Circa Survive are set to release ‘Imaginary Enemy’ on September 20

SINGLE – IMAGINARY ENEMY: SEPTEMBER 20

ALBUM – BLUE SKY NOISE: JULY 26

UK TOUR – SEPTEMBER

Circa Survive are set to release ‘Imaginary Enemy’ on September 20 through Atlantic Records.  It’s the second single to be taken from their brand new album ‘Blue Sky Noise’, which is out on July 26. The band have also announced a UK tour which kicks off at London’s Scala on September 15.

The band have just wrapped up a UK tour which included a rapturously received sold out show at London’s Underworld last week, this marked their second UK visit this year having been over in April to play two exclusive shows (at Manchester’s Roadhouse and London’s Flowerpot), which received a fantastic 4K review in Kerrang! Magazine.

A remarkably volatile live act, Circa Survive have headlined numerous sold out tours while also sharing stages with an array of independent-minded artists, including My Chemical Romance, Coheed & Cambria, The Gaslight Anthem, Pelican, Rise Against, and countless others.  The band have additionally performed at a wide range of festivals including the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, where their performance prompted Spin to praise frontman Anthony Green’s “crystalline, soprano vocals” which “whip out above the fracas, weaving in and out between Circa’s dueling guitars.”  They are also set to play the prestigious Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee this summer.

Produced by Grammy Award winner David Bottrill (Tool, Muse), ‘Blue Sky Noise’ was released to critical acclaim in the US in April (which included a phenomenal 4.5/5 review in Alternative Press – they also graced the cover), it debuted at number 11 on the Billboard top 200 and went straight in at number one on both the Alternative album chart and Vinyl album chart.

The Pennsylvanian quintet formed in 2004 and unleashed their acclaimed debut, ‘Juturna’ the following year.  The album – coupled with the band’s relentless touring – saw the birth of a fervent fan following, one which would catapult 2007’s sophomore release, ‘On Letting Go’ to a Top 25 chart debut on the Billboard top 200.
