Circa Survive Announce New Album
Alternative rockers Circa Survive are exploring brand new territory with their sixth full-length release, The Amulet. Due out September 22nd via Hopeless Records, the band have celebrated the news by dropping a new music video for its first single, 'Lustration'.
The track and its accompanying visuals are the perfect example of the bands ability to blend massively ambitious sounds and ideas with an immediacy not often found in music this progressive. The band have traded in big intricate riffs and concepts in order to find the balance between grand scope and accessibility.
Vocalist Anthony Green says "When we were writing ‘Lustration’ there was an immediate feeling that it needed to be the first song on the album and the first song that people heard. It centers the album around the themes of life, death, and rebirth, and we wanted the video and artwork to carry that theme as well. The band has changed a lot, our personal lives have changed a lot, and the video sort of symbolizes those changes you go through—as a band, as a person, in relationships—that necessary struggle you experience when you’re trying to embrace something new.”
The Amulet is due out September 22nd via Hopeless Records.
