Circa Survive is an alternative rock band consisting of former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green and members of the now-defunctThis Day Forward, including guitarists Brendan Ekstrom and Colin Frangicetto. Compared to the sound of Green’s formergroup,the music of Circa Survive taps a different musical influence for Green, who cites Paul Simon, dredg, and Björk amonglater artists who have more influence on his vocal stylings in Circa Survive which are comparatively less aggressive, as well ashis songwriting. After going back to his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA in 2004 for a dental appointment, Anthony Green wentback to the airport to return to California and his Saosin mates. However, he suddenly had an epiphany - that despite thefact that Saosin was close to breaking out, he knew he would be miserable if he returned. To him, Saosin was "a girl thatyou had great sex with, yet had little in common with", as Green himself affectionately said. He returned to ColinFrangicetto, a friend who he had "jammed" with during his stay,and they decided to begin recording and recruiting. Thus,CircaSurvive was born. Colin Frangicetto and Anthony Green, with full support from Equal Vision Records, then recruited Brendan Ekstrom. Ekstromhad been Frangicetto’s bandmate in This Day Forward. Both Ekstrom and Frangicetto had toured with Taken during their ThisDay Forward days, and procured Nick Beard,previous bassist of Taken, as Circa Survive’s next member. The band met SteveClifford through Vadim Taver of the band Marigold; "[Steve] jammed with us for a week and from there it was on", saysFrangicetto. To date, Circa Survive has released two versions of the song 'Handshakes at Sunrise' on two different 2004 sampler discsfrom Equal Vision Records, as well as a 2005 limited edition tour EP called The Inuit Sessions. A full length album,Juturna, was released April 19th,2005.
