Circa Survive Tickets
Circa Survive TicketsCirca Survive is a progressive rock and indie rock band that formed in 2004 in Doylestown, Pa., near Philadelphia. Anthony Green, the founder, leader, vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist cobbled the group together with former members from Saosin, This Day Forward and Taken, three other bands in which Green was once involved (though Green would return to Saosin in 2014 while still remaining in Circa Survive). The band's other members are lead guitarist, backing vocalist, and keyboardist Colin Frangicetto; rhythm guitarist Brendan Ekstrom; bassist and backing vocalist Nick Beard; and drummer Steve Clifford. Circa Survive released its debut album, Juturna, in 2005, immediately making a splash in the indie music scene when it debuted at No. 183 on the Billboard 200 and quickly sold about 75,000 copies. Circa Survive would go on to release five more studio albums and counting - the highest-charting thus far being 2010's Blue Sky Noise - and tour with bands that included My Chemical Romance, Thrice, Pelican and Bad Religion.
Indie ExtraordinairesAfter Juturna's release, Circa Survive would release two songs from the album, "Act Appalled" and "in Fear and Faith," to capitalize on the album's success. The group's second album, 2007's On Letting Go, would chart much higher than its predecessors, reaching No. 24 on the Billboard 200 and producing the single "The Difference Between Medicine and Poison Is in the Dose," a song that remains a live favorite to this day. Up to this point, Circa Survive had been influenced by progressive rock and post-hardcore, which was clearly reflected in their sound, but their 2010 album, Blue Sky Noise, would signal a sea change. It was a clean break from Circa Survive's earlier sound and would set the band on a transition into indie rock. The album sold extremely well, reaching No. 11 on the Billboard 200 and leading to three very popular singles, "I Felt Free," "Imaginary Enemy" and "Get Out." The following album, 2012's Violent Waves, was self-released and also charted quite well, peaking at No. 15 on the Billboard 200. The group's next two albums, 2014's Descensus and 2017's The Amulet, would also make respectable showings, charting at Nos. 50 and 26 respectively.

What are some songs in a typical Circa Survive setlist?"Act Appalled" is a popular opener while "Get Out" often closes the show. In fact, the band likes to yell "get out!" at the audience repeatedly after finishing the song until everyone has left.
