Ok, everyone on a real note. I’m being sued by a merch company due to Decoder debt. I am facing the criminal charge of grand theft due to a totally of 1900 dollars being due, and could face up to 3 years in prison, or garnished wages, which would not allow me to sustain life. The bill was originally 3400 and I’ve personally with money out of my pocket got it down to 1900. Times are extremely hard for everyone right now, including myself. I am not begging for money nor looking for sympathy, just maybe a helping hand or an encouraging notion. If everyone of my friends on here gave even just .25 cents, I would be way beyond my goal. So if your feeling generous please share this with friends – my paypal is – firstname.lastname@example.org – Thank You all! – Jack Burns
Circa Survive have announced their new album Violent Waves will be released independently August 28th. Check out pre-order packages that include a whopping $750 bundle with hand written lyrics (limted to 11) and download their new song “Suitcase” here. Below is a statement from the band…
We are excited to announce that we have chosen to self-release our 4th album, “Violent Waves” on August 28th.
Over the years we have been on both indie and major record labels. We are thankful for the opportunities we’ve had with them but it’s 2012 and we want to try something we’ve never done before. We produced this record ourselves. This is raw Circa Juice straight from us to you. We also paid for it with our own money; money that likely came from you buying a ticket or t-shirt over the years. All in all we have never been more deeply involved in every aspect of creating a record.
Starting now you can pre-order “Violent Waves” directly from our website. The digital version will only be $5. We’ve tried to make it as affordable as possible and we hope you’ll help us by spreading the word to your friends and families so we can continue doing what we love. By choosing to download or buy our record straight from us you are choosing to give our band a future and are directly supporting us and our families.
As a band we will always support independent record stores – any store that wants to carry our record is welcome to order it directly from us as well. The record will also be available on iTunes. We’re also really excited to announce a US tour in support of the record in the Fall, and two special release shows in Philadelphia August 24th and 25th. All tickets will go on sale this Friday, check your email for pre-sale information which will start on Wednesday. Touche Amore, Balance and Composure and O’brother will be supporting us on the tour. Openers for Philadelphia will be announced soon.
We have always looked at Circa Survive as more than just a band. Above all it’s been a relationship between the five of us and you and everyone who has ever been involved in this community we’ve built together. We believe that this step will bring us even closer. Big thanks to our friend Esao Andrews for once again creating the perfect artwork to match our sounds, and most importantly thanks to you for your endless support.

Just Like Vinyl (ex-The Fall Of Troy) has signed to Superball records. Their label debut is set for release late this summer. Statement from the band…
We couldn’t be happier being a part of the Superball family/roster. There’s a lot of really talented and caring people at the label and we are excited as hell for what the future holds.
