Circa Survive Announce Major Label Release!
Atlantic recording group Circa Survive has announced the upcoming release of their major label debut, “BLUE SKY NOISE.” Produced by three-time Grammy winner David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, King Crimson) and mixed by Rich Costey (Interpol, The Mars Volta, Rage Against The Machine), the highly anticipated collection arrives in stores and at online retailers on April 20th.
To give fans an early taste of what they can expect on the forthcoming album, the Doylestown, PA-based quintet has posted the album track, “Get Out” on their official website, www.CircaSurvive.com. “Get Out” is the first new music unveiled from “BLUE SKY NOISE,” and exclusively available for immediate download when fans preorder the album. A digital copy of “BLUE SKY NOISE” will be delivered one week before the April 20th street date for all preordered albums. Other bonuses include exclusive band merchandise and limited edition items. For complete album preorder details, please visit www.CircaSurvive.com.
To celebrate the release of “BLUE SKY NOISE,” Circa Survive will be heading on cross-country trek supporting Coheed & Cambria. The tour will kick off in Charlotte, NC at The Fillmore Charlotte on April 22nd and continue through a finale in Washington, DC at the 9:30 Club on May 27th (dates below) – tickets go on sale this Saturday, February 20.
The tour with Coheed & Cambria follows a run of shows in March that include a number of headlining dates, marquee performances at the annual South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, topping the bill at The Hoodwink in Anaheim, CA, and a featured slot at The Bamboozle West.
Circa Survive has emerged one of the most visionary and forward-thinking young bands in contemporary rock music today. Founded in 2004, Circa Survive unleashed its acclaimed debut, “JUTURNA,” the following year via Equal Vision Records. The album – coupled with the band’s relentless touring – saw the birth of a fervent fan following, one which would catapult 2007’s sophomore release, “ON LETTING GO,” to a top 30 chart debut on the Billboard 200. A remarkably volatile live act, Circa Survive has headlined numerous sold out tours while also sharing stages with an array of like-minded artists, including My Chemical Romance, Coheed & Cambria, The Gaslight Anthem, Pelican, Rise Against, and countless others. The band has additionally performed at a wide range of festivals including multiple appearances at The Bamboozle and on Vans Warped Tour. What’s more, Circa Survive was among the most well-received acts at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, prompting Spin to praise frontman Anthony Green’s “crystalline, soprano vocals” which “whip out above the fracas, weaving in and out between Circa’s dueling guitars.”
Circa Survive is: Nick Beard (bass), Steve Clifford (drum), Brendan Ekstrom (guitar), Colin Frangicetto (guitar), Anthony Green (vocals).
