After their awesome performance at Out of the Crowd Festival in 2015, Chicago based Post Rockers Russian Circles are back at Kulturfabrik!
At the end of 2014, Chicago trio Russian Circles celebrated the 10-year anniversary of their first show. A decade is a long time for any band to persevere, let alone a band that mines the relatively unmarketable niche of protracted instrumental dirges. But the band persistently expand his creative boundaries by working with a wider swath of sounds and structures. With their sixth album Guidance (2016), Russian Circles carry on in their quest to conjure multi-dimensional dramatic instrumental narratives and to scout out new textures from their respective instruments. Songs aren’t constructed out of highbrow concepts, they’re forged out of gut instinct and base emotional response. Russian Circles use Guidance to continue examining the polarity of quiet and loud, complexity and simplicity, ugliness and beauty. They released their seventh studio album, Blood Year in 2019.
