Russian Circles Announce New Album ‘Blood Year’

Having literally just wrapped up their first Australian tour in half a decade, post-metal act Russian Circles has today announced their brand new album, and given us a brand new single as well.

The new album is called Blood Year, and is their first album in three years (Guardian dropped back in 2016). Along with the album announcement, they’ve given us a searing new single ‘Arluck’.

It is apparently an album that was built to perform live. In fact, the album’s press release reads “Russian Circles chose to track the foundations of the songs together in one room as complete takes without click tracks.”

They’ve also announced a North American tour, which follows their nationwide Australian tour that wrapped up last month.

Blood Year is out Friday, 2nd August. Listen to ‘Arluck’ below.
