album. Or just click here.
We’ve begun the next phase of growth this weekend, too. Recording our first E.P.
Rick is laying down drum tracks now and we hope to have all recording completed over the next few weekends. You can be alerted of future news updates by joining our mailing list (see: right-side of home page).
See you soon!
If you happened to be listening to The Kidd Chris Show on 8/4/06 at about 6pm, you would have heard Coz call in and stumble over his words as he is caught off-guard when guest-comedian Geno Bisconte tried to give him an opportunity to plug the upcoming show. If you missed it, you can click here to listen. (much thanks to Sugewhite for providing the audio and Geno for thinking of us)
Which reminds me… to remind you… THIS THURSDAY is the show! Come on. You know you can’t miss this one. Be at Rex’s by 9pm.
We’d also like to assure you that we will be recording our EP over the next few weekends. There will be approximately 5 songs recorded so keep your ears peeled (but don’t let yourself get an infection). We’ll have some up here and on Myspace as soon as we can.
We’ve added a special little prize in our Media section for you. Under the sub-section of Multimedia, you can download the official Cynical Optimist ringtone! If your phone is internet-ready and MP3-enabled, you can download the ringtone to your phone which, by the way, is a great way to show your friends you have great taste in music.
We’ve been confirmed to play at Rex’s Bar in West Chester, PA on August 17th. Doors open at 9 and we go on at 9:30. Stick around after our set to catch Reading-based “Call me If You Die” fronted by Pam Baldwin (Coz’s cousin).
We’re all extremely excited about finally getting out and playing live. This being our first show, we need all the support we can get so we hope to see everyone out there!
The website is officially launched! We hope you like it!
Check out our myspace. We recently put up a LIMITED TIME ONLY clip of us playing in our rehearsal space. The song is called “Accident” which we hope will be on our upcoming EP due out by September.
