Been waiting for this one to drop for quite a while. If you have yet to hear of Gemini Syndrome – the time has come to correct that issue in your life. I was a huge fan of the band’s last album, Memento Mori, which dropped back in 2016 and made quite a bit of noise on the metal scene.
Having spent a lot of time on their upcoming, to this point untitled, third album we’ve gotten precious few teases of what might be in store but below you can find the video debut for IDK – and personally, I think it rocks.
The press release contains all the info you need – have a read:
“LA alternative metal band Gemini Syndrome have just released their new track and music video for “IDK” today via Another Century. “IDK plays with the double entendre, ‘I decay’ and ‘IDK’ (I don’t know) to illustrate the Voltaire quote, ‘The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing,'” states Gemini Syndrome vocalist Aaron Nordstrom about the newest release.
Gemini Syndrome drummer Brian Steele Medina adds, “IDK opens the door to the idea that we have to be willing to discard our old ideas and identity to give space for new ideas to grow and allow a more evolved identity to flourish. The last thing we want to do is to get stuck in old patterns of thought and behavior. This is an essential principal as we progress through the various degrees of the initiatory traditions.” GEMINI SYNDROME spent the better part of 2018-2019 writing the final installment of their long planned three album trilogy. They retreated to drummer Brian Steele Medina’s Las Vegas home studio, where they meticulously crafted song after song, relentlessly reworking and rearranging the musical arrangements until they were fully satisfied. After an exhaustive writing process, GEMINI SYNDROME relocated to Good Sounds Studio in Tempe AZ, where producer Matt Good would help realize the collection of songs. Medina recalls, “We absolutely loved working with Matt and he completely understood where we wanted to take this album creatively and what it was going to take to bring the third chapter of this trilogy to light. Our actual collective blood, sweat and tears went into its creation.” “IDK” follows the release of “Reintegration” and is the band’s first new music since the release of their sophomore album Memento Mori (2016), which hit #1 on Billboard Heatseakers Chart and spawned five singles: “Eternity“, “Anonymous“, “AliveInside“, “SorryNotSorry“, and “Remember We Die“. Stay tuned for more details about the band’s forthcoming third album by following the band on socials. Gemini Syndrome is Aaron Nordstrom (vocals, keyboards), Brian Steele Medina (drums, programming), Alessandro “AP” Paveri (bass), Meegs Rascon (guitar), and Nicholas Paul Arnold (touring guitar).
