Russian Circles Announce Album Details * West Coast Dates w/ Red Sparowes

Announce "Station" Album Details * West Coast Dates with Red Sparowes!

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 full album details for the band's upcoming full-length, Station, out May 6th on Suicide Squeeze, as well as West Coast tour dates w/ Red Sparowes. See below for more information!

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. Read below for more details on the band's new album (and Suicide Squeeze debut), including cover art and track list, mp3 downloads to follow. Get ready for this one kids, it's going to be a killer.
