Caspian, who recently played a pair of sold-out shows at the historic Cabot Theatre in the band’s hometown of Beverly, Mass., shares a clip of their first live performance of “Flowers of Light” (https://youtu.be/jOOukl63JhU).

The footage arrives as the band has added a new leg to their North American tour, with the first of the band’s Summer 2020 plans revealed:

June 1 Ferndale, MI The Loving Touch

June 2 Grand Rapids, MI The Pyramid Scheme

June 5 Chicago, IL Lincoln Hall

June 6 St. Paul, MN Turf Club

June 8 Denver, CO Bluebird Theatre

Tickets for the above dates are on-sale this Friday at 10 am local time. A premium package, including a ticket, exclusive patch and signed poster is available Wednesday at 9 am eastern via Caspian.band.

On Circles, the band’s fifth album and first release in over four years, arrives on Jan. 24 via Triple Crown Records. Album pre-orders, which include a highly limited 180-gram black vinyl variation as well as a green/blue vinyl offering, are available now via the Triple Crown Records’ webstore (https://store.triplecrownrecords.com/oncircles).

The eight-song album was recorded at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pa. by producer Will Yip (Code Orange, Defeater, Quicksand, Turnstile), On Circles marks the most organic writing and recording sessions in Caspian’s 15-year history. 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.

Caspian have released four albums: The Four Trees (2007), Tertia (2009), Walking Season (2012) and Dust and Disquiet (2015). Since the Beverly, Mass.-based band’s inception, they’ve earned accolade upon accolade for their sweeping, cinematic music. 2015’s Dust and Disquiet was hailed by Noisey as “the life-affirming soundtrack you need in your life,” Brooklyn Vegan exclaimed “eardrums will be blown and jaws will be dropped” upon hearing the 10-song release, while Spin described the sextet’s output as “epic, wordless orchestral swells on the lush, layered, and crushingly pretty.” Caspian is Philip Jamieson (guitar/keyboards), Erin Burke-Moran (guitar), Jonny Asburn (guitar), Jani Zubkovs (bass), Calvin Joss (guitar) and Justin Forrest (drums).
