Russian Circles announce dates

Chicago’s Russian Circles had one hell of a busy 2008, which included the release of their critically acclaimed new album, “Station” (Suicide Squeeze), touring non-stop with the likes of Daughters and Coheed and Cambria.

They are currently embarking on a massive European tour with friends and label-mates,These Arms Are Snakes.

Rounding out a fantastic year, Russian Circles have announced they plan to spend their holiday and New Year’s festivities on the road with alternative rock legends, CLUTCH! That’s right, one of the genre’s heaviest and most respected bands, Clutch, have hand-picked Russian Circles to join them on their brief romp around the East Coast and Mid-West.
