if they do an ep they'll most likely put only half the songs on the lp I'd rather have it that way. more music, seriously...

From what Nick told me they took a break, because they could. not because it was some "we need time apart" thing. he told me no writing has been done too.

I think a lot of the reason they were on Equal Vision was to finish up the contract This Day Forward signed and never fulfilled because they broke up after one album on EVR.

I really liked them on EVR because they had a lot of freedom and were able to do all sorts of tours and stuff and get their name out there.

That's possible. I know them going to EVR was because Colin and Brendan had a good relationship with the people at EVR because of TDF, but I don't think the contract was from one band was extended to the other if that's what you mean. Although, it does all correlates with each other.

Perception =/= reality. Stop worrying about it so much, because like I said, they're the same 5 dudes.

:wub:

And even so, change is progression. As long as the guys are happy with their product I feel good listening to it and appreciating it. People grow, our ideas and principles are allowed to change. As long as the guys core music values and ideologies are true to themselves people should appreciate whatever they decide to put out.

Their myspace still says Equal Vision. And Atlantic's site doesn't have them listed although I don't know how frequent that's updated anyway.

Looking at Atlantic's roster, they have some pretty big names obviously, that'd be an interesting move, marketing wise.

I'm 99.9% sure that McTernan produced Juturna and Inuit Sessions, as well. He probably just got paid more to do OLG cause they had more monetary support from EVR.

They only had a 2 record contract with EV, they don't know what they are going to do as of yet.

They're free agents.

I'm sure they have options.

Seriously, Sire should pick them up though.

Triple Crown ftw

EDIT:  I'm aware that move would keep them at the same level they are at, maybe even a step down, but I love TCR

if i get a chance to talk to circa survive, i could suggest they hire Chuck Johnson, the engineer of "Relationship Of Command." he did a great job on this album.

when a label signs a band, they sign them for the initial release (in circa's case juturna) and then a certain number of follow-up albums which are called options. Apparently EVR only signed them with one option.

if a label sees amazing potential in a band (or amazing stupidity), they well attempt to sign them to 3 or 4 options, because they can release every one of those albums with the same royalty rates as the first release (no matter how huge the band gets)

for moneys sake, it is always in a band's best interest to sign a contract with the least amount of options.

now that circa has considerably expanded their fan-base and appeal, they will be able to negotiate a contract with another label, maintain creative flexibility, and get payed out the ass for doing so.

good things will most definitely come out of this.

Thanks for the info jesseg.

I didn't know all that. A lot of us expect nothing but positivity I'm sure.

we are free agents right now. a few files of song ideas have been shared within the band. pretty sure we won't go back to mcternan this time. although he is a good friend. yes, he did record juturna and 3/4 of the inuit sessions. i agree that sonically they are pretty similar. he also recorded youinseries, and skyeatsairplane for evr.

Thanks for informing us. What ever decision the band decides to make will be a smart when it comes to going with a label.

Come hear Circa Survive's much anticipated follow up to their sophomore record On Letting Go, produced by the same man who brought you The Con, by Tegan and Sara.

Cool dude though lol definitely an interesting concept.
