Anthony Green was California dreamin'. In 2003, he left his hometown of Philadelphia for the golden sands of Newport Beach, where he formed Saosin. But a year later, Green exited stage east, back to Philly, where he hooked up with former This Day Forward guitarist Colin Frangicetto to start a new band: Circa Survive. In the tradition of prog-rock greats like Led Zeppelin, the four Circa Survive members found a house and shacked up together, all in the name of non-stop songwriting. The result is Juturna, a progressive mix of emo-ish post-hardcore and artfully hard-edged screamers.
