“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. In 2007, the band followed-up with an acclaimed sophomore album, On Letting Go, which brought the brand into another realm of success. 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.
