Hailed as a remarkably visceral live act since their foundation, Doylestown, PA's Circa Survive began their career with a genre-bending debut in 2005 entitled Juturna. Written and recorded before the band had ever performed a live show together, Juturna showcased the band's raw energy with "Act Appalled," and future-fans were introduced to Circa Survive through glistening tracks "The Great Golden Baby" and "In Fear and Faith".

In 2007, the band followed-up with an acclaimed sophomore album, On Letting Go, which brought the brand into another realm of success. "The Difference Between Medicine and Poison is in the Dose" and "In The Morning and Amazing" highlighted the band's strength as musicians and songwriters and poised them to be one of the most respected bands in rock music.

Emerging after months of writing sessions and major life experiences, Circa Survive teamed with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, King Crimson) and signed with major label Atlantic Records to release Blue Sky Noise in April 2010. The album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200.

Two years later - with no record label or traditional distribution outlet - the band released Violent Waves, which debuted at #15. Descensus, produced, engineered, and mixed by Will Yip of Studio 4, will be the band's first studio album since signing to Sumerian Records.

Circa Survive is Anthony Green (vocals), Colin Frangicetto (guitar), Brendan Ekstrom (guitar), Nick Beard (bass), Steve Clifford (drums).
