Singer Anthony Green left Saosin on the eve of that band's ascension to major-label status and formed Circa Survive in his home base, the Philly suburb of Doylestown, in 2004. With a strong exploratory streak amid decidedly melodic emo and the wide-open spaces of heartland rock (occasionally the guitars twang), Circa Survive add a progressive feel to the emo sound, not so far from The Mars Volta and just as close to the radio-friendly trappings of Fall Out Boy. Marked by inventive guitar freak-outs and old-school pedal hopping, Circa Survive further set themselves apart with Green's high-register, distinctive vocals. The band has a trio of albums under its belt: 2005's Juturna, 2007's On Letting Go and 2010's Blue Sky Noise.

Live at Metro Theatre
Runtime: 1 hr 8 minThe California-based quartet, who've also been busy of late making high-profile main stage appearances at the Coachella, Reading & Leeds and Bamboozle festivals, have followed the New Pantheon Award-nominated Vheissu's radical metamorphosis with The Alchemy Index, a four-volume collection spread between two releases comprised of four EPs, each devoted to one of the classical elements in nature—fire, water, earth and air—with each EP sonically and thematically tailored to evoke the atmosphere inherent in its corresponding element. This fall marks the release of the first two volumes of the series—Fire & Water—while Earth & Air are scheduled for a spring debut. For Thrice, it's the realization of a year-long process of writing and recording, which was done primarily in the band's own studio and engineered by guitarist Teppei Teranishi, without the assistance of an outside producer.
