We’re really proud of our friends Anthony, Colin, Brendan, Nick and Steve (more commonly known as Circa Survive). Last week they announced and began pre-sales of their first independently produced album – Violent Waves.
Over the years we have been on both indie and major record labels. We are thankful for the opportunities we’ve had with them but it’s 2012 and we want to try something we’ve never done before. We produced this record ourselves. This is raw Circa Juice straight from us to you. We also paid for it with our own money; money that likely came from you buying a ticket or t-shirt over the years. All in all we have never been more deeply involved in every aspect of creating a record. – Circa Survive
Any Invisible Children + Circa Survive fan would know that to be 100% true. This past fall, we had over 90 fans donate $100+ to our Musician Coalition fundraising campaign and are being rewarded for their generosity by having their names in ‘Violent Waves’ liner notes.
In light of the album release, Invisible Children Music will be giving away 5 autographed copies of ‘Violent Waves’ throughout this week. Starting today (Monday, July 1st), check our twitter from 1-3pm PDT every afternoon for the contest-of-the-day and learn how to get your name entered into the daily drawing.* Winners will be announced by 5pm PDT on the day of each contest.**
- Kenny, Alex & Lauren
*Winners can only win one CD throughout the week, of course. Gotta share the love people.
**Should be announced by 5pm, don’t hate us if we’re a few minutes late.
