"I hope that most people who listen to Russian Circles listen to entire albums. And I think if you listen to "Memorial" in its entirety, it is a completely logical step in the evolution of the band. I think it's the same story in the live setting. We strive to make our live shows one long seamless composition, and I think that audiences that hear the new material in that context will see it as a natural progression of our sound," says bassist Brian Cook.
