Anthony Green announces new solo album

saosin2016

If you’re a fan of Anthony Green and/or any of his other projects, then you know for a fact that the singer is always musically busy. Earlier this year, the Circa Survive frontman rejoined Saosin for their brand new album, Along the Shadow, and a tour in support of the new record. Even with an across-country trek, don’t expect Green to take much time off before launching into a brand new adventure. On Wednesday (July 13), the frontman announced the pending release for this new solo album.

The record, Green’s fourth solo album, will be titled Pixie Queen; a direct reference to the frontman’s nickname for his wife which he uses all the time on social media. The new album is set to be released on Sept. 9 through Memory Music. In conjunction with the new album announcement, the musician also released the music video for the album’s lead single, “You’ll Be Fine.”

“The song was put together with parts that I had since before James was born,” he explains about how the song came together. “I was terrified about being a bad father, and I knew I was a bad husband so I was dealing with a lot of fear around that.” Watch the music video for “You’ll Be Fine below.

Pre-orders for Pixie Queen are currently available here. In support of the new album, Green will once again hit the road this fall. The United States trek will feature support from Mat Kerekes and Secret Space. The complete list of tour dates can be seen below as well as the cover art and track listing for Pixie Queen.

Saosin Perform New Song During Recent Show

wpid-saosin_2014.jpeg

Saosin’s reunion last year at Skate and Surf has led to major steps forward with former vocalist Anthony Green rejoining the band for a few shows.

Late last year, the band announced the former singer would be joining them for four tour stops in early 2015, what fans probably didn’t expect was for a new song to debut live during the short reunion tour.

During their stop at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA this past Monday, the band debuted a new song live and thanks to someone backstage, we have not only the new song performed live, but we also have the complete show. The new song can be heard around the 12:30 mark.

Warning, it’s a little hard to hear Green’s vocals over all the instrumentals.

As if that wasn’t enough, somewhere in the video, Green tells the audience that Saosin will have some “new shit for you guys real soon.”

Cue the excitement of fans of the group with Green as vocalist.

While we aren’t sure about a lot things like the name of the new song (which marks the third new song with Green the band has performed), when this projected new shit will be released, or even if they will head out on tour once again, it’s something for die-hards to look forward to.

Watch Anthony Green Cover Deftones, Vance Joy

Just a couple of weeks after wrapping up a tour with Circa Survive, Anthony Green headed back out on the road for a couple of days with Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties (Dan Campbell of The Wonder Years) and I Can Make a Mess (Ace Enders of The Early November), and Elder Brother for a short holiday tour.

During the Boston stop of the tour at the Paradise on Dec. 26, Green treated the audience to not one, but two covers that evening.

The first of the two songs was a cover of the Deftones’ “Diamond Eyes” from 2010’s Diamond Eyes. The second song was Vance Joy’s “Riptide” from his debut record, Dream Your Life Away.

The “Riptide” cover seemed to be a theme during the holiday tour for Green because there’s footage of him covering the song again during the tour’s stop at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey on Dec. 30.

Check out the video of both songs being covered in Boston below.

Green will once again hit the road for his four-day stint fronting Saosin once again. Those upcoming tour dates can be seen below.

Jan 19 – Santa Ana, CA @The Observatory
Jan 23 – Dallas,TX @ Southside Ballroom
Jan 24 – Austin,TX @ Emo’s
Jan 25 – Houston,TX @ House of Blues

Listen to Anthony Green’s Christmas Tracks

image

The holidays are almost on our doorsteps which means that many of our favorite bands have been releasing tracks to celebrate the joyous occasion as a way to give back to those who have supported them. Bayside, Memphis May Fire, and Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams are just some who have released holiday tracks in the last week.

Now, we can add Circa Survive frontman, Anthony Green to that growing list. Green, who we are pretty sure never sleeps, release two tracks for Christmas yesterday; “Better Half’ and “Christmas Waltz.”

Both songs are featured on Green’s two-song EP fittingly titled, Winter Songs which is currently available for purchase on his Bandcamp.

Both songs can be streamed below.

As it has been said before, Green probably doesn’t know what vacation is because his first month of 2015 is already filled with tour dates.

First he’ll be going on a five-day tour with Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties (Dan Campbell of The Wonder Years) and I Can Make a Mess (Ace Enders of The Early November), and Elder Brother beginning, this Friday (Dec. 26).

