Russian Circles Spring Tour

Russian Circles to Debut New Material on Mini Spring Tour

Russian Circles
Chicago's illustrious instrumental trio, Russian Circles, will emerge from Midwestern hibernation for a quick jaunt through the Midwest/East Coast before heading back into the studio to record the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2008 release, Station.

For those of you who are lucky enough to catch the band on this tour, you can expect them to debut some new material.

What people have been saying about the band:

Russian Circles could have made things a lot easier on themselves. They could have followed in the footsteps of 2006's Enter and made a predictable instru-metal album that would cause fans of bands like Pelican and Isis to cream their jeans. Instead, the Chicago act have crafted an extremely diverse album that tempers headband-worthy rock riffs with shimmering guitar lines, setting Russian Circles apart from their peers. - Alternative Press Magazine

Chicago's Russian Circles purvey a kind of nĂ¼ arena rock that takes all that "tasty" '70s twin-lead-guitar huffapuffa (clean in one channel, riffarama-mama woolly mammoth in the other) and the stretches stuff out, way out, into long-ass tales from the creepy crypt that go through innumerable changes in direction and tone.- LA Weekly A sprawling mural painted in circular guitar riffs, concussive polyrhythms and lengthy melodic tangles. - The Fader
