Philly Rockers Circa Survive formed in 2004 after Anthony had an epiphany while on a layover in Phoenix – despite the fact that his band Saosin was close to success, he knew he would be miserable if he returned. When asked about his decision to leave home he said, "I left primarily because I didn't want to sign to a major label in that band." Green also said that another reason for leaving Saosin was because he was very homesick and missing his family. Green returned to Colin Frangicetto, a friend with whom he had "jammed" during his stay, and they decided to begin recording and recruiting. Thus, Circa Survive was born. The band consists of vocalist Anthony Green (the former singer of Saosin) Colin Frangicetto, Brendan Ekstrom, Nick Beard, Steve Clifford.
Their first album, Juturna, was released on April 9, 2005, by Equal Vision Records, and received mixed, yet mostly positive, reviews. However their second album, On Letting Go, released on May 29, 2007, met widespread critical acclaim.
Their third album, Blue Sky Noise, was released on April 20, 2010, on Atlantic Records to even greater critical acclaim and mainstream success, with still one of my favorite rockers the fantastic single 'Get Out'
