Circa Survive Return With Headline Tour; Explosive Live Outfit's March Run Includes SXSW Stop; Atlantic Debut Out This Spring

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 28, 2010) - Atlantic recording group Circa Survive has unveiled their first touring plans of the year. The Doylestown, Pennsylvania-based quintet's upcoming run of shows will kick off at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC, on March 11th, with dates continuing through the end of the month (see itinerary below). Tickets will go on sale this Saturday, January 30.

In addition to their headlining tour, Circa Survive will be performing at a number of notable musical gatherings. In mid-March, they'll make the trek to Austin for the annual South By Southwest Music Festival. Later in the month, the band will head to Southern California to headline The Hoodwink at The Grove of Anaheim on March 26th, followed by a high profile set at The Bamboozle West at The Festival Grounds at Angel Stadium on March 27th.

Circa Survive is putting the finishing touches on its label debut, due out later this spring. For their third full length release, the band teamed up with three-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Coheed & Cambria, King Crimson). The album is being mixed by Rich Costey (Muse). More details to be announced shortly.

Circa Survive has emerged one of the most visionary and forward-thinking young bands in contemporary rock music today. Founded in 2004, Circa Survive unleashed its acclaimed debut, "JUTURNA," the following year via Equal Vision Records. The album -- coupled with the band's relentless touring -- saw the birth of a fervent fan following, one which would catapult 2007's sophomore release, "ON LETTING GO," to a top 30 chart debut on the Billboard 200. A remarkably volatile live act, Circa Survive has headlined numerous sold out tours while also sharing stages with an array of like-minded artists, including My Chemical Romance, Coheed & Cambia, The Gaslight Anthem, Pelican, Rise Against, and countless others. The band has additionally performed at a wide range of festivals including multiple appearances at The Bamboozle and on Vans Warped Tour. What's more, Circa Survive was among the most well-received acts at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, prompting Spin to praise frontman Anthony Green's "crystalline, soprano vocals" which "whip out above the fracas, weaving in and out between Circa's dueling guitars."

Circa Survive is: Nick Beard (bass), Steve Clifford (drum), Brendan Ekstrom (guitar), Colin Frangicetto (guitar), Anthony Green (vocals)
