  2. http://offtheboardcomp.com/ PRODUCER WILL YIP TO RELEASE COMPILATION FEATURING TITLE FIGHT, CIRCA SURVIVE, AND MANY OTHERS PROCEEDS WILL BE USED AS PARTIAL PAYMENT ON STUDIO 4 OFF THE BOARD: A STUDIO 4 FAMILY COMPILATION AVAILABLE 10/8 Multi-genre producer and engineer WILL YIP will be releasing Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation on October 8th, 2013 featuring un-released and EXCLUSIVE songs from a slew of bands all recorded and mixed at Studio 4 including: Title Fight, Circa Survive, Balance and Composure, Man Overboard, Citizen, Turnover, Daylight, Koji, Tigers Jaw, Polar Bear Club, Dead End Path, Sainthood Reps, Mongoloids, None More Black, Light Years, Pity Sex, and Anthony Green. “This comp represents everything that I’ve done in the past ten years of my life,” explains Yip. Proceeds are being used for a down payment toward his partnership in the legendary Studio 4 located in Conshohocken, PA. “I want to give the punk, hardcore, and alternative community of awesome bands a home,” he adds. By entering into a partnership with studio owner and Grammy Award-winning producer Phil Nicolo (Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, The Fugees, Sting) it enables Yip to work with the bands that he loves, no matter the budget. “The only thing that ever mattered was how much I love the music,” describes Yip. “I always want to produce bands that I like, but most of the time those budgets aren’t close to prior Studio 4 budgets. This studio always produced big records in a big studio environment, an experience that most bands in our indie scene historically never had. By owning the studio, I’ll be able to accept nearly any budget instead of worrying about having to pay a large rental overhead. I have the once in a lifetime opportunity to not only continue the Studio 4 legacy, but to also make this classic studio a home to our community of the best bands in the world.” Unlike any other compilation,Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation was recorded, mixed, and mastered at the same studio by one person - Will Yip which gives it the feel of an album due to the consistency of the mixing, mastering, and studio gear. Also, most of the songs were specifically written for this project. The album is being released on limited edition colored vinyl (500 red / 500 green), black vinyl (2,000), and CD. THERE WILL ONLY BE 1 PRESSING OF THE RECORD! In addition, it’ll be available worldwide digitally. Additional pre-order items include vinyl test presses, exclusive t-shirts, signed and numbered prints of the album art by Circa Survive guitarist Colin Frangicetto, autographed drum sticks/heads that were used in sessions, and one of a kind interactive experiences such as bowling with Will Yip and Circa Survive, group studio tour, be a fly on the wall during a session, and an all-day recording clinic. In addition, fans will be able to purchase tickets for the inaugural Studio 4 Sessions featuring Anthony Green with special guests Tigers Jaw on September 20th and 21st. Different from other intimate stripped-down sessions, it will be fully interactive with Q&A throughout the entire show. Most of all, everyone in attendance will receive a copy of the session on CD. At the mere age of 14, Will Yip started off his recording career working with local bands as an apprentice under Chris Grillo at Ground Control Recording in Northeast Philadelphia. After he learned the basics, he bought some of Chris’ old gear and began recording in his parent’s basement. Fortunately, he was able to fine-tune his skills and land a job at Studio 4, which is one of the last of its kind with Neve and SSL consoles. Over the past 30 years Studio 4 has produced countless platinum, gold, and Grammy-winning records and even housed the most successful indie record label of all-time – Ruffhouse Records. Today, he’s one of the most sought after producers in both the local and indie music scenes. His project Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation is being released on October 8th, 2013 and will be available for a limited time.

  3. Interview : Anthony Green of Circa Survive http://sightofsoundmagazine.com/2013/03/22/interview-anthony-green-of-circa-survive/ March 22, 2013 By Matt Christine After a short walk from the box office, where I had just picked up my photo pass for the night’s show, I found my way to a back parking lot behind the Sherman Theater to see Circa Survive‘s tour bus. I was scheduled to interview Anthony Green at 6:30PM that day, but both he and I were ready to go early so after a text to the tour manager we decided we would just go ahead and knock out earlier. As I climbed onto the fully packed bus I was greeted by Anthony and we headed to the back of the bus where we could sit down and get this interview started. As I set up my gear I noticed just how dark it was and we made the decision to just record the audio of the interview, luckily I had Henry Chung from Neostar Promotions along with me for the interview because he was able to snap a few photos using my camera to run along with the transcript and audio. I clicked the record button and Anthony and I got the interview started off. Matt Christine : Thank you for sitting down with Sight of Sound Magazine today Anthony. Anthony Green : No problem. Matt : Welcome home to a certain extent. Anthony : Sort of, yeah. Matt : Yeah, close enough. Have you guys ever played at the Sherman Theater before? Anthony : We played here once like a year or two ago with Taking Back Sunday, right when they got like all of the original members back in the band. It was really cool. Matt : That sounds awesome, well let’s talk about “Violent Waves.” It was self-released. Which I know was a really big deal for you as a band and the music industry as a whole reacted positively to that decision. Do you foresee the band continuing down this path in the future? Anthony : Yeah, there is no reason why would ever stray from that now. Unless we found a really perfect partner and the deal was really good you know? I can’t imagine why would