Gemini Syndrome will return to the road in summer 2021 after a multi-year absence from touring. The band will be joined by A Killer’s Confession, Ovtlier and Pushing Veronica. Eva Under Fire also will appear at select shows.
Gemini Syndrome will be touring in support of recently released singles “Die with Me, “IDK” and “Reintegration,” and its upcoming new studio album.
“We’re very excited to get back on the road this summer with some great friends,” vocalist Aaron Nordstrom said. “After all that the world has been through, it will be nice to be part of the communion of synners once again. See you all soon!”
Drummer Brian Steele Medina said: “It’s great to get back out and visit with our brothers and sisters again. Now more than ever we could all use music and human contact to balance out the pandemic, murder hornets & Pentagon UFO videos.”
The band’s latest release is the single/video “Die with Me” via Century Media Records. Purchase or stream the track here. Full details on the new studio album will be released at a later date.
“23, Shakespeare, The divine wedding of yin and yang… ‘Die With Me’ is an invitation for the listener to come along on the journey of self-discovery with us, which ultimately leads to the death of the lower self and the resurrection of the higher self,” Nordstrom said. “Lao Tzu said, ‘The one created the two, the two created the three, and then came the 10,000 things.’ 2 and 3 respectively correspond to the male and female energies. 2 being a single line and 3 being a triangle or vessel. Therefore 23 signifies the merging of the seemingly opposite energies of male and female.”
Medina said: “In our life we have many deaths, and many reincarnations, and these experiences transform us into a more complete version of our true self… Though while we’re going through it, it’s often uncomfortable, painful, and we tend to avoid these spiritual growth spurts because we’re more comfortable sitting in our pain and shit, than walking through it. So, after we’ve walked through enough of these challenges, we might seek out that person, or tribe whose combined experience could help each other traverse that path to transmutation.
“Our video for ‘Die with Me’ is designed for the watcher to be exposed to certain signs and symbols and evoke a spiritual experience. It depicts a young initiate performing a ritual at her sacred altar. The blindfold symbolizes that her quest for truth must begin within. She contemplates time, and she laments death and learns that time is an illusion. She scribes the language of her heart as she cries out to the Universe, (Uni-Verse = The One Song.) And we’re all dead, so that’s cool too.”
“The video for ‘Die with Me’ shows a different side of death than we’ve shown before,” Nordstrom said. “Even though we’re all fatally wounded in some way, we’re still performing and extending our invitation. Maybe the girl is performing a ritual to help our souls cross the river styx? Or to keep us animated in our now, dead state.”
