Following a short slumber, IDES OF GEMINI are back and ready to bring their otherworldly odes to the stage once again on a weekend run of live performances this weekend. The short trek includes an appearance at Stump Fest in Portland, Oregon and will showcase not only some brand new psalms but also an updated line up featuring drummer Scott Batiste of Saviours and bassist Adam Murray of Deth Crux alongside veteran IDES man, guitarist J. Bennett, and vocalist Sera Timms .
“These gentlemen are top-notch players and wicked handsome to boot,” issues Bennett of the new cast. “We’ll be breaking in the new lineup with a handful of West Coast shows with Saviours this month, during which we’ll be debuting some new songs.”
Additionally, the band will make an appearance at Psycho Vegas this August in Las Vegas, Nevada with more live rituals to be announced in the not so distant future. Stand by.

“A stark blend of black metal-derived guitar riffs, rigid, martial beats, and the haunting, gothic vocal harmonies… this album washes over the listener, feeling simultaneously comforting and unsettling.” – Decibel
“…the pure, sonic power of these songs… will knock you off your feet.” – Soundblab
“IDES OF GEMINI has a knack… 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… then IDES OF GEMINI is among its most evocative front-runners.” – Invisible Oranges
