Prime Circle has released a deluxe edition of their acclaimed 2014 album Let the Night In, that coincided with their European tour that included festival appearances alongside Iron Maiden, Garbage, Slayer and Iggy Pop. Let the night in – Deluxe Edition is the band’s first official European release, and went on sale globally on Friday, 13 May 2016 ahead of their multi-date tour of Germany and Austria. It features the 13 tracks from the two-time South African Music Award-winning album Let the Night In, including the singles Gone and Doors, as well as four new original songs and a live, unplugged version of the title track, Let the Night In. The first single, Ghosts, was released on radio on 4 April 2016. The release of the 18-track Let the Night In – Deluxe Edition sees a further progression of the band’s ever-evolving rock sound, which has ventured into bold new places since Prime Circle was formed 15 years ago. “The album marked a change of style for the band, and the extra tracks add a little more grit,” says Learmonth. “They are certainly not B-sides – they take the album to another level.” Fans who already own the Let the Night In album have the option to purchase the individual new tracks online, but Learmonth says the principal aim of the deluxe edition is to make a strong impression on the European market. The band has been making steady inroads on the European continent, touring there regularly over the past few years.
