At almost 14 years, Russian Circles has continued to be one of the leaders in the post-rock, alternative-metal, post-metal (or instru-metal if you’re a nerd like me) communities. Punctuated by their sometimes-terrifying crescendos, the three-piece create a magical dark metal that feels like a swirling mist that might surround a witch as she’s preparing to destroy some Eastern European town that’s scorned her. It’s altogether beautiful and spooky, and we’re more than stoked to announce that they’re headed back to San Antonio with Austin’s own Dallas Acid at Paper Tiger this Saturday. The band recently announced that they’re working on their seventh album but didn’t say whether it’d be released ahead of this tour, which includes post-doom mother of darkness Chelsea Wolfe for the first half of the tour (we’ll miss you, Chelsea, *sobs quietly*).
