This interview series started as something small I thought I could get advice from a few guitarists on how to play guitar. I did not think I’d be getting actual advice on how to better my tone from one of my all-time favorite guitarists Mike Sullivan of Russian Circles. He taught me how to better set up my stereo rig and to utilize my tremolo pedal as more of a boost. He warned me I’d lose a weekend just playing guitar. Well, I lost a few weekends, hence this interview is a little late.
Chicago instrumental post-rock trio Russian Circles are an incredibly loud band. When guitarist Mike Sullivan, drummer Dave Turncrantz, and bassist Brian Cook get together, the decibels are raised to massive levels, the syncopation is tight like a double knot, and the senses are surely going to feel something.
We are delighted to share that 4 sets from our artists have been announced in the first round to play @roadburnfest 2023. Deafheaven will play 2 full album sets to celebrate the 10 Year anniversary of ’Sunbather’ and their latest release ‘Infinite Granite’. Brutus will present their new album ‘Unison Life’ and David Eugene Edwards will perform an acoustic/ solo set with songs picked from his catalogue including 16 Horsepower through Wovenhand. It is shaping up to be another great Roadburn, see you all in Tilburg.
Tickets for Roadburn will go on sale on Tuesday, 15 November. For all info Roadburn.com
"Imagine a life lived in perfect harmony. There are no conflicts, only peace, and everything is in balance. Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? Utopian, even. This is what Brutus call ‘unison life’, and it is the concept their third album of the same name revolves around."
