Caspian Returns with On Circles Jan 24, 2020

Caspian Returns With New Album On Circles
For January 24, 2020

Caspian, the symphonic Massachusetts-based band who have been dubbed “the most regal of the instrumental new rock school” (Pitchfork) and post-rock cosmonauts (Spin), return with their first album in over four years, releasing On Circles on Jan. 24 via Triple Crown Records.

The band gives fans an early preview of the eight-song, 46-minute album, streaming the song “Flowers of Light” (http://smarturl.it/caspiantheband). Pre-orders, which include a highly limited 180 gram black vinyl variation as well as a green/blue offering, are available now via the Triple Crown Records’ webstore (https://store.triplecrownrecords.com/oncircles).

“I’ve grown weary of reading about bands discuss the renewing, rehabilitative properties their most recent [album] has had on them,” says guitarist/keyboardist Philip Jamieson of the mindset the band had going into recording On Circles. “They incur corrosion, come close to running out of gas, descend into the dark abyss, and finally emerge on the other side with a record that has given them crystal clear perspective and a confident path forward. On Circles is not that record.”

Instead, this majestic collision of post-rock, metal, shoegaze, electronics, noise, minimalism and ambient music is an existential meditation, an acceptance of the cyclical nature of both life and career. Recorded at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pa., by producer Will Yip (Code Orange, Defeater, Quicksand, Turnstile), On Circles marks the most organic writing and recording sessions in Caspian’s 15-year history. Together for four weeklong songwriting sessions, the band opted for music gleaming with visceral impact instead of over-thought tangles, over-arching concepts and drawn-out crescendos.

The news of On Circles’ impending release finds Caspian preparing for the most extensive touring the sextet has done in recent years: heading to China in December, followed by the band’s first visit to Western North America in three years and a newly announced swing down the east coast.
