Russian Circles debut first music video ever
The video is for "Gnosis" off their upcoming record titled the same
Russian Circles have been a band for almost two decades and they are finally releasing their very first music video. The video 8-plus minute-long video is for the title track on the band's upcoming album, Gnosis, which is due out on August 19th and was mixed and engineered by Kurt Ballou at his God City studio.
The band had the following to say about the track:
'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.
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, you can catch Russian Circles on tour starting in September and you can preorder Gnosis here.
