RUSSIAN CIRCLES Announce Dates w/ Dälek and Young Widows!

Announce US Dates w/ Dälek and Young Widows!

Chicago’s Russian Circles, ably balances lovely clean-channel melodies and big-assed riffs alike. Its deft combinations of interwoven harmonies, rhythmic grooves, and nod-inducing drum work, along with its substantial ability to structure all-instrumental jams, make the standard-practice eight-minute tune feel much closer to four. - Alarm Press

A band that is destined to outdo themselves with each release. - Daytrotter

Chicago epic-rock masters RUSSIAN CIRCLES have announced a nice chunk of dates w/ avant hip-hop maestros Dälek and punk rock monsters Young Widows, in support of the band's upcoming full-length, Station, out May 6th on Suicide Squeeze.

Russian Circles have just completed the recording of Station with producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Isis). Joining Drummer Dave Turncrantz and guitarist Mike Sullivan for the recordings was Brian Cook on bass of These Arms Are Snakes, and Botch

Station's sound is huge and heavy, swirling and chugging along like a bastard child on a rampage of destruction and unlearning. Look out for more details on the band's new album (and Suicide Squeeze debut), including cover art, track list, and mp3 downloads. Get ready for this one kids, it's going to be a killer.
