IDES guitarist J Bennett adds: "We're dying to hit the studio to record with our new lineup. This will absolutely be our best album by leaps and bounds - it's got some of the heaviest tunes we've ever written, some of the least-heavy tunes we've ever written, and definitely some of the catchiest tunes we've ever written. There might even be a theme that links the songs together, but we'll fill you in on all that later. Til then, stay tuned..."

The band will commence recording their third full-length album in LA with Sanford Parker and is scheduled for a Spring 2017 release. IDES OF GEMINI are also set to appear Psycho Vegas this weekend. In summary, Bennett concludes: ""We couldn't be more thrilled to join Rise Above and their absolutely top-notch stable of artists. Lee obviously has impeccable taste, and our signing proves it!"
