Circa Survive Releasing Deluxe Reissue Of ‘Violent Waves’ Through Sumerian Records

Circa Survive

In what seems to be an out of the blue pairing, Sumerian Records has just announced a partnership with Circa Survive. The label will be working with the band to release a deluxe reissue of their most recent album, Violent Waves. The reissue is set to hit stores September 9. The album, as you may know, was initially self-released by the band back in 2012.

The reissue will include a DVD with some behind the scenes footage of their performance at The Shrine this past winter. You can check out a short trailer for the DVD below the break.

It does not sound like the band is actually signing with Sumerian. They are utilizing their distribution capabilities to spread their product over a wider swath of fans than they may be able to on their own. You can read what Sumerian had to say about the partnership below as well.

Pre-orders for the album are available for purchase through Sumerian’s official website.

Sumerian Records is proud to welcome CIRCA SURVIVE to its worldwide roster and this partnership kicks off with the much-anticipated deluxe edition of the group’s last album, Violent Waves, on Sept. 9th. This disc was originally released by the band with no record label backing or traditional distribution outlet, yet still debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Violent Waves (Deluxe Edition) will also feature a full-length DVD of the group’s sold-out performance from The Shrine in Los Angeles this past Dec. Check out the DVD trailer now at the link below. This also has a slew of never before seen backstage footage, behind the scenes with the band, music videos + more.

Anthony Green (vocals) states: “We are so happy to be a part of the Sumerian family. To be able to have the same creative freedom as we did on our own plus the benefits of having their team helping us spread our music and message is a dream scenario.

Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Records Creator & CEO) further comments: “Today is one of the happiest and fulfilling days of my career and I think I speak for our entire staff when sharing that sentiment. Having CIRCA SURVIVE join the Sumerian family is a dream come true. Their passion and approach of artistic transcendence as a band is exactly what we continue to strive for with Sumerian as a brand.

“Their progressive, ethereal songwriting that conveys emotion in such a unique way has built them an incredible cult following while always staying true to themselves, which is the definition of musical success in my mind. Sumerian is honored to play a part in their career and vision. We hope to help them achieve even bigger goals while bringing their music to more new ears.”
