RUSSIAN CIRCLES ANNOUNCE LIVE AT DUNK! FEST 2016 LP, DUE OUT APRIL 7th 9-song live album features tracks that encompass their extensive discography, recorded at last year’s festival in Belgium


“moody, dense and dynamic” - Rolling Stone 
"Russian Circles have made great use of post-rock most familiar's dynamic tricks—loud and quiet; stop and start, swell and subside. But they’ve never had qualms about splicing elements of everything from metal and noise-rock to krautrock and post-hardcore into their darkly dramatic, instrumental compositions." - Pitchfork
Last year, Chicago power trio Russian Circles unleashed a riling live set packed with beloved fan favorites and deep cuts at Belgium’s Dunk! Fest. Now immortalized with a nine-song live LP mixed by Dallas Thomas (Pelican) and mastered by Collin Jordan (Wovenhand, Yob), Live At Dunk! Fest 2016 impeccably captures the sonic magnitude and aural drama of a Russian Circles’ live performance.  Check out a promo clip from the album on YouTube and look for Live At Dunk! Fest 2016  to be released on April 7th digitally, on limited vinyl format April 14th; 1,000 total LP copies worldwide, with 350 copies available via Russian Circles' webstore which can be pre-ordered here
After over a decade in existence, Russian Circles have maintained a precarious creative process that has resulted in a storied and dazzling catalog exploring elements ranging from harrowing gloom and cinematic majesty to primitive bludgeoning and morose minimalism. Whereas many bands in the instrumental world are content to cruise with the lush crescendos and washed-out timbres laid out by their predecessors, Russian Circles persevere in their quest to conjure multi-dimensional, textural narratives.  Pulling tracks from 2008’s metalloid-fueled Station, 2016’s fierce and freewheelingGuidance, and every era in between, Live At Dunk! Fest 2016 ensnares the broad tonal palette and wide array of emotional motifs that have made Russian Circles a musical stalwart.
Live At Dunk! Fest 2016 is due out April 7th on digital and vinyl formats. Shortly after the completion of their current European headline tour (with Cloakroom in tow), Russian Circles will be touring in North America alongside Mastodonand Eagles of Death Metal in support of the album, continuing the band’s non-stop road schedule since last year’s release of their critically-acclaimed LP Guidance.   See all tour dates below and look for more news soon.
