Chicago instrumental post-metallists Russian Circles have entered a recording studio today (April 1) to begin recording material for their fourth album.
Producer Brandon Curtis will helm the new collection of songs at Phantom Manor in Chicago. The album will be the band’s first full-length to be released worldwide exclusively via Sargent House.
“A lot of the mood going into this album has been reflective on the last couple years of touring. We have a ton of material,” says bassist Brian Cook. “We’re excited to get into recording and be somewhat sheltered from the outside world. We’re going to try to make the same ebb and flow of our live set happen on the record, with more constructive dynamics and dramatic bridging between songs. We want to experiment in similar ways that we did with strings and embellishments on Geneva, but we don’t want to have songs that won’t sound the same in a live setting.”
The band will be touring Europe this summer on a co-headlining run with new label mates Boris. Tour dates will be announced soon.
