They are hotly tipped to be the next big things on the alt rock scene and everything we hear about this Pennsylvanian quartet appears to be wildly positive.

With new album Blue Sky Noise released on Atlantic Records in the UK next month and a July headline tour in the bag this could be the summer which sees Circa Survive hit the big time on this side of the Pond.

With a string of high profile support slots in the bag – this lot have shared a stage with everyone from My Chemical Romance to Against Me! and The Gaslight Anthem to Coheed And Cambria – it’s high time one of the America’s hottest names gains due recognition.

And the follow-up to 2007’s Top 25 Billboard release On Letting Go already appears capable of giving frontman Anthony Green and his pals a timely shot in the arm in a territory yet to warm to Circa Survive’s considerable charms. The band kicks off its UK headline tour in Cardiff on July 12 and a full list of dates follows:
