The post Russian Circles Announce New Album Gnosis and 2022 North American Tour, Share “Conduit”: Stream appeared first on Consequence.

Russian Circles are returning with a new album, Gnosis, arriving August 19th. The band has also announced tour dates and shared the lead single, “Conduit.”

In support of Gnosis, Russian Circles are heading out on a fall North American headlining tour, followed by a co-headlining European run with Cult of Luna set for Spring 2023. The North American outing kicks off September 15th in Minneapolis and runs through a homecoming show on November 12th in Chicago. Rezn will support the second half of the itinerary. Get tickets via Ticketmaster.

The instrumental post-metal trio employed a new songwriting process for Gnosis. Instead of building songs out of fragments in the practice room, the band members wrote and recorded full compositions independently. These were then presented to the other members “so that their initial vision was retained.”

The album’s press release reveals that the more cinematic songs were dropped in favor of “physically cathartic pieces.” Based on the pummeling chugger that is “Conduit,” we’ll take the band at its word. At four and half minutes, it’s on the shorter side for a Russian Circles song and gets straight to the point.

Gnosis was recorded by engineer Kurt Ballou (guitarist of Converge) at his God City Studios, with Russian Circles adding additional tracking done at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago.
