Published May 17, 2016Three years after issuing their Memorial, Chicago post-metal instrumentalists Russian Circles have announced their phoenix-like return. The band's Guidance arrives August 5 through longtime label home Sargent House.
A press release explains that bassist Brian Cook, guitarist Mike Sullivan and drummer Dave Turncrantz's forthcoming seven-song collection was cut at Salem, MA's GodCity Studio with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Baptists). The band's sixth full-length effort is described as "their best and most realized yet in their decade-long career."
While no full song streams have yet to arrive, you can check out a bit of the record via the teaser trailer down below.
In addition to the upcoming album release, Russian Circles are hitting the road in 2016. The group head out to Vancouver next month as part of the Levitation festival and will take off on a headlining trek in August.
