Leak of the Week: Russian Circles
Our first artist 'Leak of the Week' is Russian Circles, a three-peice instrumental post-rock/ post-metal band hailing from Chicago, IL. The band plays epic, sprawling music which runs the gamut of heavy discordant metal to soft delicate passages. Well known for their energetic live show, Russian Circles have toured with the likes of Boris, Isis, Red Sparowes, and have made appearances at SXSW from 2006 - 2008 and Bonnaroo in 2009. They were also the opening act for Tool on their first tour of the UK in 2007. And, in case you were wondering, their name is taken from a drill exercise used in hockey.
Check out their amazing performance from Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest in 2011.
