In October of 2013, Russian Circles, comprised of bassist Brian Cook, guitarist Mike Sullivan and drummer Dave Turncrantz, released their fifth studio album titled "Memorial" on Sargent House Records. Almost immediately, the largely instrumental band embarked on a European tour that took them through the end of the year. Following the holidays, the band, split between homes in Chicago, Ill. and Brooklyn, N.Y., embarked on a U.S. tour in support of "Memorial." Photographer Sandy Carson captured the band during their Austin, Texas stop.
