Circa Survive released their brand-new EP, A Dream About Love, via Rise Records [AVAILABLE HERE]. Alongside the release, the band also shared a visualizer for the track “Sleep Well,” featuring time-lapse footage of the EP art being created by longtime collaborator, Esao Andrews: WATCH HERE.
Produced by Will Yip (Turnstile, Quicksand, Turnover), the single and EP are a sonic departure for the group as they continue to push their own boundaries. Earlier this month, the band shared the EP’s emotive first single, “Imposter Syndrome.” BrooklynVegan wrote, “[‘Imposter Syndrome’] starts out in more atmospheric, ethereal territory than we usually hear from this band, before turning into a crashing rock song that sounds like trademark Circa Survive,” calling it “a great mix of the old and the new.”
A Dream About Love is the band’s first project since their 2017 album, The Amulet, which debuted at #16 on the Billboard 200. Substream wrote that with the album, “Circa Survive secure a place in modern rock history,” while Alt Press said that “their great, signature mix of progressive rock and 2000s spacey post-hardcore influence[…]results in interesting, exploratory guitars and colorfully decorated atmospheres.” Across their dynamic catalog of releases, Circa Survive have sold over 785k total consumption albums to date in the U.S., inclusive of 214 million streams.
Up next, Circa Survive will perform at Chain Fest in Irvine, CA tomorrow, October 23, before embarking on a 2022 North American headline tour. The run kicks off January 7 and will take the band from coast to coast, including an already sold-out show at Brooklyn Steel on February 27, and concluding with back-to-back sold-out hometown shows in Philadelphia, PA on March 4 and 5.
