Russian Circles & Deafheaven European & UK Tour Kicks Off in Two Weeks Time

Yet another piece of metal tour news from the in-tray at Scribes Castle, this time concerning a great instrumental metal band. US post metal trio Russian Circles are gearing up for their extensive European tour, their first since the release of their most recent album, the critically acclaimed Empros. Empros was the first Russian Circles album to be released through Sargent House Records, although Russian Circles and Sargent House have had a longstanding relationship, with Sargent House acting as the band's management company for many years and also releasing their first three albums on Vinyl.

Coming along for the trip are US black metal band Deafheaven, personally hand picked by Russian Circles to be their direct support for the tour. Deafheaven will appear at all shows apart from the Russian date on April 15th.

For anyone unfamilar with Russian Circles, with most recent album Empros they are very well placed to take their place at the top table of ambient, gloomy, post metal with peers such as Pelican and Neurosis. Any fans of bands such as Pelican, Neurosis, ISIS, Red Sparowes or Cult Of Luna will find much to enjoy with Russian Circles, especially in a live setting. The full list of tour dates is below:
