Russian Circles managed to keep quiet for twenty-eight days in 2018 before announcing that King Woman will join them in March and April for a North American tour. Over three weeks the bands will be playing shows all over Canada and the United States, starting in Omaha, Nebraska, and capping off in Chicago, Illinois.
Russian Circles’ new tour will be a quick turnaround from its lengthy world tour with Mastodon and Eagles of Death Metal, but they are ready. The Chicago group has been together for over a decade and have produced copious instrumental and rock n’ roll music. Their sound runs the gamut from pink butterfly beauty to sticky grunge, and they continue to innovate on a daily basis. Russian Circles will not settle for tradition or anything less than cutting edge.
Kristina Esfandiari founded King Woman in 2009. Serving as the group’s vocalist, Esfandiari and the Bay Area group moulded a sound unique to themselves. One corner of a King Woman album could be shoegaze and another would contain sad and heavy metal. They debuted in 2017 with Created In The Image Of Suffering, which earned them widespread acclaim. The truthful an deep lyrics reveal how much of King Woman’s members’ own personal suffering is contained in their work.
The two groups are a scientific match in chemistry and will give great performances. Tour dates below.
