Circa Survive had a huge 2017, releasing their adventurous sixth full length, The Amulet, via Hopeless Records, and stretching their brand of intricately appealing post-hardcore into intense new territory. Now the band are hitting the ground running in 2018 with a North American headlining tour featuring support from Foxing and Hail The Sun.
The Amulet finds Circa Survive continuing to push their unconventional sound, proving exactly why they’re still one of alternative’s most exhilarating bands. The album is unapologetically ambitious with its intricate guitars, growling bass, and explosive drumming, all permeated by Anthony Green’s singularly dynamic voice. Lyrically The Amulet is fueled by an inextricable combination of the personal and political. Green explores the idea of seeking comfort in unhealthy places and the desperate need to seek the truth even when it’s challenging, applying this sentiment to his personal life just as pointedly as to the current uneasy zeitgeist, capturing the sense of fear and discontent that permeates our current social and political climates.
