Russian Circles announce world tour, proving that circles are the best shape of all time

When I was a child, my favorite shape was, no contest, the circle. But nowadays, my favorite shape? Still the circle. Just can’t be beat. Squares, rectangles, octagons, triangles, don’t need ‘em. All I need is my man, the circle. Rhombus? Get out of here with your rhombus. The beautiful thing about the circle (and, I suppose, all other shapes, too) is that it is the same in every country. Go to China, circle’s the same. Go to Egypt, circle’s the same. Go to France, circle’s the same. Stay in America, circle’s the same, that doesn’t even need saying. Go to Russia, hell yeah, circle’s the same. Hey, speaking of Russia, that reminds me to segue into the fact that there’s a band in this world called Russian Circles. How about that.

Not only is there a band named Russian Circles, particularly a Chicago-based instrumental metal band who recently put out their fourth album Empros on Sargent House, but they are also going on tour. Where are they going on tour? Everywhere! Well, except for the places they’re not going. So they’re not going everywhere. Let’s try this again. Where are they going on tour? A lot of places! Canada! America! New Zealand! Australia! By the end of the tour, they will have… circled the globe. I am returning to this circle theme.
