About the artist
Philadelphia's Circa Survive were formed by former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green with guitarist Colin Frangicetto -- both of them veterans of the local emo and hardcore scenes looking to indulge in the rule-breaking freedom of the neo-progressive movement of the mid-2000s. After Green and Frangicetto discovered likeminded bandmates in second guitarist Brendan Ekstrom, bassist Nick Beard, and drummer Steve Clifford, Circa Survive recorded their debut album, Juturna (named after a Roman goddess), for Equal Vision Records in 2005. A spot on the 2007 Coachella festival led into the late May release of Circa Survive's follow-up, On Letting Go. The band eventually released its third album, Blue Sky Noise on Atlantic Records in 2010. Since then the band has chosen to self-release their fourth album "Violent Waves" on August 28, 2012.
