Circa Survive Will Self-Release "Violent...

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (06/25/12)
Circa Survive has announced its new album, Violent Waves, which they will release independently on August 28. You can download a new song called "Suitcase" here - and that link also has preorders, which include a $750 option with handwritten lyrics, limited to 11.
From the BandGreetings All!

We are excited to announce that we have chosen to self-release our 4th album, "Violent Waves" on August 28th.
Over the years we have been on both indie and major record labels. We are thankful for the opportunities we've had with them but it's 2012 and we want to try something we've never done before. We produced this record ourselves. This is raw Circa Juice straight from us to you. We also paid for it with our own money; money that likely came from you buying a ticket or t-shirt over the years. All in all we have never been more deeply involved in every aspect of creating a record.

Starting now you can pre-order "Violent Waves" directly from our website. The digital version will only be $5. We've tried to make it as affordable as possible and we hope you'll help us by spreading the word to your friends and families so we can continue doing what we love. By choosing to download or buy our record straight from us you are choosing to give our band a future and are directly supporting us and our families.

As a band we will always support independent record stores - any store that wants to carry our record is welcome to order it directly from us as well. The record will also be available on iTunes. We're also really excited to announce a US tour in support of the record in the Fall, and two special release shows in Philadelphia August 24th and 25th. All tickets will go on sale this Friday, check your email for pre-sale information which will start on Wednesday. Touche Amore, Balance and Composure and O'brother will be supporting us on the tour. Openers for Philadelphia will be announced soon.

We have always looked at Circa Survive as more than just a band. Above all it's been a relationship between the five of us and you and everyone who has ever been involved in this community we've built together. We believe that this step will bring us even closer. Big thanks to our friend Esao Andrews for once again creating the perfect artwork to match our sounds, and most importantly thanks to you for your endless support.

Infinite Love,

Circa Survive

Dope that they can release it by themselves, and that expensive ass package should bring in some quality dollars so they can do this for another record. Preordered a cheap one.

If you're ever gonna drop almost $1000 on a record, might as well be this package.

That's awesome. I'm gonna wait and see if the CD/t-shirt becomes preorder-able from a UK source so I don't have to deal with shipping costs, otherwise I'll definitely buy the digital copy, at least.

Very interested in this. Those $750 bundles are going to sell out so fast.

Edit: Holy shit $5 for a pre-order of this? It's always cool to see such a well-known band take this route. I'm glad people are starting to cut out the middle man.
