Gemini Syndrome is an American alternative metal band formed in 2010[1] in Los Angeles. The band currently consists of vocalist Aaron Nordstrom,[2] drummer Brian Steele Medina, bassist Alessandro "(AP)" Paveri, and guitarists Miguel "Meegs" Rascon and Nicholas Paul Arnold.[3]

History[edit]

The band's debut album, Lux, was released in September 2013. Reviewers drew comparisons to bands like Mudvayne, Five Finger Death Punch, and Tool.[1] Four singles spawned from Lux: "Pleasure and Pain", "Left of Me", "Basement", and "Stardust", which peaked at number 19 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[4]

Gemini Syndrome released their sophomore album, Memento Mori, on August 16, 2016, which hit number 1 on the Heatseakers Charts.[5] Five singles spawned from Memento Mori: "Eternity",[6] "Anonymous",[7] "Alive Inside",[8] "Sorry Not Sorry",[9] and "Remember We Die", which reached number 24, and spent 20 weeks on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[10]

In a press release on September 13, 2017, the band announced that Miguel "Meegs" Rascón (formerly of Coal Chamber) joined the band,[11] replacing both Daniel Sahagún and Charles Lee Salvaggio.[12]

In August 2018, the group performed throughout the United States with American rock band Messer.[13]

On December 17, 2019, the band released a video announcing a new album and that the first single is expected to be released early in 2020.[14]

On July 23, 2021, the band announced their third album 3rd Degree – The Raising to be released on October 15, 2021. The album will feature the three previously released singles, "Die with Me", "IDK", and "Reintegration", along with a newly released single "Abandoned".[15]
