Circa Survive - "Sharp Practice"

Circa Survive debuted "Sharp Practice" last month via an acoustic performance at a Philly radio station, but now Rolling Stone has the goods on the considerably heavier studio version. It's a history lesson for all new Circa fans, blending Blue Sky Noise's crisp production with Juturna's in-your-face aggression, and culminates in one of the catchiest choruses the band has ever penned.

Here is Anthony Green's take on the track: "It was one of the first songs we wrote for the record that was upbeat and more rocking. I remember sending it out to the rest of the band after putting the vocals on it and being so stoked on their responses. When we were recording it in the studio all the screams and shouts got added and it made the whole song so much more powerful. It's up there as one of my favorite Circa songs."

Violent Waves will get a self-release on Aug. 28th and, between this and "Suitcase", it's got a lot of promise already.
