Ten Years Of Chasing Suns: Looking Back At The Supergroup Behind ‘Tiger And The Duke’

For the longest time my brother and I had pretty similar tastes in music. Eventually though, our tastes changed. I started getting into metal and screamo, while he continued to drift toward indie and alt-rock. Initially, The Sound Of Animals Fighting weren’t on my radar, but him and his best friend made me listen to their debut album on a car ride. After that, I became a fan. They were my connection to other bands like Circa Survive and RX Bandits.

2005 was a great year for music for me. I was in high school, and I was discovering …

My Favorite Albums Of 2014 Surprised Me

​Going into 2014, there was a handful of albums I was looking forward to. The bands are well-established and I figured their releases would end up being my favorite of the year. After the headache of sifting through 12 months worth of new releases I came to realize that was not the case. The albums that knocked me off my feet were unexpected, and I’m happy that I was wrong.

As any avid music listener would know, it can be difficult to pick just one favorite album. After painstakingly organizing this year’s albums I decided to list off a bunch …

LIVE REVIEW: Circa Survive at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA (12/13/14)

There’s always something special about welcoming a band home after a long tour. One would think that this band (and the rest on the bill) would be worn out, deflated, and simply spent after a month and a half of straight touring. Circa Survive are not that band. Well, not that tired and exhausted band. They are, in fact, the band that Philadelphia welcomed home with open arms and strong voices at Union Transfer this past weekend.

Opening the latter half of the tour was Baltimore’s Pianos Become the Teeth, fresh off the release of their third, near-perfect record, …

Descensus

REVIEW: Circa Survive – ‘Descensus’

Artist: Circa Survive
Album: Descensus
Genre: Progressive Rock, Experimental
Label: Sumerian Records

On their fifth full-length, Descensus, Circa Survive have reinvented themselves with staggering efficiency, resulting in their most abrasive, well-rounded attempt to date. A stark divergence from 2012’s Violent Waves, the ten-track effort is laden with the same soaring intricacies that fans have grown to love, only this time around, they are implemented with a unified sense of purpose. Introspective and upfront, it is a perfect blend of all the band’s past embodiments, littered with enough nuance to keep you on the edge of your seat.
