Circa Survive Hit Buffalo This Week

Not many singers can do what Circa Survive’s Anthony Green can do. That is, hit those powerfully high notes on songs like “Act Appalled” from the band’s debut record, Juturna, or “Your Friends Are Gone,” from the follow-up, On Letting Go. What makes his incredible vocal talents even more mesmerizing is the manner in which the 29-year-old singer drifts about the stage, through the resonating chords of the band’s ethereal, indie-hard rock, hypnotizing fans as they lose themselves in the band’s haunting melodies. After leaving like-minded, post-hardcore band Saosin to form Circa Survive, Green recruited guitarists Colin Frangicetto—who recently released a solo album under the name Psychic Babble —and Brendan Ekstrom from the depths of the Philadelphia hardcore scene, who in turn found bassist Nick Beard and drummer Steve Clifford to round out the band’s driving rhythm section. Seven years after their formation the band have announced that they have completed writing their yet-to-be-titled fourth full-length studio album, the follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed Blue Sky Noise. Don’t miss Circa Survive when they come to the Town Ballroom on Saturday (Oct 22) with special guests Maps and Atlases. —cory perla
