Biography

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA (2004 – present)

Circa Survive is an 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.

After going back to his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA in 2004 for a dental appointment, Anthony Green went back to the airport to return to California and his Saosin mates. However, he suddenly had an epiphany - that despite the fact that Saosin was close to breaking out, he knew he would be miserable if he returned. To him, Saosin was “a girl that you had great sex with, yet had little in common with,” as Green himself affectionately said. 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. 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; ” jammed with us for a week and from there it was on,” says Frangicetto.
