In their decade-plus career, Circa Survive have continued to challenge themselves and test the boundaries of musical genres. With each album they’ve gone outside their musical comfort zone, jumping between post-rock, psychedelic, prog, post-hardcore and shoegaze, creating a sound that’s uniquely theirs yet has the power to connect with a wide swath of music fans.
Their latest album, Descensus, isn’t just an impressive illustration of Circa Survive’s constantly evolving creativity; it’s a testament to the strong bond the five members share. They’ve experienced career highs and personal lows, but their dedication to each other has never wavered. “We’re just in a really sweet spot in our career where a lot of the hard stuff from the beginning is out of the way, and we’re in this place where we know how to write a Circa song, and we also know how to walk outside of our comfort zone together and enjoy it,” guitarist Colin Frangicetto says. “It just seems like at this point now there’s really nothing to be afraid of.”
