History

After going back to his hometown of Philadelphia for a dentist appointment, Anthony Green went to the airport to return to California to work with Saosin. However, while on a layover in Phoenix, he suddenly had an epiphany - despite the fact that Saosin was close to breaking out, he knew he would be miserable if he returned. When asked about his decision to leave Saosin he stated, "I left primarily because I didn't want to sign to a major label in that band," instead wishing to branch away from Saosin's more screamo background.[1] He returned to Colin Frangicetto, a friend who he had "jammed" with during his stay, and they decided to begin recording and recruiting. Thus, Circa Survive was born. Colin Frangicetto and Anthony Green, with full support from Equal Vision Records, then recruited Brendan Ekstrom. Ekstrom had been Frangicetto's bandmate in This Day Forward, which had recently disbanded. Both Ekstrom and Frangicetto had toured with Taken during their This Day Forward days, and procured Nick Beard, previous bassist of Taken, as Circa Survive's next member. The band met Steve Clifford through Vadim Taver of the band Marigold; "Steve jammed with us for a week and from there it was on," says Frangicetto.

Circa Survive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (533 words)
Circa Survive is a progressive band consisting of former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green and members of the now-defunct This Day Forward, including guitarists Brendan Ekstrom and Colin Frangicetto.
Compared to the sound of Green's former group, the music of Circa Survive taps a different musical influence for Green, who cites Paul Simon, dredg, and Björk among later artists who have more influence on his vocal stylings in Circa Survive which are comparatively less aggressive, as well as his songwriting.
Circa Survive has also opened for Mae and Dredg on each of their headlining runs.
Circa Survive: Aversion.com Interview (1396 words)
Its inertia certainly stems from Circa Survive’s roots as a spur-of-the-moment decision.
Most importantly, after being shut out from much of Saosin’s creative process as his ideas diverged from the rest of the band, Circa Survive is a real-life band, a collaborative effort where all its members invest themselves into it.
Circa Survive takes on a much different vibe, building songs that twist, turn and ramble through the breadth of rock’n’roll.
