GEMINI SYNDROME Announce “Worldwide Initiation” Ritual And YouTube Listening Party For New Album

Gemini Syndrome will release their new studio album, 3rd Degree - The Raising, on Friday, October 15, via Century Media.

The band are giving fans the opportunity to join them this coming Thursday (October 14) on YouTube for a special “Worldwide Initiation” ritual for all of the diehard Synners, and an advance album listening party, complete with a live Q+A session with the band. The band will stream the entire album, and then take questions from fans discussing the album and the songs.

The “Worldwide Initiation” ritual, and listening party starts at 7 PM, ET, and will stream live on the band’s YouTube channel, here. (*Fans will need to be logged in to YouTube to take part in the following live Q+A session.)

“We're very excited to be back out in the road again this fall. It’s a time of transformation on our planet and our lives in preparation for the rebirth of the approaching solstice. We're grateful to share this Initiation with all you Spiritual Soldiers on the frontline helping to bring music back to this fucked up world,” says Gemini Syndrome vocalist Aaron Nordstrom.

Drummer Brian Steele Medina continues, “We love nothing more than performing and creating a sacred space for transmutation with our brothers and sisters. Now more than ever, it feels like everything is trying to pull us apart and perpetuate the illusion that we are separate. That we are not ONE. It's all bullshit. Give us your pandemics, your Pentagon UFO videos, and your barriers... It's all fucking noise, but we're louder and we will rise above it all.”

Direct support on the tour will be split between Rochester, New York’s Ovtlier, who will be on the first half of the tour (October 28 - November13), and Sacramento, California’s Oh! The Horror, who will join the run for the second half of the dates (November 14 - 27). Additional support comes from pop-punk rock powerhouse Pushing Veronica, and New Jersey hard rock wrecking machine Them Damn Kings.
