Circa Survive is an American rock band from the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, formed in 2004. The band consists of former members from Saosin, This Day Forward, and Taken.

Their third album, Blue Sky Noise, was released on April 20, 2010, on Atlantic Records to critical acclaim. After parting ways with Atlantic Records, their fourth album, Violent Waves, was released independently on August 28, 2012. Their fifth album, "Descensus" is being released by Sumerian Records on November 24, 2014.
On March 3, 2014 it was announced via Pitchfork that Circa Survive would be releasing a 7-inch vinyl record split with the band Sunny Day Real Estate for Record Store Day 2014 (April 19th).
