RUSSIAN CIRCLES (USA) 
AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2014

Russian Circles return to Australia this April/May for shows in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in support of their latest masterwork Memorial.

Hailing from Chicago, the instrumental trio have been spent the last decade crafting their own niche atmospheric and entrancing take on heavy music, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with a guitar, bass, drums and lots of volume.

There are plenty of metal-leaning instrumental bands who dial up big climaxes, but you'd be hard-pressed to find one that creates such an array of textures and emotions with so little. - Pitchfork

Last here in 2012 in support of their fourth LP Empros, Russian Circles’ live show is something to behold. Brian Cook has one of the most visceral bass sounds you’ll ever hear. Guitarist Mike Sullivan is a master of the looping, building layer upon layer of dense riffs with what looks like effortless precision. Meanwhile, drummer Dave Turncrantz defines the mood, alternating between controlled precision and rhythmic chaos. 

Memorial is the first landmark post-metal release since Isis’ Panopticon, Russian Circles’ greatest achievement, and unquestioningly one of 2013’s true artistic masterpieces. - PopMatters

On their fifth record, Memorial, Russian Circles push the polarities of their sound, creating a record that’s as reflective as it is unsettling, and cementing the band’s position as legitimate peers of genre innovators like Isis and Neurosis. The valleys are deeper and the peaks higher, and with the addition of synthesizers and strings, the three-piece tap into the meditative territory explored by the likes of Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Memorial demands total immersion, but Russian Circles' sonic world is a welcoming one. Right now, few bands conjure such vital and nourishing food for the imagination. – The Guardian
