RUSSIAN CIRCLES Stream Second Single “Mota” from Looming ‘Guidance’ LP

Chicago post-metal/rock trio Russian Circles have premiered their forthcoming album’s second single, “Mota.”



As they prepare for the release of their highly-anticipated sixth studio album, Guidance, on August 5th via Sargent House, celebrated Chicago post-metal/rock trio Russian Circles have premiered the album’s second single, “Mota.”

On Guidance, 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. Nor was the band interested in testing their fans’ patience or securing a new broader audience with a radical reinvention. Instead, Russian Circles use Guidance to continue examining the polarity of quiet and loud, complexity and simplicity, ugliness and beauty. Russian Circles’ guitarist Mike Sullivan, drummer Dave Turncrantz, and bassist Brian Cook, with the help of engineer/co-producer Kurt Ballou, were able to capture a broad tonal palette and wide array of emotional motifs into a cohesive journey through the tumultuous corners of human existence.

Guidance Track Listing:

02. Vorel
