Philadelphia’s Circa Survive has just inked a deal with Sumerian Records. Their first release with the label will be a deluxe edition of their most recent effort Violent Waves. The set is scheduled for September 9th and will include a DVD capturing their performance at The Shrine in Los Angeles last December. Below is a trailer for the upcoming release.

Vocalist Anthony Green said of the signing:

“We are so happy to be a part of the Sumerian family. To be able to have the same creative freedom as we did on our own plus the benefits of having their team helping us spread our music and message is a dream scenario.”

Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen commented:

“Today is one of the happiest and fulfilling days of my career and I think I speak for our entire staff when sharing that sentiment. Having Circa Survive join the Sumerian family is a dream come true. Their passion and approach of artistic transcendence as a band is exactly what we continue to strive for with Sumerian as a brand.
Their progressive, ethereal songwriting that conveys emotion in such a unique way has built them an incredible cult following while always staying true to themselves, which is the definition of musical success in my mind. Sumerian is honored to play a part in their career and vision. We hope to help them achieve even bigger goals while bringing their music to more new ears worldwide.”
