Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green has a pretty expressive voice, and while it’s high pitch often gets him and his band lumped in with emo, it’s more than that. With his Studio 4 Acoustic Session album coming out, he’s released a song that appears on the album online – a cover of Deftones’ “Diamond Eyes.” While that song heralded the band’s return without singer Chi Cheng, who was still in a coma following a car accident, it was a ballsy and heavy return for the band. While Green’s is decidedly less so, the soaring chorus originally sung by Chino Moreno remains the anchor of the song, and if you like either Circa or Deftones, you’ll want to give this a listen. Studio 4 Acoustic Session will be released on May 13th and can be preordered here.
