Release Info: H.P. Lovecraft meets Devo on ATAXIA, Circus Devils' new collection of moonshine revelries and musical trips by torchlight into the mist-shrouded fields and forests of Ohio (aka: land of mystery). Robert Pollard and the Tobias brothers treat us to an intoxicating blend of jagged, insistent rock and uneasy lullabies.

Formed in Ohio in 2001 by Robert Pollard (Guided by Voices), Circus Devils creates albums rich in atmosphere and imagery, filled with ferocity and gentleness. Their previous album, Sgt. Disco, was released on Ipecac Recordings in 2007. Ataxia will be their 6th release.

Bob's collage used for the album cover was featured in Bob's EAT magazine, Issue 4.

Note: detailed album and track credits provided by Todd Tobias.
