Massachusetts post-rockers Caspian have set January 24th as the official street date for their new album, On Circles, through Triple Crown Records (pre-order). The impending LP’s first single, “Flowers of Light,” has been unleashed and can be streamed at the end of this post.

“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 regarding the recording of 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.”

On Circles marks the most organic writing and recording sessions in Caspian‘s 15-year history,” adds a press release. “Together for four weeklong songwriting sessions, the band opted for music gleaming with visceral impact instead of over-thought tangles, over-arching concepts and drawn-out crescendos.”
