In a recent interview with Circle Takes the Square guitarist/vocalist Drew Speziale, it was mentioned that the band is currently at work on the much anticipated followup to 2004's critically lauded As the Roots Undo. Speziale mentioned the following:
Yes, we are working on a new record. It will be [a] full-length, and epic. And when I say epic, I mean it.
Other mentions regarding the writing of the new songs included:
I think our tastes have evolved in the last few years and I'm excited to see what effect that has on our new songs. The most satisfying elements for me in the past have been the more experimental aspects of Circle, and or intention is to keep an open mind, musically, as we always have. We'll see what comes of it.
No tentative release is yet planned for the album, but speculative sources say early 2007.
