Artist of the Day: Circa Survive
The band decided to record and produce the album completely by themselves, even going as far as to release it using their own funds. Focusing on the energy found during their live shows, the band hopes to imbue a new vibe to their music. And so far, the album looks to be shaping up to that vision. More importantly is the new direction and willingness to experiment. Violent Waves is easily the most experimental the band has sounded, and perhaps the least "Circa" sounding thing they have done. Surprisingly this is absolutely perfect, as is sounds stunningly fresh.
Only time will tell if Circa Survive have made the right choice in their new endeavors. Be sure to check out Violent Waves on August 28th to see how things pan out.
