Russian Circles Make Their Music Video Debut With “Gnosis,” New


Looking for an atmospheric, yet heavy track to get you through the mid-week doldrums? Then look no further than the Chicago-based proggy post-rock trio Russian Circles and the newly released music video for “Gnosis,” the title track from their latest offering that’s set to release on August 19.

Touted as the album’s “centerpiece” track, “Gnosis” is the kind of listen that builds from a droning, almost ethereal whisper until it becomes a crashing deluge of chugging riffs and pounding rhythm. Russian Circles says “Gnosis” carries significant importance to them as a composition.

“Gnosis is a special song that has grown with us over a number of years. 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.”

Directed by Joe Kell, the band’s music video debut below swells along with the music to deliver imagery that seems to match the music’s building tension. The band said they wanted their first video to give people something to ponder.

“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.”

In addition to their upcoming release, Russian Circles will be hitting the road nearly a year after they were robbed while out on tour. Regardless of that terrible situation, they will be going on a 26-date stretch across the U.S. and Canada starting this September before embarking on 14-date trek across Europe next March.

Russian Circles’ album Gnosis will release on Friday, August 19 and is available for preorder via Sargent House.