release a record any other way. Matt : Well much respect to you guys for self-releasing that album, I know there is a certain degree of professionalism that comes along with doing that and it is a lot different than what most bands are doing. Anthony : Yeah, people don’t relieze how much is involved in releasing a record there is a lot - Da-da? - Heyy buddy, wanna come say hi? -Yeah - There is a lot that is involved in promoting and releasing an album and that is hard to do when you are also writing and recording it all. I think it would be difficult for a band that hasn’t been touring for 10 years and had a pretty dedicated and awesome following. Matt : Yeah, I would imagine that would help. So how does it feel to see a lot of the bands within the “local” scene grow and gain as much attention as it has? Bands like Title Fight and even Motionless In White. Anthony : It is always awesome seeing young bands from the area, you know like Balance and Composure and Title Fight, just killing it like they are doing. They make such good music, I love Title Fight and Balance and Composure so much and it is so awesome to see other people catching on. Matt : Yeah, Pennsylvania is really becoming a hot market for new music. Anthony : You know I feel there has always been a great like hardcore and punk rock scene here but it is cool to see it busting through. Matt : It is definetly making it’s impression on the world now. So a few years ago you put out the “Appendages – EP” on vinyl for Record Store Day. Will you guys be doing anything special for Record Store Day this year? Anthony : I don’t think we have anything - Daddy?! - I’m doing an interview buddy, you wanna come say hi? - I think we are just planning on releasing new music and we just didn’t have it ready in time for Record Store Day. Matt : It happens, well you guys just wrapped up a headlining tour in the fall, you did an acoustic tour with Geof and now you’re at the half-way point of a co-headlining tour with Minus the Bear. Whats in-store for summer? Anthony : Well we are going to Australia and Asia with Coheed and Cambria. We are going to do Hawaii, we are going to write and I’m going to do my next solo record, so a lot of stuff. Always busy. Matt : With nearly a decade’s worth of music, what would be your favorite song to perform live? Anthony : You can’t really pick favorites because there is so much and there is not a song that we ever have that I wouldn’t want to play that wouldn’t make me feel good to play. We have been closing the nights with “Get Out” and that as the last song to play kind of feels good, it is a great end to the set. Matt : I saw on Facebook that people were voting for the setlist, is that something you do often? Anthony : We actually just started that on this tour because the last tour was the first time we ever changed the set every night. Now that we have so much more material and so much to choose from it helps us sometimes to hear that a bunch of people want to hear “All your friends are gone” , so we do it. Matt : That is great, I haven’t seen many bands have that pre-show interaction with their fans before. Anthony : Technology is amazing if you use the right way. We are able to stay in contact and in touch with the main core of our fans. Those are the people who will come out and buy the record right when it comes or buy tickets right away, they just really love the band. Matt : So does anybody have day jobs when at home and not touring? Anthony : No, not that I know of. This is it. We’ve been making a living doing this for awhile now but we would probably be making more money working full time at 7/11. Its not about making a shitload of money as much as it is just doing what you love. Matt : What have you guys been listening to these days?c Anthony : Well I love that Title Fight record, they are really good. I love Balance and Composure, listen to that record a whole lot, the new Deftones gets put on almost every I time I put my headphones on before bed. I love that album. Matt : They were just here at the Sherman Theater actually. Anthony : Yeah, the lady out front was telling us about that. Matt : A few years ago, there was a piece in Alternative Press where you interviewed Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction. Have you two kept in touch since then? Anthony : No it was kind of a one off, it was cool though. There is a possibility that Circa might do something with them in the future. I don’t know if he would even remember of me, it would have been sweet if we were like best buds after that though. Matt : The deluxe version of last year’s ‘Beautiful Things‘ was one of the rare bonus editions in that there were some awesome songs left off of the regular edition. How did you get Chino from the Deftones, Nate from FUN., Lights and Ida Maria to appear on it? Anthony : We really just sent the songs out to the people we wanted to be on them and those were the people that responded. I sent Chino that song cause I wanted him to do it and luckily at the last minute he got back and was like I got this track and I like it. I thought he hadn’t gotten it or didn’t want to do it. Matt : Was there anyone who didn’t get back to you? Anthony : There was, John from Portugal the Man. We wanted him to be on “Get Yours While you Can” but he was too busy, so he better do it next time. Matt : Well that is all that I have for you, should be a good show tonight. Anthony : Dude it is going to be a great tonight, I love this town. Anytime we play around this area it is always fun. Matt : No doubt, well thanks again for sitting down with Sight of Sound Magazine today, I’ll see you later on from the photo pit for the first three songs. Anthony : No problem brother. Below is the original audio recording from the interview, there are a few “off topic” moments where Anthony, Henry and I had discussions during the interview as well as a few more interruptions and distractions that I edited out just for ease of reading. Don’t forget to check that out our photo and review coverage of Circa Survive‘s return to Pennsylvania.
