Leaving your ultrasuccessful band to attempt to create another ultrasuccessful band has to be one of the dumbest ideas a lead singer could do these days. That is, unless your name is Anthony Green. Somehow, Green knew what he was doing when he left his band Saosin—just before inking with a major label—to give the whole thing another shot. What resulted is Circa Survive, a prog-metal band with heart and soul. C.S.’ third and latest album, Blue Sky Noise, released April 20 on Atlantic Records, is a powerful step forward, and Green’s roar is sounding better that anything he has done so far. 6000 J Street, www.myspace.com/circasurvive.
