The incredible Circa Survive, silent for years, has come back and announced a new album, Descensus, to drop on Nov. 24 through Sumerian Records. The album will be their first since Violent Waves was released in early 2012. The band’s first album, Juturna, notched almost 160,000 copies.

Expect a new song on Oct. 27, but until then, band will be on the road with Title Fight and Pianos Become the Teeth this fall.

In other news, if you dig the album art, the artist’s name is Esao Andrews, and you can check out more of his work over on Facebook.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
