CIRCA SURVIVE Premiere New Track & Video “Premonition of the Hex”

Alt rockers CIRCA SURVIVE Premiere New Song/Music Video "Premonition of the Hex"; New Full Length The Amulet Due Out 09/22 via Hopeless Records; Preorders Available Now; Co-Headlining Tour With THRICE This Fall!
CIRCA SURVIVE have shared their intense new song “Premonition of the Hex” and it’s accompanying music video. The track comes from band’s upcoming sixth full length, The Amulet, due out September 22nd from Hopeless Records.

The brooding new song twists and turns in the unique ways that only a Circa Survive track can, while Anthony Green’s distinct vocals rise and fall around his brooding words. For the “Premonition of the Hex” music video, director Josh Call took Green’s cryptically intriguing lyrics and helped develop them into an unsettling and powerful cinematic visual.

Green commented on the process saying,

“Josh, his team and I wanted to present something that was bold and visceral as a way to showcase the dangers of fundamentalism and extremism. Breaking away from a toxic and threatening situation can feel almost impossible when the insanity is dressed up as normal or socially acceptable. We are so thankful for Josh and his team for working so hard to capture this feeling.”

The “Premonition of the Hex” video is a potent example of The Amulet’s themes, which are an inextricable combination of the personal and political. The album often touches on the idea of seeking comfort in unhealthy places and the desperate need to seek the truth even when it’s challenging. Green applies this sentiment to our intimate private lives just as easily as to the current uneasy zeitgeist, capturing the sense of fear and discontent that permeates our current social climate.


Suppression makes a weight
That strips the life of everything
To scared to walk away
Down in your heart
The image of a life

You’re dying just to be there
Crying on your knees

Be weary of the things you want
( the thorn in your paw, you crave)
You can’t predict what’s coming
Your fingers from my hand
You never see the things you have
( there’s always a way, to change)
Slice up and not across
When you’re trying to make the deepest cut

Illusion makes a gape
That kills the flow of everything
To dumb to walk away
Down in your mind
You never even tried.

You’re dying just to be there. Just crying on your knees

You couldn’t say her name in a single way
You never found the time
She didn’t make a sound when she hit the ground
In the image of her life

Be weary of the things you want
( the Thorne in your paw, you crave)
You can’t predict what’s coming
Your fingers from my hand
You never see the things you have
( there’s always a way, to change)
Slice up and not across
When you’re trying to make the deepest cut
Be careful of what you desire
You can predict what’s coming
You fingers from my hand
You never give the things you want
Slice up and not across when you’re trying
To make the deepest cut
