Post-rock greats Russian Circles have revealed some unfortunate news: they got robbed on Saturday night (10/16) at a hotel in Chowchilla, CA while on tour with System Of A Down, and had tons of gear stolen. They write, "On the night / early morning of Oct 17th Russian Circles Uhaul truck was broken into and robbed at a Holiday Inn parking lot in Chowchilla, CA which is between Fresno and Modesto. Please be on the look out and help us spread the word. Any serious information or leads please email:"
