"Empros is one of the most viscerally exciting and completely entertaining albums I've heard in a long time. There is perfection in the air and the battle for album of the year just heated up again." 10/10 rating -- Iann Robinson, Crave Online

"It's not a stretch to say it's the band's best album yet." -- Rock-A-Rolla

Chicago trio Russian Circles release the first of a three part live in-studio video series today. The clip is for the song "309" from the band's recent album, Empros. The live sessions were engineered and mixed by Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Big Business) at Entourage Studios in North Hollywood. The video is the debut of a new live in-studio sessions series by Sargent House in conjunction with Watch VIDEO HERE (or, alternate Vimeo link).

Russian Circles also launch North American and Australian/New Zealand headlining dates beginning next week and running well into Fall 2012. The band will be supported by Sargent House family bands Chelsea Wolfe and Marriages in North America and Eagle Twin down under. Russian Circles drummer Dave Turncrantz will pull double-duty drumming for Marriages on all dates. Please see complete dates below (or, get full show details here.)

This continues Russian Circles' already lengthy treks in support of their critically praised new album Empros. SPIN Magazine recently featured a full album stream of Empros. The band also recently premiered an MP3 from the album via The song, "Mladek" is available to listen/download HERE.

Empros is Russian Circles' first full-length to be released worldwide exclusively via Sargent House, the band's longtime management company and record label that had previously released only the vinyl editions of its three prior albums. It was released worldwide on LP, CD and Download on October 25th, 2011.
