The PRP reports Chelsea Wolfe and Russian Circles will embark on their fall 2018 tour starting September 23 in San Francisco, CA and concluding on October 9 in Tucson, AZ.
Chelsea Wolfe, born in 1983, was raised in Northern California and has released five studio albums including The Grime and the Glow (2010), Apokalypsis (2011), Pain Is Beauty (2013), Abyss (2015) and Hiss Spun (2017).
Last September, the artist spoke with ATTN: Magazine to discuss her creative process on Hiss Spun. “Last year I moved back to Northern California, not far from my hometown, so I was spending more time with family and old friends. That naturally dug up a lot of memories for me, and without really realizing it I started writing a lot of lines for this album that referred to those very personal memories, and dealt with the more daunting ones in that way as well. But I’m always emotionally tied to my songs, whether they’re about my own life or not; I give a lot of myself to each of them.”
Russian Circles formed in Chicago in 2004 and has released six studios albums including Enter (2006), Station (2008), Geneva (2009), Empros (2011), Memorial (2013) and Guidance (2016).
In 2016, the trio spoke with Culture Creature about their sound on Guidance, saying, “As far as writing, each record we try to spread out a little further stylistically. Just further spread the web each record, and go into new territory without it being weird or off-putting. Some of this record has some really gnarly moments that are really dark and dissonant. Other songs – well, even the same song – can be overtly pop-feeling.”
