RUSSIAN CIRCLES Is Plotting A New EP

"This isn't locked in stone, but hopefully that EP will come out soon."

Russian Circles released their first new album in three years Gnosis about a month ago, and that's not the only new material they've got. According to guitarist Mike Sullivan in an interview with New Noise Magazine, Russian Circles has some leftover material from the Gnosis sessions they're planning on crafting into a new EP. Sullivan points out the material was originally intended for Gnosis, and if included would've made it a "totally different record."

"It feels good to finally have it out because it was recorded so long ago. When we handed in the record, we realized—with the vinyl delays, you had to request X amount of records to be released on X date, and we requested a single LP, and when we turned in the record, we had enough material for two LPs, not even realizing that we had written that much, or that it was that much over the requirement for just a single LP.

"So we are sitting on a number of songs that were meant to be on the record. It's funny; it could be a totally different record if we were to swap out some of the songs. So there is talk of doing an additional EP tethered to—kind of a companion piece to Gnosis. But I think we'll touch up some of the songs and maybe include another one or two, and there's some other ideas.

"We don't want to make another full-on release, like, 'This is where we're going; this is the direction,' because that's not the case at all. We're just thinking about being careful of how to display the music. I think ultimately that will see the light of day hopefully in the next year or so. This isn't locked in stone, but hopefully that EP will come out soon."

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