  4. Interview with Anthony Green . Livication Media Interview . 09.22.2012 http://livication.com/blog/interviews/2012/10/23/live-video-interview-circa-survive-the-beacham-92212-orlando-fl/#more-809 Just first off, congratulations on you guys releasing another album last month. It must feel really great! Thanks! It does. It’s incredible and it was a lot of work, so its really a relief to have it be out there. And you guys recorded it all by yourselves this time? Yeah we produced it ourselves, we put it out ourselves, we did everything ourselves. That’s really cool, man. And you guys put together some really awesome limited packages for this album that had a lot of one-of-a-kind artwork made by you guys. Can you tell us a little bit about you guys’ experience with that and how that was? It was awesome, we got together for like two weeks and just painted these sleeves. We went and got the artwork printed on the sleeves for the vinyl, just the stencil drawings of them, and then painted everything in. Like, I painted all the ornaments in for the back of the CD. It’s actually the inside of the CD, but it’s on the back of the vinyl. I hand-painted all the little ornaments,Colin did sketches, and I wrote out all the lyrics for people. It was just fun, you know. It makes you feel connected with the people who are like, the most die-hard fans. You know what I mean? It’s a shared connection. It’s something I’m really grateful to have with this band. I feel like we’re in a day where the album itself just doesn’t have as much value because of the fact that people can just take it off the internet. So the more you can do to individualize something to make it something from you, you know, the more likely it is that they’re going to want to have something to hold on to like that. No one gives a shit anymore about the CD. So, give them a painting. Do you think being on a label limits a band at all, or did it just feel right to do it on your own this time? It all depends on what you want from your career. And for a band like us, and what we wanted from our career, it wouldn’t have been right to stay on Atlantic. But, you know, that being said, I’m sure that there’s tons of people that would be able to flourish and have an incredible music career while working with those people. Not us. So what are you singing about in Sharp Practice when you’re saying “we can’t sell our god damn souls anymore?” I’m talking about you guys. Everyone thinks we wrote that song about the record label. I’m talking about you guys. See, that’s why I wanted to ask, because… I don’t like talking about what the songs are about. …it’s up to us to make sense of it, right? (Referencing the line “It’s up to you to make sense of it” in Sharp Practice) Precisely. I grew up in the Philly area and I know you guys have an extremely personal connection when you play shows back up home. I was just wondering, what were some of your favorite local venues to play when you guys were first starting off, that maybe you guys have outgrown now, or you wish you could revisit? You never outgrow a venue. Never. No matter how big you get. You can always do whatever you want. There’s no rule that says you have to play bigger places every time. Circa’s been growing our fan base for 8 years and we can go and play a place like this (The Beacham), but then next tour come back and play two nights at The Social instead. You know. We’ve done that a bunch. We do it on this tour, there’s a couple places we decided, like, rather than play some giant room, we want to keep it really intimate. Bands feel like they can’t do that, I feel like, because they don’t want to appear to have to play, when we really don’t give a shit. We wanna have fun. The last time I saw you here was at House of Blues, and that’s like… Massive. …probably one of the biggest venues in Orlando. I like this place. Beacham’s pretty cool! Have you guys ever played here before? Yeah, I played here by myself, on my tour. That’s right, just back in January. We saw you here. With the dogs. That’s right. So, you guys just released the music video for Suitcase, and was that the first video that didn’t actually feature the band members in it? Yup. And what was it like creating something like that? How involved were you guys? It was incredible. I feel like having to involve a performance aspect of it really limits you. I actually came up with the idea for the video. Like, it was my concept. And the director had this other idea, and I sent him my treatment, and he was like “Hey, what if I did this, and that?” And I’m like…[makes a hesitant face]. He didn’t like the one aspect of it – like, what makes it, fuckin’, so weird. He wanted to change that a lot and we met in the middle. I feel like nobody else could have made it but this dude Dannel who directed it, and I sorta had to push him a little bit to go outside of his comfort zone, but he did such an incredible job, man. It couldn’t have been any better. It’s real weird. You don’t walk away from it going “Oh yeah, that’s about this.” Like, it’s about a lot of weird things. Are there any new cool treats coming for the Creature Club to go along with this new album? Ah, you know, I think we’re in the process of rebuilding the Creature Club. So, it was something that Atlantic set up with us, and I think it’s something we really want to do something very different with from what they had in mind. I think they really saw it as a way to get more money out of the people who were the biggest fans, and we really would rather – if we’re going to have a fan club, we want it to be something that’s a little bit more special than that, and not just about trying to make more money off of people. We’re trying to figure out how we’re going to maneuver the fan club into something that’s like, maybe even free, and isn’t necessarily so exclusive to whoever can afford it. I was actually one of the people that was up on stage singing with you guys. I think it was the first or second time you had done that. At the House of Blues. Yeah. Spirit Of The Stairwell. I think that was the first time we did that. It’s really cool that you guys can do something like that. Yeah, I mean, I still think we’d like to keep people being able to come in and see the sound checks and everything, but theres like a financial process around it that I think needs to be reevaluated and restructured. So, it’s been really great talking to you, man, and thanks for making your way to Florida once again. No problem dude, I love the shows here. I love them. I always have. Tonight’s going to be so fucking good. I already have, like – sometimes, you know, you have weird days where you’re not feeling that great, and you go up on stage and it’s a great show, and you’re like, “Aw, this is great, I really needed this!” and something else is weighing you down. Other days you just know from the second you wake up, like, “Today’s going to be a good day.” I knew that- I felt that today. Well we’re going to get a video of it, because we’ve got a couple people here with our crew and we’re going to shoot a live video, and I’m sure it will be amazing. Awesome! I can’t wait to see it. This is actually the first time I’ve interviewed a band before the show, so… Make sure I look good. You always look good my friend, let me tell you. I look like a fuckin’ crazy person. A little bit, but in a good way. Live Video – Circa Survive @ The Beacham in Orlando FL, 9/22/12 Here’s our live video of Circa Survive performing their songs “Get Out” and “The Difference Between Poison and Medicine Is In The Dose” at The Beacham in Orlando, FL on 9/22/12. As always, these guys put on a tight and incredibly entertaining show, playing many of their greatest songs from each album and blending them all very cleanly. If you get the chance to go see Circa Survive’s live show, here’s a little taste of the experience you’ll have.
