Exactly. That’s a perfect way to put it. All the while, we were still talking to Anthony off and on, but not as seriously. It wasn’t a, “Hey, I’ll rejoin the band” type thing. It was, “Why don’t I just sing on a couple of songs.” One of the Tilian songs got leaked somehow. We got hit up by Anthony because he thought we were going to do some stuff. We were all like, “Well, we weren’t planning on working with Tilian, but it just happened.” So, needless to say, we kind of split things off with Tilian, but we didn’t do it in a good way. The relationship kind of dissolved more passively than we hoped. We didn’t explain anything to him, we just waited until it fizzled out.
Chris was truly great to talk with. The most interesting parts of the interview to me were: Talks started in 2010, the band is truly proud of their history, and that new music with Anthony (or anyone) may never come, and that could partially be because of Circa.
"It’s somewhat ironic that essentially Circa started because he flew home and jammed on a few demos with Colin and decided to leave because of those demos. It was a little ironic to have it be in the opposite position. We didn’t think of it in any bad blood or revengeful tactics. It’s just funny. Regardless, at the end of the day, the reality is that we’re all friends. There is no conflict between us. We realized at one point that we were accomplishing a lot without Anthony on vocals and people responded to our songs with Cove in a completely different way. We didn’t necessarily need fans of the white album to be fans of our self-titled album. There was some crossover, but the conflict between each side of the fence worked to our advantage."

And I guess they'd make the EP songs a bit longer? Either way: Someone film it or give me craploads of money so I can afford to go.
