Circa Survive surprised their followers yesterday with news of an upcoming new album. Entitled The Amulet, the records release is not far off! September 22nd to be exact. It seems they have once again moved homes, switching from Sumerian Records to Hopeless Records for the new release. At the moment, details of the album are sparse to say the least. But for now, enjoy the new single and music video for “Lustration” while we await further details.
In a time when bands are relying more heavily on lyric videos and abstraction to promote their music, Circa Survive have put a real focus on the visual element in “Lustration”. With a hybrid blend of illustrative art and live shots, a strong use of color composition, and a unique narrative, the single is a nothing short of a visual treat. The track itself is sure to satisfy fans as well, with the clean vocal melodies and infectious drum patterns permeating the length of the single. Even for those who do not necessarily enjoy the band, it’s worth watching the video for the visual creativity on display.