  5. Speaking with Circa Survive's Anthony Green: Time, changing approach made new disc a success Posted by John J. Moser at 01:30:00 AM on January 29, 2011 When Doylestown’s Circa Survive headed into the studio in late 2009 to begin work on its third album and first on a major label, it was a different paradigm from its earlier discs. For one, front man and singer Anthony Green, with a growing proficiency on guitar, had built some of the songs around acoustic playing and melody, as well as others written around almost all instrumentation before vocals were added. Secondly, with a major label, the experimental progressive/punk band had more studio time to create the songs it wanted, taking three months to write and record. The resulting disc, “Blue Sky Noise,” released last April, hit No. 11 on Billboard’s album chart — eclipsing the No. 24 chart position “On Letting Go” achieved. And it was ranked No. 9 on Myspace.com’s top albums of the year. Anthony Green calling from Cincinnati, Ohio. In a recent telephone call, Green talked about making the new disc and what the changes mean for Circa Survive. Lehigh Valley Music: We’re talking because you’re coming to Allentown’s Crocodile Rock Café. Green: “We’ve played Croc Rock before, and it’s pretty much like a hometown crowd for us over there, so it’s really exciting.” I'll jump right into this. After releasing 'Blue Sky Noise' in spring, why did you put out the “Appendage” EP in November already? “Well, it was a plan that we had set in action right when we went in to record ‘Blue Sky Noise,’ instead of trying to whittle the album down to just 12 songs, we really were a little more indecisive and went in there with, like, 17 songs. So we were like, ‘Let’s plan on putting out an EP so we don’t have to part ways with some of these songs just yet.” I also read there are still more songs left over that may come out. “There are a couple of those songs. Yeah, we wanted to keep them aside for stuff exclusive for charities or we have this fan club, The Creature Club, that we made for just kinda the diehard Circa fans on our website and keep some of the exclusive stuff for those guys. Little secret things to give them to make it special. Those songs will definitely see the light of day.” So tell me about the experience of doing your first album for Atlantic Records. “It was a pretty positive experience. It’s still pretty amazing being on that label and the people that are working there and the people that are working with us are incredible. We haven’t had to make any of the artistic sacrifices that you hear about or the horror stories that you hear about the major label world. If I wanted to, I could pick up the phone and call anybody at that label and get ahold of them. I think the music industry has gone through such a rough time that everybody’s sort of champing at the bit to find new ways to make it work. And we made sure before we signed with anyone that we were all very like-minded. And they were just as excited as us to try to make this weird music and bring it to the masses.” Tell me about the process. Was there any change in which you approached the recording? “We spent a lot more time recording. When we were on Equal Vision [Records] we never had the budget to be in the studio for as long as we were with this album. There was always a sense of rushing when you’re in the studio. You almost can never have enough time. But we spent three months recording and writing … whereas sometimes we would get not even half of that being in the studio for the other albums. So that was a plus for us, ‘cause more time, the better.” The disc topped out at No. 11 on some of the charts, so you have to be happy with its performance. “Oh, absolutely. I mean, for us, it’s more about the fact that we love it and we can play it for anybody. We could sit there and play it for our best friends, our family and be extremely happy about it. The Billboard thing is becoming less and less relevant in my opinion, although I can’t lie and say that it isn’t a cool thing to be like, ‘Holy s---, we were almost … we were in the Top 100 Billboard at 11 for that week.’ But like I said, in these days, it’s really more or less just about being happy with what you did and know that you didn’t have to placate this whole sort of false notion that you’re going to be like Nickleback or Switchfoot. Like, we were celebrating the weirdness of Circa Survive and also the weird accessibility of it, too. So it was pretty cool just to be excited and be happy with our record. I know as much as we love [previous albums] ‘Juturna’ and ‘On Letting Go,’ both of those records, I think, we would have loved to spend a little more time on. And having actually gotten to spend that time on ‘Blue Sky Noise,’ it was way easier to walk away with our hands in the air, happy knowing that we did the work.” Apart from the label change, or maybe along with it, do you sense any growth or maybe broadening any change in the way you approached writing these songs? “Oh yeah, of course. We really explore all the facets of writing. It’s not like we ever get a certain method that we stuck to. For this record, we ended up doing a lot more stripped-down stuff, where we would take an idea and put it to acoustic guitar and pretty just build the song off of the vocal melody and the acoustic guitar. But there were just as many songs on the record written almost all instrumentally before I even put vocals to it. There isn’t like a centralized idea of writing. We really try everything. People are always asking me about why it felt so different, and I think that we’re growing. It reflects us changing. You don’t sound the same when your 20 as you do when you’re 28. You don’t dress the same, you don’t think the same. So I think it would be kind of ridiculous to try to put out the same record that you did when you were 22.” Tell me how you hooked up with Anberlin. “We’ve known those guys for a while and we always thought it would be a really good fit. The music isn’t exactly, not too similar. But it’s also not too far off. I think that it was just a matter of time before we were able to go on tour with them. They’re great guys and I love their music. Their new album’s great. And I think that they definitely capture that sort of old-school, hard-core vibe and it’s very accessible and has that sort of pop edge to it that people can really grasp onto and I always thought that was really cool, when bands could do something like that. I think in that whole genre, there’s a lot of bands that have been trying to pull that sound off. And as far as I can see, they’re the best ones that have done it. But it was just kind of a matter of time.” You guys gonna play the Warped Tour this year? “Uh, no. We are 100 percent confirmed to not play Warped Tour this year [Laughs]. I would never say never about something at Warped Tour. We had a great experience in 2007, but it is 2011. And with the changing musical climate, I think that a lot of – not just the record labels are changing, but the concert industry is changing, too. And Warped Tour was all about just punk bands and showcasing new artists, and I think that in a lot of ways they still do that. But it seems like a different climate there now. There’s no real Rancid, there’s no real Pennywise of this generation. It all seems a lot more about just trying to sell as many tickets as possible. Maybe I’m just naïve and that’s the way it always was. Circa is very grateful to have been part of that tour but I think we’re just as grateful to try to find our niche somewhere else. ” “Now, more than ever, you have to be careful of being pigeonholed and typecast almost. And Circa Survive is really a unique band in my opinion, and not to just sound cocky. I think we spent the last couple of years, and every time we read a review the word ‘Emo’ and ‘Warped Tour’ come up in it [Laughs] And I don’t think that’s a mistake. I don’t think that’s an accident. I think a lot of times people just see, ‘OK, they did all of Warped Tour 2007, let’s see who they toured with … OK, they’re an emo band.’ And I’m not even necessarily saying that’s a bad thing, but we’re not an emo band. It’s a shame, but I think that name has a stigma to it that I can never attach us to. I feel like we’re a very working, versatile, growing, psychedelic pop band [laughs]. And unfortunately they have no title for Warped Tour.” OK, note to self: Don’t use the word ‘emo’ in my story. “Oh, no, no, no [Laughs]. One hundred percent your prerogative. I would never hold it against you for your opinion, or anybody’s opinion for that matter. But we are trying to be conscious of making decisions that will, hopefully, maybe break us out of that mold a little bit so that people won’t be scared to listen to our band that might not necessary like that stigma. But I would never hold it against you as a journalist if that was how you felt. I would just come to your house and hold a boom box under your window ala [the movie] ‘Say Anything.’ [Laughs]. I read you’re already writing a follow-up to your solo disc ‘Avalon’ “Yeah, I actually played about nine songs for Colin last night, our guitar player and co-founder of the band, and was so nervous for him hear the songs that I’ve recorded. I have nine songs on my laptop and like four or five more on the way. [Producer] Jason Cook, the guy who produced Maxim Atlases and Good Old War and countless other band, he actually came down the shore with and the guys from Gold Old War on New year’s Eve this year, and we spent from New year’s Eve till about the sixth or seventh of January just writing and recording, and we’ve recorded like 13 songs.” Do you still live most of your time in Doylestown? “Yeah, I actually just bought a house in Doylestown with my wife in August. It’s the first time I ever bought a house. It’s pretty crazy, actually. … After we did it, both of us had a mini panic attack, like we just gave away all our money and we bought this house. It’s just a crazy feeling. Like we’re in it for life or something.” Congratulations. “Thanks. It was a pretty weird feeling.” http://blogs.mcall.com/lehighvalleymusic/2011/01/speaking-with-circa-survives-anthony-green-time-changing-approch-made-new-disc-a-success.html
  6. SUB. FEATURE INTERVIEW: ANTHONY GREEN TALKS FATHERHOOD AND “BEAUTIFUL THINGS” posted by : Jameson Ketchum on Feb 20, 2012 • 2:47 AM You might look at the image Anthony Green and see the weight of the world on his shoulders. Never a stranger to controversy and the ensuing spotlight followed by a barrage of deeply personal questions, Green subscribes to the idea that its better to put his own positive message out there rather than to remain extremely private and closed off. This idea was heavily tested when he appeared on the cover of last month’s AP Magazine with his one year old son James. Green confesses it was a tough decision but when you see the pair together, it’s clear that there’s little Green wouldn’t do to preserve his son’s eternal protection and joy. James joins us for the first half of the interview in fact. Earmuffs placed firmly on his head, loving every flash of our photographer’s camera. There’s not many musicians like Green in music anymore; extremely friendly and personable, deeply honest and candid, while not coming off as a bleeding heart starving artist. He remembers me from a year earlier when I interviewed him just prior to the release of Blue Sky Noise (easily the strangest interview I’ve ever done). Off the record, Green reveals even more about himself, his seemingly irrational fears and his take on bands being interviewed in general. Talking with Green is like reconnecting with an old high school buddy. You want to remain professional yet you just want to take the guy out for a drink and BS. On stage, Green looks as if he’d be happy never leaving. He’s real with the crowd, joking, starting and stopping songs to tell a quick story, he’s just at home, even when it comes in a disciplinary form (Green stopped in the middle of his first song to tell a kid to stop pushing a girl against the stage and later on that he “wants to punch him in the face so bad” and that the kid has now “lost his singing along privileges”). Often between vocal breaks, Green will step past the mic and look out over the crowd with shifting eyes. It’s almost as if he believes he’s tricking the audience and any minute we’ll discover his secret and walk out the door. As evidenced by numerous sold out dates and the massively positive respond to his new record, its safe to say no one has left Green’s side yet. Substream Music Press: The new record is Beautiful Things. Talk to me about the line, “Now that I’m older I never steal, but I think about it all the time…” I’ve heard you say that that line encapsulates a lot. Anthony Green: I think it had more to do with doing bad shit. Now that you’re older you don’t do it, you just think about it. Which is worse? Thinking about it all the time or doing it? I sort of played around that idea, I’m not a better person I’m just a little better at hiding the darkness. James kicks off one of his shoes. Green spends the next minute or so grappling with his son, now on his back, to get the tiny shoe back on. James lays back and smiles for our photographer. SMP: I just watched the video for “Get Yours While You Can”. You mentioned on the “behind the scenes” that you liked just laying there and having other people carry the energy of it. AG: Yeah. My idea of the video was just having everybody dancing in the middle of it and not even have me be in it. But the label and director got involved and said “You have to be in the video”, and I was like “I don’t want to be in the video”. Videos…to me it’s just not interesting to see a dude singing to the camera, faking some performance. I wanted this video to be something a little different. When we did the “Dying to Reach You” video, we got super into it and we were singing the song super loud and we killed ourselves making that video. The dudes that directed that were incredible and I wanted to be able to do something different from that but still really interesting to watch. I didn’t want to be in it and it was an “over my dead body” type of thing and the director Isaac was like "Okay, alright”. The whole symbolism of me being dead in the video and other people giving the video motion and light was sort of something he kind of came up with from the idea of me not wanting to be in it. It’s a perfect metaphor for how I feel like people can take things out of context and they can start building whatever they want out of your song, your poem, your whatever. If you try to hold onto whatever it means to you too much, it’s