Last week I met up with Colin Frangicetto to talk about music and art. I began writing what was supposed to be last week's column, but other factors in my life got in the way, and I returned to it this week. At the same time, discussion brewed again about Buzzmedia "buying up all the punk stock" or whatever, and it just sort of hit me about how much we complain about the price of art and our trades versus the creation of it. You can read my very long rant on the subject here. This week I have one question for you: How much of your time, money and effort have you put into something you loved for more than just the return? Take this weekend to make like The Hold Steady, and try to stay...
Colin Frangicetto and Circa Survive wish to thank everyone for their support of the new record, Violent Waves, which is out today. This past weekend he opened up about the early leak of the record and wanted to share his thoughts.
O'Brother will release the Basement Window EP on September 18th digitally with a vinyl release to follow on October 30th. They're also going out on the road with Circa Survive, Touché Amoré and Balance & Composure this fall. EP and tour info can be seen in the replies.
At last night's CD release show for Circa Survive's new album, Violent Waves, the band performed "The Lottery" with Geoff Rickly of Thursday. You can watch the video in the replies. Don't forget you can stream and pre-order the new album on the band's website as well.
Colin Frangicetto (Circa Survive,Psychic Babble) recently had his first big art show, To Battle, To Bed. Pictures from the show can be seen here. One of the prints from the show is available for purchase here. A statement from Frangicetto can be read in the replies.
If it isn't making dollars, then it isn't making sense. Tell that to Circa Survive who, this week, announced they would be self-releasing their upcoming album, Violent Waves. The band posted two limited pre-orders that gave some of us a double take on the price. Well, both those bundles are now sold out. Going along with my Thursday Discussion yesterday, I've given thought to how we value music and what we're willing to pay on a spectrum of what we have to have to, "I could jam that for $1 and not feel guilty about stealing it." My thoughts are here.
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.
Circa Survive played a few new songs for Radio 104.5's (Philadelphia) "Live at 5" series yesterday. They said that news about their new album, including a release date, will be released within the next two weeks.
In a new interview, Anthony Green confirmed Circa Survive would be recording their new album after Thanksgiving, the release of his next solo album and a third solo album, a solo tour, his leaving labels for good, The Sound Of Animals Fighting, and more.
