if anyone has the Sumerian Records vinyl repress/reissue of Violent Waves released back in september,

could you please take some good overhead pics of:
the front and back covers
and the inside pages
and both sides of the records please?

we want to compare them with the original press and see if there are any subtle differences.

I actually asked sumerian about them when they first went live and they said the vinyl editions of violent waves that they have are from the first run that was self released.

Violent Waves is the perfect name for this record. Both the songs themselves and the entire album have an undulating flow to them. It's like being alone on a ship in the middle of the sea. It starts off with a storm unfolding, the clouds darkening, and eventually lightning piercing through the sky (Birth of Econ). Then the storm unleashes all its power and the waves start crashing into the boat (Sharp Practice). Then there's a calm (Suitcase) before the second storm (The Lottery). Etc, etc. The dynamic contrast and flow of VW really makes it beautiful.

It amazes me how Anthony's vocals just gets better and better with every new album they release.

Every song brings up a different feeling in me.. somehow very nostalgic and it makes me think about winter 2010.. many things happened that year.. bad stuff - Violent Waves makes me think about that stuff and actually thinking about some of those things now makes me smile.

I'm so proud of these guys.. My favorite band for about 6 years i wish i could meet them someday and just thank them.. no matter how awkward it would be.. starstruck and emotional i just want to thank them.

Circa Survive saves fucking lives...
Thank you.

Seriously, OLG sounds nothing like juturna. In fact, thats a great way to evolve as a band with what they did with OLG.  BSN was entirely different, and def. had some "formulaic radio-rock songs" such as imaginary enemy, get out, i felt free. Imaginary enemy is a good song in itself but it isnt circa great. You say you accept criticism but when it is given it is referred to as crying and whining. I don't want them to write exactly like JUT or OLG but i do wish they keep some elements like house of leaves or stop the fucking car or the greatest lie. I have to hear the entire album but sharp practice isn't a great song in their catalog and neither is suitcase (kinda bland)

i didn't say it was MY opinion that juturna and OLG sounded the same. a ton of the discussion on here when OLG came out was that it was referred to as "juturna 2.0."

there is a huge difference between criticism and crying and whining. most of the people complaining about violent waves are crying and whining because we haven't heard the album, yet they are so quick to say its not what they wanted to hear. its crying and whining when all people say is "i wish they would go back to how the sounded on juturna." thats you. thats what you did. it gets old. we've heard that complaint for over 5 years. after a while its really annoying. i'm not expecting everyone to like everything the band does. thats not what this is about and that would make for a boring discussion. if you have something constructive to bring to the discussion, do it. but if all you're going to do is say "i want juturna again wahh wahh wahh," don't do it. its pointless and its been said a thousand times before.

Handshakes At Sunrise
Arrive, open your eyes, I'm freeing you. Take time for passers by to meet with. We want it all. My friend I'm afraid I've lost forever. The scream within the misteaching of a metaphor. Breathing out the lie, I've been fooled. We won't stop until the dawn has given its all to you. A warm appraisal hides behind an audience member. The last thing that I want, freeing us all. Who are replacing us.

lyric-wise, this song makes me think of awareness, absence and reintegration.

leaving home for strangers. playing along for acceptance. half-believing the front. the gradual decent into absent mindedness. the passive nature of being a passenger when you indulge someone else's desires. waking from within that situation. your real desires return to your mind. you return. finding that you've been doing something you don't want to do. you actively retake the direction of your fate. make hard decisions. unpopular decisions. wondering. planning. excited but regretful. where is it that you want to be? who would you be with if you hadn't left? how did they deal with your absence?
