Russian Circles is now streaming their smoldering new single "Gnosis" off their upcoming record of the same name. "'Gnosis' is a special song that has grown with us over a number of years," said the band. "The main theme of the song was reconceptualized so many times that it provided nearly endless arrangement options. It's rewarding to see such a minimal song idea evolve into one of our most dynamic and fully-realized songs to date.

"When discussing a concept for the video, we agreed we wanted cinematic footage of nature and humanity. Ultimately, we wanted the video to feel fresh and inspiring despite dealing with a dark theme. Similarly, we wanted to compel viewers to rewatch the video and get something new from each viewing. Somehow, editor Joe Kell masterfully made this all happen.”

Russian Circles will release their first new record in three years Gnosis on August 19. Gnosis was engineered and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Mutoid Man, etc.) at God City with additional tracking done at Chicago's Electrical Audio. Pre-orders are available here. In addition to the new record, Russian Circles will embark on a world tour starting this September featuring Rezn and Cult Of Luna on select dates.

"What keeps the band interesting at this point comes down to the fact that no one does instrumental post-metal quite like this."
