Caspian, the symphonic Massachusetts-based band who have been dubbed “the most regal of the instrumental new rock school” (Pitchfork) and post-rock cosmonauts (Spin), return with their first album in over four years, releasing On Circles on Jan. 24 via Triple Crown Records.
Caspian gives fans an early preview of the eight-song, 46-minute album, streaming the song “Flowers of Light” (http://smarturl.it/caspiantheband). Pre-orders, which include a highly limited 180 gram black vinyl variation as well as a green/blue offering, are available now via the Triple Crown Records’ webstore (https://store.triplecrownrecords.com/oncircles).
“I’ve grown weary of reading about bands discuss the renewing, rehabilitative properties their most recent [album] has had on them,” says guitarist/keyboardist Philip Jamieson of the mindset the band had going into recording On Circles. “They incur corrosion, come close to running out of gas, descend into the dark abyss, and finally emerge on the other side with a record that has given them crystal clear perspective and a confident path forward. On Circles is not that record.”
