Circa Survive Release Video For New Single, Launch Pre-orders For ‘Descensus’

It’s been less than two weeks since Circa Survive officially announced their fifth LP, Descensus, which is due out on November 24 through their new label, Sumerian Records.

Following the brief teaser found with the announcement, the band has released a visually stunning and disturbingly surreal new video for the album’s lead single, entitled “Schema,” which we heard a brief snippet of in the album’s initial trailer. Clocking in at nearly five minutes in length, our first taste of Descensus wastes no time introducing us to the aggressive nature in which the album opens, musically reminiscent of labelmates The …

Pianos Become The Teeth Announce Many Things: A New Label, New Album AND A New Song

The rumor mill was right. Pianos Become the Teeth confirmed today that their third studio album, Keep You, will be released by Epitaph Records. Speculation started last week after Epitaph released pictures of their Fall 2014 Sampler cassette, which listed Pianos Become the Teeth among the label’s regulars. PBTT released this statement on their website:

With such an important and diverse history, it is a huge honor to join the Epitaph family. This album is incredibly special to us and we can’t thank you all for your continued support.

Circa Survive / Title Fight / Pianos Become The Teeth Announce Major Fall Tour

Tour announcements are always the best thing to happen, for you never know what bands are booking an outing together. When they do get announced, a lot of the times your jaw will most likely drop at the lineup you will see when it comes to your nearest city.

UTG EDITORIAL CROP

EDITORIAL: Songs To Calm An Anxious Mind

It was a complete depersonalization and increasing dehumanization. Nothing was real, for everything that was real was hastily slipping away. I began to think of my family, and how they would react once I was gone. I was soon replaying the last conversations we had in my mind, as if I could somehow justify our last dialogues as fitting for a goodbye.

I sat in my car in a parking lot as it began to happen. The same car that drove me home from hockey practice, drove me to my first concert, picked up my first date, and acted as …
