Even the haziest of musical entities undergo some process of regeneration between records. IDES OF GEMINI are no different, but their journey from their 2012 debut, Constantinople, and its formidable follow-up Old World New Wave-both released via post-metal mavens NEUROSIS' Neurot Recordings-to brand new studio album Women, the band's first for Rise Above Records, has been a turbulent and challenging one. Original drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson incurred a career-threatening injury while on tour in the US in 2015, causing guitarist J. Bennett and vocalist (and then-bassist) Sera Timms to reassess their next move. After enlisting Scott Batiste of SAVIOURS as a stand-in drummer for a short West Coast tour, a new alliance was formed and Scott soon became a permanent member. The band then expanded to a quartet for the first time, as Sera relinquished her bass-playing duties to newcomer Adam Murray.

Women is set for release April 28th via Rise Above Records. The new album is both a dramatic leap forward for these idiosyncratic spirit guides and their most direct and impactful collection of songs to date.

Today the first new song from the album "The Rose" has been and you can listen to the song below.

Vocalist Sera Timms on "The Rose":

"J gave me the title to this song and I originally thought it would be inspired by an alchemical painting of the same name by Jay DeFeo. However, when the music came together it was very clear that it needed something more weighty and earthbound so I started researching The War Of The Roses. This led me to a historical story within that canon about two princes who were locked inside the London Tower during a power dispute over the throne and ended up disappearing. I related very much to this story being a sort of "monarch" in a band who has lost beautiful collaborators who were like musical princes, due to abuse of my own power. In essence the song is about the realization that to be a rose, a regal flower, one must embrace only the temporal possession of the moment and hold to nothing more."

Produced by the inimitable Sanford Parker, Women also features guest appearances from Tara Connelly of CLAY RENDERING (on "Queen Of New Orleans") and bewitching singer-songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle (on "She Has A Secret"). As ever, IDES OF GEMINI's new songs uniformly fizz and crackle with a storyteller's verve, as Timms' emotionally devastating delivery and Bennett's scabrous riffs paint vivid images of womanhood's multifarious routes to the gates of Hell and beyond. As a result, the new album's title was a no-brainer.

Determined to make up for the time lost during recent upheavals, IDES OF GEMINI hope to use Women as a springboard to re-launch their assault on the consciousness of the world's outcasts and eccentrics. Revitalized and armed with their finest album to date, these inveterate square pegs may yet prove to be unstoppable.
