Russian Circles

Chicago prog metal maestros, Russian Circles, who delivered their new album Empros via Sargent House Oct. 25, are gearing up for a November tour. Formed in 2004, the band has already delivered four full-length albums, an EP and a handful of splits and singles. The three-piece, who take their name from a hockey drill exercise, play sprawling instrumental compositions and have made appearances at Austin, Texas’ SXSW and supported Tool on their 2007 tour of the U.K. Daytonians may recognize one member of the group in particular, bassist Brian Cook. Cook joined Dayton expatriate Chris Common to fill out the rhythm section in These Arms Are Snakes (Jade Tree, Suicide Squeeze), who split up in 2010, and provided bass duties for Dayton’s Mouth of the Architect on 2006’s The Ties That Bind (Translation Loss). Russian Circles are at the Southgate House in Newport, Ky. Wednesday, Nov. 9 and Columbus’ Ravari Room Thursday, Nov. 10. Joining the group during their Ohio stops will be San Francisco’s experimental and atmospheric black metal quintet Deafheaven and post-hardcore forerunners Young Widows. Interviews with both Russian Circles and Deafheaven can be found at www.youindie.com.