going to be really difficult and you have to sort of let other people interpret it and bring it to life. James slides down from Green’s lap and onto the floor. “You want back up?” The father asks his son. “Timmy!” he replies. “You want to go find Timmy?” Green pulls him back up on his lap. SMP: What has James done for you as far as your creativity and your mental state in relation to what you do as an artist? AG: He sort of has helped me keep balance and focus. Green apologizes as his son makes a run for the door leading to the steep steps down to the stage. He then brings James downstairs to find his mother and returns to the green room. AG: Sometimes you and your self preservation isn’t enough to make good decisions. Good decisions meaning like things that aren’t going to put you or anyone who cares about you in harm’s way. I think that for awhile I just had a very difficult time with that, I was very reckless. It was difficult for me to tie a correlation between me being reckless and my personal life. How it affected the things I loved to do and the relationships in my life and James kind of becoming the focus of things helped me realize how silly I was being, how important life is, how important love is, how much I was really trying to escape from the fear of not having that type of love in my life. It’s a scary thing. I think a lot of times we’re so used to numbing ourselves so that we don’t have to face that idea that’s there’s possibly not love in your life and having to maybe look for it or need it. Just needing it is a scary vulnerable thing. He’s kind of taught me how to accept the fact that I need love in my life and that I need to nurture and respect people in a different way. So in that way…just like a 360…made me realize how important people are in my life and how important it is to just be happy. Not even just happy but just being positive and loving and nurturing of what you love. All the really hard shit is always going to be really hard so you don’t need to focus any more of your energy on what already takes it up. SMP: You’re probably having the realization of understanding your own parents a little better as well. AG: A little. My parents were from a different time. As much as I can try and see and understand, I can’t because I don’t know what it was like to be raised like that. They raised me different, more open minded. I know that school is going to be a different priority. I want to take care of him and get him an education and not have it based on like the public school system or private schools even. I just feel like the education system in this country is really fucked and I never want him to feel like he’s competing for intelligence with other people, in my mind or his mind. He is already perfect and he doesn’t need to go to school to become smarter. Man, I had the worst time in school when I was a kid so I won’t ever put him through that. SMP: Not to mention the fact that the arts are going down the drain in our school system but the cool thing is that he’s going to grow up with his dad as an artist. AG: We’re gonna have so much fun as little partners! Painting and writing songs together, singing and dancing. I think he’s going to grow up in a really progressive household where he’s loved, he’s not going to be put in competition with other kids. I hope that. SMP: Switching gears a bit. The new record feels really diverse, especially compared to Avalon. Are you more free with your solo stuff than you are with Circa? AG: Yeah. Just because my solo stuff is whatever I want it to be. I don’t have to bounce any ideas off anybody if I don’t want to. That being said, there’s a lot of what I do with my solo stuff that is extremely collaborative with the Good Old War guys. It’s just a different kind of collaboration. I absolutely love Circa, it’s my baby, my first love. While me having a little bit more freedom in a project is nice, I think the thing that makes Circa great is that everyone is able to have their input and we can work together, make decisions together and make something greater than what you make on your own. SMP: You kind of touched on this, but the fact that you can do what you love for a living, and now more importantly, support a family with it, is incredible and something that so many people out there don’t get to experience. Is that still an every day shock? AG: Any days that stresses come up with this job or whatever, it’s just like a job in that it has stresses and things that fuck you up. Every once in awhile things will bum me out or something will be freaking me out but its such a great experience, its such a great opportunity that I can’t believe its still happening, to be honest. Every tour I do, every record I put out, I feel like I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop. With this record specifically, I was ready for my solo career to be cut. Because the record is really weird and it’s not like anything. I didn’t expect people to respond to such a drastic change. I was very braced for a backlash. I feel like people who have liked my solo stuff have really liked the record and that’s just from the people coming to shows and the shows being sold out all over the place and it just been crazy awesome. I mean, I don’t know what people say on their comments on the internet but I know from these shows that it’s been way better than I expected, I don’t really understand it (laughs). SMP: Maybe the response is because you’re so bold with your solo stuff. A lot of singers “go solo” then just write stripped down versions of their band’s songs. I was at the Where’s the Band Tour the other night and don’t get me wrong those guys are amazing writers, but it made me think when I heard how different your solo stuff was on this last record. AG: I want to be on that Where’s the Band Tour. I want to do a tour that’s just me and an acoustic guitar. SMP: So this tour is for Keep a Breast. What does that charity mean to you? Any close to home stories? AG: I have a few personal family connections with cancer and breast cancer, people that I don’t necessarily want to talk about their stories but Circa has been working with them since 2006. It’s just been a great experience to work with a charity that is so centered on awareness, not just breast cancer but cancer in general. They’re really good people who spread a really good message. It’s a pleasure to be out on tour spreading positivity and to be aligned with a charity like them. It’s a dream come true. My son and I are painting a cast of the girl who is at the booth tonight, which is odd because we’ve been on tour with her for six weeks. When they casted her boobs, they brought it on the bus and I was like “I don’t want those things in here”, there’s already two more boobs than I need on the bus (laughs). But she’s like the greatest girl ever but I just feel uncomfortable with those boobs around. Then they were like “Do you mind painting them?” so Meredith, James and I will be painting them. I’ll tell James when he’s older that he painted boobs (laughs). SMP: He’ll discover them sooner or later. Anything else you’d like to add? AG: I really hate Valentines Day but I’m really stoked to be here on Valentines Day. I fucking hate it and I’ve been married for years. I have lots of love in my life, I just hate corporate holidays. That being