IDES OF GEMINI will be touring in support of their critically championed, Chris Rakestraw (Danzig)-produced Old World New Wave full-length released in September via Neurot Recordings. Featuring nine dark, absorbing soundscrapes, the record continues to reap approval from fans and critics alike. Bearded Gentlemen Music dubs the record “…an enjoyable dream-doom filled sonic journey from start to finish,” while Noisey notes, “…there’s enough droney doom on [Old World New Wave] to make you feel like you’re stuck in David Lynch’s dreams.” Invisible Oranges boasts, “IDES OF GEMINI has a knack for atmosphere, for creating a world of sound and inviting the listener in. Their music has the feel of a classic horror film: all psychology, no fake blood or cheap startles. If there’s a goth revival afoot in metal culture — and, given last year’s releases by In Solitude, Beastmilk and others, there’s certainly an argument to be made for that — then IDES OF GEMINI is among its most evocative front-runners.” Adds Decibel, “A stark blend of black metal-derived guitar riffs, rigid, martial beats, and the haunting, gothic vocal harmonies of bassist Sera Timms and drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson, this album washes over the listener, feeling simultaneously comforting and unsettling. Better yet, there are moments that see the band exploring more hook-oriented material… which makes you wonder just how much the band’s 2013 tour with Ghost B.C. had an effect on them.”

IDES OF GEMINI features guitarist J. Bennett, drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson and the evocative vocal prowess of singer/bassist Sera Timms, also of West Coast dark-psych conjurors Black Mare.

Old World New Wave is out NOW on CD and digitally via Neurot Recordings and on vinyl via SIGE Records. For CD orders, point your browser HERE and for T-shirt bundles, point your browser to THIS LOCATION.
