About

Circa Survive, the progressive 5-piece rock band from Doylestown, Pennsylvania self-produced their fourth album Violent Waves at Studio 4 in suburban Philadelphia. For the release, the band developed a new method of self-releasing their records, having previously recorded for Equal Vision and Atlantic Records and sold a half-million albums in the process. Circa Survive has always prided themselves on the extraordinary relationship they have with their fans - this new release model allows them to push the self-release paradigm one step further.

“Collectively we've run the gamut from working with really small DIY labels to big indies all the way to a major label," noted guitarist Colin Frangicetto. “The band has learned a ton from each of those experiences and at this point feel confident in our ability to successfully produce, release and promote a record on our own. There's really nothing more satisfying to us then bringing our vision to the world in this way.”

Hailed as a remarkably visceral live act since their foundation, Circa Survive began their career with a genre-bending debut in 2005 entitled Juturna. Written and recorded before the band had ever performed a live show together, Juturna showcased the band’s raw energy with “Act Appalled,” and future-fans were introduced to Circa Survive through glistening tracks “The Great Golden Baby” and “In Fear and Faith.”

In 2007, the band followed-up with an acclaimed sophomore album, On Letting Go, which brought the brand into another realm of success. “The Difference Between Medicine and Poison is in the Dose” and “In The Morning and Amazing” highlighted the band’s strength as musicians and songwriters and poised them to be one of the most respected bands in rock music.

After nearly two years of non-stop touring with Coheed and Cambria, Thrice, and more including jaw-dropping performances at such varied music festivals as Coachella and Bamboozle, the band needed a much-deserved break.

Emerging after months of writing sessions and major life experiences, Circa Survive teamed with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, King Crimson) and signed with major label Atlantic Records to release Blue Sky Noise in April 2010. The album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200.

Two years later - with no record label or traditional distribution outlet - Violent Waves debuted at #15. Charged with the lead track “Birth of the Economic Hit Man” clocking in at over 7-minutes in length, vocalist Anthony Green proclaims “we’ve become everything we criticize” shunning the safe and traditional and introducing fans to the next chapter of Circa Survive history. The statement is pretty clear — Circa Survive are showing no signs of slowing down, and with their rabid core fanbase willing to follow them into the unknown... anything is possible.

Circa Survive is: Anthony Green (vocals), Colin Frangicetto (guitar), Brendan Ekstrom (guitar), Nick Beard (bass), Steve Clifford (drums).