Then, in mid-January, Green will re-join his former band Saosin for a four-day tour.

See, he never sleeps.

Saosin Announce More Tour Dates with Anthony Green

The Saosin reunion that fans only thought would last a couple of day will continue, at least according to the band.

At the beginning of the week, the California-based band gave clues that more tour dates featuring former vocalist Anthony Green would be revealed and yesterday afternoon, they did just that revealed a couple of more tour dates with Green at the microphone.

Earlier this year, Green gave fans of the band the biggest gift, ever, when he reunited with the band he once fronted for Skate and Surf Fest.

The newly announced tour dates feature three date in Texas while one on the West Coast.

Tickets for the show will go on sale tomorrow, Dec. 6. Check out the tour dates below.

Jan 19 – Santa Ana, CA @The Observatory
Jan 23 – Dallas,TX @ Southside Ballroom

With this announcement, it looks like Green has no intention of slowing down. His current band, Circa Survive, recently released their new album Descensus and are currently in the middle of a tour to support that. The tour which features support from Title Fight and Pianos Become the Teeth will wrap up on Dec. 14 in Philadelphia at Union Transfer.

Anthony Green Records New Song for Suicide Prevention

image

Suicide is the leading cause of deaths among young people, so even though there are numerous resources out there for people who are contemplating suicide, it never seems like there’s enough when someone close to you takes their own life unexpectedly.

With the recent death of Robin Williams ion which he took his own life, you start to realize that the signs are not always there for people who are contemplating taking such a big step and ending their lives. Even the person who seems to have their life all together might not be as put together as they seem.

In a way, Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green is trying to do his part by selling two new songs, “East Coast Winter” and “I’m So Sorry For Everything I’ve Ever Done” which are available on his bandcamp account, with all proceeds from the sales going directly to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.

“I’m excited to share these two new songs with everyone. Music has always been my way of dealing with some of the loneliest and darkest times in my life and these songs helped me ring out some serious stuff that was going on in my head. I share them with you for free in hopes that if you are able you will help support the American association for suicide prevention. 100% of the donations will go to them. I’ve had to deal first hand with the debilitating effects of suicide and depression is something I think effects everyone in one way or another. Please help spread the word about this organization.”

Aside from his contribution to the foundation, it was just announced that Circa Survive will be releasing a CD/DVD deluxe edition of their fourth studio album Violent Waves through Sumerian Records on September 9. Pre-orders are currently up on Sumerian’s merchandise site.

When Skate and Surf Fest announced that two big surprises would be hitting the festival’s weekend-long event, the feeling was excitement. When they unveiled two big reunions were planned, the excitement double. And when they finally announced that one of the reunions would feature Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green returning to Saosin, the feelings went through the roof.

Last night, the newly reunited band took the stage in Philadelphia marking the first time since Green’s departure (give or take ten years) that the full line-up has been on stage together. Thanks to footage that was recorded by someone at the show, it seems that the band treated fans to some oldies, but also two new tracks.

“Lost Symphonies”:

“Translating the Name”:

“Mookie’s Last Christmas”:

New Song:

“3rd Measurement in C”

“I Can Tell There Was an Accident in Here Earlier”:

New Song (or maybe just an improvised jam session):

“Seven Years”:

“They Perch on Their Slits”:

“Seven Years (Encore)”:

Saosin to Head Out on Mini-Tour with Anthony Green

saosin

Fans of Saosin, it looks like the reunion featuring former frontman Anthony Green was not just a one shot deal, because it was announced today that the original line-up will be heading out on a mini-tour.

The news of that the Circa Survive frontman would be returning to his former band broke a few months back when Skate and Surf Festival organizers revealed that Saosin would be performing with Green on vocals. For those wanting to see the original line-up, but couldn’t find a way to get to Asbury Park, NJ for the two-day festival seemed to be out of luck, but their wished just might have been answered.

All morning, there had been a rumors on the internet that the original line-up would be taking to the touring circuit with Green in tow. Green confirmed the mini-tour this afternoon when he posted on his Instagram a four-day tour schedule beginning with Skate and Surf on May 17.

For now, the other three dates on the posted schedule are all taking place in California (one in Pomona, one in Los Angeles and one in San Diego), but where else would you have a mini-tour than in your own home state?

The mini-tour and return of the original line-up comes almost eleven years after the release of their breakout EP, Translating the Name.
