Mit "The Amulet" erschien letztes Jahr das sechste Album von CIRCA SURVIVE um Frontmann Anthony Green via Hopeless Records. Von ihrem kommenden Special-Release "The Amulet (Deluxe)", welches ab dem 2. November zu haben ist, stellt die Posthardcoreband unten mit "Dark Pools" einen der neuen, darauf enthaltenen Songs vor. Green kommentiert:
“I usually stay away from speaking too much about song meanings but I wanted to say that Dark Pools is for anyone who feels overwhelmed and marginalized right now. It might be from society or lawmakers to even your own family. Writing and sharing it has been such a healing experience and I hope to share some of those feelings with all of you. Thanks for listening. Defend our beautiful form."
