Circle Takes the Square tease new album

Seven years ago, Savannah natives Circle Takes the Square released As the Roots Undo..., a dense, apocalyptic, and crushingly heavy album, and unquestionably one of the finest post-hardcore releases of the decade. And when it seemed like the band was about to receive some of the mainstream success they deserved, they just sort of...stopped. There was no formal breakup announcement, but there were no announcements or tour dates since 2007. Mostly, fans had given up on anything new from the band, especially after three of the four members settled down and got married.

But earlier this year, the band launched a Kickstarter campaign intended to fund a new album, and within a month or two, the band had raised 10 grand more than the $2,500 they were hoping for. Now it looks like that money has been put to good use, as the band released a short Youtube video spotlighting clips from their upcoming record Decompositions Part I.

The band has disabled embedding on the video, but you should check out the sneak preview on Youtube. It's short, but seriously good. The band hasn't announced a release date for the record yet, but whenever it is, it can't come soon enough.
