Pennsylvania rockers Circa Survive are about to release their new album, The Amulet. The record is something of a rebirth for a band that has experienced turmoil over the past seven years, but it finds them debating the more complex difficulties of life, while also just enjoying the process of making a new record.
As lead singer Anthony Green explains, "It's difficult to think about why you have compulsively hurtful or suicidal thoughts, and dealing with stuff like that is a difficult thing. It's a difficult thing to talk about. I feel like I found a place to talk about it on this record more boldly than I've ever been able to talk about it."
Green says of the recording process, "We are all just going to really have fun. We're not going to think about a single. We are not going to think about a record label. We're just going to make some songs and whatever comes of it, we'll see what happens," and this record came out of it."
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Anthony to discuss the difficulties the band has gone through over the years, what they are looking to do now, and the moments that mean the most to him.