said, when I was a teenager and I had a girlfriend, which was very rare, and it was Valentines Day, I went all out. I was fucking romantic. It was everything: the standard, flowers, chocolate, heart shit and plus totally “me” type shit. I would hand make something, make dinner, go somewhere and do something fun. SMP: What was the weirdest thing you gave someone? AG: I had a girlfriend and we had a whole Valentines Day where we were trying to gross each other out. I took her to go see this move that was playing an hour and a half away from my parents’ house at some weird theater. It’s a movie about a doctor who falls in love with this woman who got into a car crash and so that she can’t run away, he cuts her arms and legs off. Then he makes her watch him have sex with prostitutes and stuff. I won that contest. She loved the movie then we went home and drank my parents’ red wine and did it on their couch. It was great though. I think she got me a pig’s heart and I didn’t even know what it was. That was nothing. Later on stage, Green reveals that one of his worst Valentines Days happened before he could even drive. He invited a girl out to see the movie Beethoven. Her curfew was before the movie ended so Green, the girl, and his father had to leave the movie early to take her home. On the way to her house, Green pooped his pants, therefore foregoing the possibly romantic walk to the front door. SMP: I hope you don’t do that kind of stuff with your wife now (laughs). AG: (Laughs) We’re going to go out to dinner tonight. We’re very aware of romance in our lives and like not letting children and life changing things strip that away. We stay up really late burning the midnight oil. It doesn’t hurt that there’s times where I’ll be gone for two weeks and I won’t see her. Although it sucks, its nice for a couple to have a little break from each other sometimes. You have to keep that in mind, you can’t forget it. Sometimes you forget to eat. Interview by Jameson Ketchum Photos by Macy Langley of Riot Photography http://www.substream...autiful-things/
  7. Backstage interview with Anthony Green of Circa Survive October 5, 2012By Jessie Frary Pre-Show Treat My friend, Marissa, and I were amongst the growing mass of fans that showed up early to hang outside of the Center Stage venue in downtown Atlanta to see the sold-out Circa Survive show (she and I were probably a little more giddy than the rest, because we were waiting for a one-on-one interview with Anthony Green himself). Everyone’s eagerness paid off- all of a sudden, on the front steps of the venue, there appeared all of the guys from Circa to play a mini acoustic set for a website called NervousEnergies.com. Some reward. They played “Sharp Practice” and “Suitcase” from their new album, Violent Waves, and everyone, including me, was taking videos and snapping pictures like mad. Shortly after this, their tour manager, Jeffery, called us in, and we waited to interview Anthony in a small room in the basement. More on that later. The Show The first to kick off the show was Balance and Composure, and they immediately got into it. The lead singer even got a little “over-animated” and knocked over a couple of the drummers’ symbols. If you haven’t listened to them before, you need to, and you need to see them live (side note: they remind me a lot of Brand New). Next up was Touché Amoré, and they threw down a little harder than B&C. The lead singer was all over the place getting the crowd hyped up. For those who are unfamiliar with them, they sound a great deal like La Dispute (which might explain why they have a split record with them). Bottom line: these bands are touring with Circa, so you know they have to be legit. And finally, what everyone had been waiting for- Circa Survive. Anthony Green walked on stage. Everyone (including the men) started screaming like little schoolgirls. I was super lucky to have a photo pass, so I got to be right in the photo pit. The place was packed. Frantically crowd surfing, everyone hoping to get close enough for a handshake from Anthony, who was working the crowd as hard as he could (including some seductive gestures and comments that sent everyone into a frenzy). Their set was beautifully lit with tall, rectangular boxes of light and mirrors backlighting the band. They played new material from Violent Waves, such as “Suitcase”, “Birth of the Economic Hit Man”, and “The Lottery”, as well as a few older favorites like “The Glorious Nosebleed”, “Strange Terrain”, “Stop the F*ckin’ Car””, and “The Great Golden Baby”. Right before Anthony got down, I raised my fist and got a fist bump from him (as if the interview wasn’t enough). They encored with “Get Out” and “Lazarus”, to the delight of the entire crowd. The Interview VM: Why did you choose to write the album [so quickly], then self produce it? AG: It was written over a couple months, but it was definitely the fastest-written album that Circa’s ever done, and the self producing thing…whenever we write songs we just demo them ourselves, and it got to the point that the demos were sounding really, really good…so we just decided [to] try to find a studio in the area, and we have buddies of ours that work in this great studio…called Studio 4…all these legends have recorded there, and they let us get some really cheap time and we went in… they managed to do the record in like two and a half weeks. So it was like the best thing ever. VM: I bet it was kind of hell trying to do that all [so quickly] though. AG: I mean, it wasn’t that hard…We worked really long hours, just because of all of our attention spans. I felt like we had to do that. We enjoy it- it wasn’t like, hellish. Not doing this with a producer sort of gave us the freedom to try a bunch of different things, and we were on our own dime, so if we stayed real late, or if we needed to we didn’t feel reluctant to keep going. VM: I’ve noticed that you guys are definitely trying to hone in on more of the raw sound, like how you would sound live versus studio-produced. Has there been any kind of fan reaction that you guys have noticed? AG: Nobody’s really said anything about the quality of the record being bad. I’ve heard a lot of people just say that it sounds more like us than most of the other records. The other records were glossier. I feel a producer does a record, and they are almost more concerned about how it’s going to sound to their producer buddies than it’s going to sound to the artists’ fans. I think our fans are used to coming to the show, and they hear the vocals a little flat or a little sharp at times, because of whatever reason…that’s what makes it feel good, you know…that’s what makes it feel warm. It’s the same reason why people listen to vinyl, because it’s not a perfect sound. VM: How do you feel about the sound on this album compared to your others? AG: It’s hard to say, because I feel like every album is a different, newer chapter in your life, so you go back to the thing you were writing about when you were 22 or 23, and you were like…. ‘Yeah, I was 22 or 23. I love everything.’ There’s not one song that we’ve written that I can’t sing that I feel is not cool. Obviously this album feels closer because it’s dealing with stuff that’s going on right now. But then in a year’s time the songs will all take on a different meaning, and that’s just how it grows. It grows, and it changes. VM: I know you alluded to it, but what was your motivation and inspiration for the album? AG: So many things…my dad got real sick- that’s kinda what “The Lottery” is about… I kinda hate it when people are like ‘what inspires you?’, because there are so many things. It’s such a hard question to answer, because there are so many things that inspire me- like my relationships with the guys in the band, with my family, just with you guys, the people that come to the shows and stuff- that’s all what this record is really about. VM: That’s awesome. I guess we will take it back a little bit- what kind of music did you grow up with? AG: Bands like Touché [Amoré] and Balance [& Composure]- listening to music like that. VM: Can you list a few? AG: Aw man… Quicksand, Handsome, Burning Airlines, At the Drive In, Cave In… Cave In was a huge band… Braid, The Get Up Kids, Falling Forward, Code 7, This Day Forward. I loved Nirvana…loved Nirvana. The first album I actually got was a Metallica album. The second album I ever got was Nevermind. I was 15 when I got Nevermind; it was a music thrift shop, like a used CD was 15 bucks… so much money. VM: So how did you become involved with music? Was it just through those bands/did you have any family members that were musically inclined? AG: I was just hanging out in places as a kid. We would just go places to hang out, and I found this skate park near my house that bands would play out of every weekend, and we started going there…wherever there would be a show- a local show or local bands- I was there. And then just tried starting a band. I met some people and put a band together and made, like, a grindcore band, where we just made noise. We wrote stuff- there were songs! VM: What was it called? AG: It was called Audience of One. Then that band started and sort of became like a grindcore, hardcore band until it had songs and singing and stuff. I don’t know how it shifted. It was never one thing. It was just like…we started out with this one drummer, and he was a crazy metal drummer. He couldn’t be in the band anymore, because he couldn’t go out like past 11. So we had this other guy come in that liked more of the music we liked- like indie rock and stuff, and we just started jamming. It was awesome. VM: So from there, how did you transfer into Circa? AG: I don’t know. I really don’t know. I just played music all the time with people I knew…Somebody in California had heard some of my stuff- the guys in Saosin had heard my stuff that I had done at home, and some buddies of mine that were out there were like, ‘Yo, you should come out and try out for our band.’ So I went out there and tried out, and then within the next four days recorded that EP that I did with them. Then, moved out there a couple months later to start touring. I was like, ‘this is great. These guys wanna start a band and go on tour, and there’s record labels, and there’s California and stardust.’ I just wanted to go out there and be a vagabond, and my parents were like, ‘the f*ck’s the matter with you? You can’t sing. You can’t do any of this. You don’t know what you’re doing.’ And I was like, ‘yeah, I know, but I’m gonna do it anyway…if you guys are really supportive, then I’m gonna go do this. You have to trust me.’… I was 20. And I moved out there, and ever since then I’ve been doing music. VM: That’s awesome. [Marissa: That reminds me of us, just always going to local shows]. AG: Yeah, that’s the best. You just go…and… have you guys ever read The Celestine Prophecy? VM: No, but we probably should. AG: You ought to just follow your heart; follow your instincts that lead you down good paths of beautiful things and light and all the stuff you want. You’ll get it. VM: It’s true. So what made you want to come outside and play a mini acoustic set for us? I know most bands don’t do that. AG: Ryan [Russell] has a website where he has this thing called Nervous Energies…he films bands playing, and he asked where we wanted to do it, and we were like, ‘let’s just go outside and play for the kids.’ He was like, ‘no one’s ever done that on the site before,’ and I was like, ‘then we are definitely doing it now.’ VM: I think that is really awesome, because that breaks the barrier that some bands have with their fans. It’s kind of like ‘we are too good, too untouchable’. You guys playing outside made it personal. AG: It’s weird. I think if there’s anything that we as a band have to people is that we are just working class dudes that are able to continue to play music for you…There’s not some difference between you and your favorite band… But they worked really hard and sacrificed whatever they had to get to where they are…you’re going to have to cut comforts or whatever. I know I slept on so many floors with so many weirdos and crashed in people’s houses and was such a pain in the ass to deal with…but it was worth it. VM: So true. What do you enjoy besides music? AG: My kids… I hear guys with kids say, ‘oh, once you get married and have children, life’s over…you won’t have a life anymore. It’s all about their life,’ and I couldn’t disagree with them more. I feel like I never really had a life until them. I just love them so much. I miss them so much…When I’m here I don’t have to worry…about anyone but myself, and I’m pretty low maintenance. I’m smelly; I might not be clean for a couple days. I don’t have to clean anyone’s diaper or anything like that…. And I would rather be cleaning people’s diapers. VM: I imagine you’re kinda tugged both ways. Like when you are touring, you miss them, but when you are home, do you miss traveling and playing shows? AG: I love playing. It’s my favorite thing in the world. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really loved like that before I had the children. It gives you this insane high that I still haven’t found anywhere else. It’s way harder than any drug I’ve ever done, and I’ve done a LOT of drugs. I love it, and I feel no pain when I’m doing it…It’s awesome…I still get that adrenaline rush from it. I still feel incredible about it. Right now, today, I’m having a little bit of a rough time being away. My perspective on it is a little bit skewed, because I feel things with an intensity with a manic type of feel…You just have to not be a f*cking weirdo about it, and I’ve just been being a weirdo about it today. When I hear people complain about being on tour or missing people or whatever, my normal reaction has just been, ‘f*ck you. You can get out of the way and let like the thousands of millions of other people that wanna do it and have that commitment- you can let them do it’. I’m sure there’s a bunch of people that would leave their kids alone for six weeks to go out and do this. VM: Well we are really stoked to see you play! AG: I can’t wait. I f*cking can’t wait. I can’t believe I have to wait until 10 o’clock… Beautiful man http://vinylmag.org/2012/10/05/backstage-interview-with-anthony-green-of-circa-survive/

  9. QUOTE(Jon @ Dec 1 2008, 10:48 PM) 197092[/snapback] Can anyone compile a timeline of every band Anthony has been in with years of activity? I would really love to know. Let me know if you know of any legitimate changes that need be made. I use the OLG skin, so to see this post as i see it, [things line up better] switch it up for a minute, if need be.
