Russian Circles is an instrumental band based out of Chicago, Illinois. I first came across their sound when Enter came onto the scene in 2006, followed shortly thereafter with the album Station. I’ll never forget watching and re-watching this live video of their track “Harper Lewis” from the Wicker Park Festival in ’07 and settling in with amazement as Dave slayed his drum kit. It’s truly a treat.
Just a few days ago band released Memorial, their fifth studio album. Take a listen to the title track here to get a feel for one of their rare “lighter” offerings amidst the typical heavy-hitting, sludgy goodness they’re so known for.
