IDES OF GEMINI: Cryptic “Seer Of Circassia” Video Now Playing At Noisey; Old World New Wave Out Now Via Neurot Recordings

Old World New Wave is the latest long player from West Coast shadowy sound conjurors, IDES OF GEMINI. Released in September via Neurot Recordings, the follow-up to the band’s critically-laudedConstantinople debut was recorded at Valley Recording in Burbank, California, engineered and mixed by Chris Rakestraw (Danzig), mastered by Grammy award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer) and offers up nine tracks of dark, mesmerizing soundscrapes.

In celebration of its release, today Vice’s music gateway, Noisey,  reveals the occult conjurings of their erotic Daciana Birladeanu-directed “Seer Of Circassia” video. Elaborates singer/bassist Sera Timms, “The concept of the album traces the symbolic-psychological breakdown of a character over ten days [‘Seer Of Circassia’ takes place on day four]. We're working within the structures of psycho-spiritual alchemical transformation, utilizing Carl Jung's school of analytical psychology. Essentially we have a story of the psychological conflict of opposing forces -- yin-yang, male/female/dark light, etc. -- each driven by desire. The masculine archetype in this story desires control and structure, while the feminine archetype desires recognition and equality as it has been repressed in the ‘Old World.’ Our protagonist is the Emperor, based creatively on the last Emperor of Constantinople, who represents the ego, masculine, solar consciousness along with control, structure, domination, force and power.


View the gorgeously shot “Seer Of Circassia” video along with an
in-depth interview with guitarist J. Bennett at THIS LOCATION.

IDES OF GEMINI is Timms, also of West Coast dark-psych conjurors Black Mare, alongside guitarist Jason Bennett and drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson. The band will bring their sonic séance to the stage next month playing Intronaut’s tenth anniversary show with additional IDES ceremonies to be announced in the coming weeks.

“[IDES OF GEMINI are] about to put out a new album called Old World New Wave and there’s enough droney doom on it to make you feel like you’re stuck in David Lynch’s dreams.” – Noisey

“..an enjoyable dream-doom filled sonic journey from start to finish.” – Bearded Gentlemen Music

“IDES OF GEMINI has a knack for atmosphere, 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 -- and, given last year’s releases by In Solitude, Beastmilk and others, there’s certainly an argument to be made for that -- then IDES OF GEMINI is among its most evocative front-runners.” – Invisible Oranges

NEUROSIS Announces Trio Of Year-End California Performances

NEUROSIS has just confirmed three more shows for 2014, set to take place during the final days of the year in California. While the members of NEUROSIS currently reside in numerous areas of the country, the Bay Area will forever remain the land of the band's origin, and to commemorate one of their most active years performing abroad in their nearly three decades in existence, they'll unite for a trio of concerts including two shows back where it all began.

                                                                                                                                        Photo credit: Tim Bugbee
The first of the year-end live run will see NEUROSIS playing at The Observatory in Orange County's Santa Ana on Monday, December 29th. The next two evenings — Tuesday, December 30th and Wednesday the 31st —  will see the band back in their native Bay Area lands, with two consecutive shows at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. Supporting NEUROSIS on all three of these headlining shows will be an incredibly diverse and destructive lineup, including Portland's morose d-beat hardcore icons, Tragedy, San Diego-based industrial drone man/machine act, Author & Punisher, and San Francisco's sludge/noise rock outfit, Kowloon Walled City.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE released their Last City Zero debut full-length via Neurot Recordings last year.Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero is the audio end product of government conspiracies, societal ruin and psychological decay. Traveling far beyond the traditional confines of any one specific genre, Last City Zero is at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying and continues to raise the brows of exploratory fans and critics globally. Said About.com, “On Last City Zero, CORRECTIONS HOUSE survey the world with a bleak outlook, as much with scorn as sadness. The industrial/mechanical side feels indicative of how the soul is being ripped from the chest of society, whereas the cleaner side represents the need to hold on to our own individuality. The angry screams voice the fight to maintain what is ours and to retake what has been taken, and the spoken voices of reason and honesty instill reflectiveness and a lack of ignorance…,” Exclaim gushed, “Last City Zero is brooding, raw and corrosive, as well as breathtakingly beautiful,” while Crave agreed, “CORRECTIONS HOUSE have created something wholly original, incredibly touching, and most likely alienating. Bravo gentlemen, bravo.” Added Metal Hammer, “Whether it’s Mike IX Williams’ grim spoken word poetry or Scott’s coarse, monotone groan overlaying the clangorous soundscapes, it’s the utter bleakness that binds.”


CORRECTIONS HOUSE recently put the finishing touches on their forthcoming new full-length, set for release sometime in 2015. In the meantime, check out a live version of (half of) CORRECTIONS HOUSE’s cover of Neil Young’s “Cortez The Killer” from Roadburn at THIS LOCATION:
