Breaking Circus was a Minneapolis-area postpunk band from the 1980s. The band was based in Minneapolis, but actually formed in the Chicago area. For their first gig Breaking Circus had a double debut with Silent Language at the Cubby Bear on Saturday, July 2, 1983.

Led by Steve Björklund, Breaking Circus also initially included John Lundin and Bruce Lange. Breaking Circus signed to Homestead Records for their first release, The Very Long Fuse.

In 1986, Bjorklund moved to Minneapolis and began working with Rifle Sport. The band released Ice Machine and Smokers' Paradise in 1987, and broke up the following year.
