Circa Survive Tour Schedule
For almost a decade one of the premiere names in indie rock and emo has been Circa
Survive. Originally formed in Philadelphia, Circa Survive quickly made a name for themselves on the local scene and eventually
started gaining attention from indie rockers across the nation. Their high energy live performances and powerful sound has
helped Circa Survive stand out from the pack of alternative and post hardcore acts. Four albums into their career the band
appears poised for something big and now is the time to see them as they head out on tour at the peak of their powers.
Survive have an exciting Los Angeles date lined up on December 28th at Shrine Expo Hall. The perfect way to round out the
year would be spending one of the last nights of 2013 with one of the most talented indie rock bands in the world. Anyone
in Southern California will definitely be looking forward to making the trip to Shrine Expo Hall for this one. If you can't
make the Los Angeles show, be sure to check back often on StubHub to see when and where Circa Survive will be playing next,
this is one band you definitely have to see live.
About the Band
In 2004, singer Anthony Green was living
in California and playing with the band Saosin when he decided to take a trip back to Philly to visit his girlfriend. On his
way back to California Green thought twice and decided he should stay in Pennsylvania. He quit the band and moved east where
he called up his friend Colin Frangicetto who he had jammed with during his stay in Philadelphia and started to assemble the
rest of the band that would become Circa Survive. The band consists of former members of three different indie rock bands,
Saosin, Taken, and This Day Forward who have all come together to create a sound unlike anything else in modern rock. Is it
prog rock? Emo? Indie rock? Post hardcore? Experimental? Their sound is hard to classify but one thing for sure is that they
create some beautiful and engaging songs that only get better when heard live. They released their debut album Juturna in
2005 and have gone on to release three others: On Letting Go, Blue Sky Noise, and 2012's Violent Waves. The band had a brief
stint with Atlantic Records who released Blue Sky Noise but left the label and self-released Violent Waves.
was a moderately successful indie rock record which rose to number 183 in the Billboard Top 200 and garnered plenty of attention,
but it was their second release, On Letting Go, which was the real breakthrough for Circa Survive. The album debuted at number
24 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold nearly 25,000 copies in its first week. Clearly Circa Survive had made their mark through
touring and with Juturna as well as EPs released between the two full lengths. An independent artist that can make such a
strong showing on the Billboard charts is sure to get the major labels to come calling which is precisely what Atlantic Records
did and they eventually signed the band and released their third album Blue Sky Noise.
have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see the talented group Circa
Survive making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the band members pick up their instruments each
other signalling that they are ready to begin. A hush falls over the crowd as the band busts in to some of their biggest hits,
and plays them all one after another. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night.
The entire venue is drenched in beautiful noise as Circa Survive bring their soaring harmonies and post hardcore sound to
the forefront. You will be wondering if this is the future of country or the future of rock. Either way, you are witnessing
one of the most exciting and fresh bands of the past ten years at the height of their powers, so sit back and enjoy. The high
energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along. If
there is just one concert you attend in the next few months make sure it is Circa Survive.
Survive has toured and performed with some of the biggest names on the emo and indie rock scene including My Chemical Romance,
Coheed and Cambria, Saves the Day, Thrice, Bad Religion, Anberlin, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and many more. Anthony Green, frontman
of Circa Survive, was about to sign a record contract with another band when he began to feel it was not the right band for
him, and with the help of Colin Frangicetto, the two began writing and recording music and recruiting other members.
