RUSSIAN CIRCLES RELEASE AUDIO FOR NEW TRACK “BETRAYAL“
GNOSIS IS ARRIVING VIA SARGENT HOUSE ON 19TH AUGUST
Russian Circles have just released the audio for new song “Betrayal“. Perhaps the heaviest song on the album, “Betrayal” is a five-minute unmitigated assault and follows the first single “Conduit”. Both tracks show how the Chicago stalwarts have created their most fuming and focused work to date – an album that favours the exorcism of two years’ worth of tension over the melancholy and restraint that often coloured their past endeavours.
Forthcoming full length Gnosis eschews the varied terrain of those past works by employing a new song writing technique. Rather than crafting songs out of fragmented ideas in the practice room, full songs were written and recorded independently before being shared with other members, so that their initial vision was retained. While these demos spanned the full breadth of the band’s varied styles, the more cinematic compositions were ultimately excised in favour of the physically cathartic pieces.
Gnosis is arriving via Sargent House on 19th August. Russian Circles will also be on tour throughout 2022 and 2023; a full list of dates appears below.
