In an official statement from the band: "It is with great sadness that we will have to drop off the Mountain Goats tour. Kelly, our drummer, has suffered a herniated disc in her spine and cannot continue. The Mountain Goats and their crew have been super cool to us and we're honored to have played with them. With some rest and healing, we plan to be in top form for our Summer tour dates."

IDES OF GEMINI features Johnston-Gibson, guitarist J. Bennett, and singer/bassist Sera Timms, also of dark-psych outfit, Black Mare. The trio released their critically-hailed, Chris Rakestraw (Danzig)-produced Old World New Wave full-length last September via Neurot Recordings and will unleash a special, limited edition Cathage/Strange Fruit seven-inch via Magic Bullet Records on April 18th, 2015 in honor of Record Store Day.
