Russian Circles: Hear Instrumental Post-Metal Trio's Gripping New Song "Arluck"

Chicago band details forthcoming new album 'Blood Year' coming in August on Sargent House

Chicago-based post-metal trio Russian Circles seem to release nothing but pure, body-moving gold, and their latest track "Arluck" proves once again they dominate the instrumental scene with their unmatched musicianship and songwriting capabilities. 

Kicking off with a mighty walloping foundation from drummer Dave Turncrantz, the song quickly opens up into a hypnotizing dance of brain-tickling licks and chugging, staccato riffs. Punctuated snare slams and an unshakeable bass line from the masterful Brian Cook hold down a steady groove while guitarist Mike Sullivan's spaced-out plucking is allowed to explore, leading to an exalted segment where the bottom falls out, drawing focus before bringing back the leaden assault of the trio's combined powers. 


Along with this gorgeous track comes the announcement of a new album by the group titled Blood Year, out August 2nd via Sargent House. Pre-orders and digital pre-saves are available at this location

To gear up for the release, Russian Circles will hit the road this summer for an extensive North American tour alongside acts like Windhand and FACS. See below for dates and the new record's track list.
