Circa Survive Tops Emotional Rock Bill at Revolution

These Pennsylvania emo-prog dudes recently completed a stint as Coheed and Cambria's opening act and hooked up with Deftones for a run. But Circa Survive definitely deserves its own look: On Blue Sky Noise, the band's major-label debut (which came out in April), frontman Anthony Green layers his yearning little-boy vocals over knotty, complex arrangements that inspire equal parts head-banging and fist-pumping. Like Coheed and Deftones (and Tool, whose sometime-producer David Bottrill helmed Blue Sky Noise), Circa Survive exists within a complicated world of its own devising. It's probably worth noting that the new album's cover, for instance, depicts a Pegasus with a rainbow where its head should be. Yet Green's singing provides a route into the music that personalizes it in an uncommon way. Good stuff.
