In the past, Circa Survive have released albums on major and indie labels, but for their fourth LP, Violent Waves, the band decided to do things differently. On August 28th, fans will be able to buy the self-released and self-produced Violent Waves directly from the band's website for $5. "By choosing to download our music directly from us, you are choosing to give our band a future and directly supporting us and our families," vocalist Anthony Green wrote in a letter to fans.

Circa Survive will hit the road in support of the album in September (find their tour dates here). Hear Violent Waves in its entirety with this exclusive stream.

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
