Unleash Your Rage With CIRCA ARCANA’s New Video “Switchblades and Fistfights” Off Forthcoming EP “F.U.C.K.Y.O.U.”
American four-piece metalcore act, Circa Arcana, from El Paso, Texas brings forth a mixture of melodic aggressive vocals, bouncy breakdowns, and hard-hitting riffs. They released their first single “Esoteric” in 2021 and an EP “Bridget Vīgintī” in 2022. This year they are following it up with “F.U.C.K.Y.O.U.”, which they declare is the most unforgiving, aggressive, and meanest recording of the year. They have a new video out for the single “Switchblades and Fistfights” a high-octane song that will get your blood pumping. Vocalist Kevin Cangas comments on the rowdy track:
“It’s straight up a fighting song. This song was made for people to hit each other too, the perfect song to be in the mosh pit for. I feel like our music still has, from the first album to this one, some cool creepy sounds that happen which stems from our love for horror. I’m a huge Twilight Zone fan, always have been, and I’ve always been able to do that voice. We were trying to figure out the intro for the album and we were like fuck it, let’s do it like a Twilight Zone intro. And it was funny, everyone thought it was good but I said nah, put a rattlesnake rattle right there and I did the voice on top of it and it prepares you to get your feelings hurt by this EP. I fucking love it.”
According to the band, the first EP was very emo, more of a heartfelt fan-to-fan moment, and with this new record, after touring and seeing how shitty people are, they wrote this one in a dark place. Music runs in their veins., and they bring a mixture of melodic, aggressive vocals, and hard-hitting riffs.
The release date for the EP “F.U.C.K.Y.O.U.” is yet to be announced, but in the meantime, fans can get their adrenaline fix with the single “Switchblades and Fistfights”, which is recommended for fans of Wage War, We Came As Romans and Attila.

“this EP swept me up in a wave of nostalgic feelings with its mixture of heavy guitar riffs, melodic choruses, crushing vocals, and the occasional somber and more emotional moments. The tracks on this EP showcase everything that got me into this style of music” – Mike Leighton, Metal Epidemic (EP Review)
“Since 2021, Circa Arcana has been working the grind: they opened up for Limp Bizkit at Rebel Rock & went back to perform in Florida this year, April 23rd, to perform at the Earthday Birthday 2022 festival. That was the same festival that groups such as Godsmack, Three Days Grace, Black Veil Brides, Ice Nine Kills & Jelly Roll performed.” – Daniel Paulus, KLAQ
“Needless to say, Circa Arcana hit all the right notes here, so if you’re looking for something familiar yet fresh, this might be the one for you.” – New Fury Media
“Circa Arcana’s debut EP was released on February 18 for the world to hear. With a cacophony of breakdowns juxtaposed with infectious choruses that are easy to sing along to, the EP is a fast-paced rollercoaster to the face with the songs flowing together and showing a strong diversity in their music styles.” – HEAVY Magazine
“Circa Arcana presents a solid first effort and is recommended for fans of Wage War, Like Moths To Flames and We Came As Romans.” Keith Clement, – Metalheads Forever Magazine
“a nice melding of the emo and hardcore styles. The 5 song EP shows Circa Arcana performing at the top of their abilities. Bridget Viginti is a nice showcase of some hardcore influenced tracks that are given an injection of melody… There are sing-along moments to be found here and they blend in nicely. There is catchiness and it leads to memorability.” – Heavy Music Headquarters
“A short and sweet explosion of American Metalcore, ranging from personal struggles with addiction and personal demons to stories of occult legends and disassociated dreams.” – The Headbanging Moose
“Drawing very much on the spirit of metalcore pioneers such as Killswitch and 36 Crazyfists, while also strongly referencing latter day proponents such as BMTH and We Came As Romans, Circa Arcana could well prove to be one of those bands that make you re-evaluate your assessment of what you believed to be a dying sub-genre by bringing a whole new level of excitement and re-invigoration to it. Fuck, they even throw anthemic power punk into the eclectic recipe, with obtuse sidebar of ‘Luna’.” – Uber Rock
