Circa Survive announced today that they will be doing a 7″ inch split with Sunny Day Real Estate for Record Store day. Circa, whom have stated that emo-alt rockers of the past have been major influences, are releasing the mellow track Bad Heart. The track was originally a B-side to its most recent LP release Violent Waves.
Brian Ekstrom , guitarist for Circa Survive stated the following:
I went to see a few of the Sunny Day Real Estate shows when they toured in 2009 and I knew they’d written and recorded at least one song during that time. I got Jeremy Enigk’s info from a mutual friend and emailed him asking if they had anything planned with the track. I knew they were on a hiatus and I hated the idea of that song never being released. Jeremy spoke with the other guys who all seemed interested to do the split I had I proposed. We had a B-side we’d been sitting on that had a mellower vibe which seemed to balance their more rocking song in a way that another upbeat jam might not have. I couldn’t be more happy that this is happening. I honestly think this one of the best songs Sunny Day has ever written and I’m really happy that fans are going to get to hear it.
Lipton Witch, is the first track released by Sunny Day Real Estate in the past couple years. The release is limited to about 2,400 copies so get up early and get one.
