Anthony Green of Circa Survive interview / Aquarian

Anthony Green is perhaps best known as the charismatic singer of Circa Survive, but the musician’s name holds up well on its own. During some time off from Circa Survive, Green holed up and created his first solo album, Avalon, which collects songs from the past few years and offers them to the world in a cohesive, conceptualized package. Green discusses the making of the album and the future plans for Circa.

What motivated you to do a solo record?
We had time off and these songs were burning a hole in my pocket. I almost felt like I couldn’t write properly without getting rid of them. I had to digest and shit them out before I was able to actually consume any more songs. I just felt like I had to get them out of my system and this was the perfect time to do it. I’ve kinda been putting it off for the last couple years because I had other stuff I had to focus on so timing-wise it was perfect.
