The enigmatic doom metal practitioners, Ides of Gemini, have just announced their latest bout of West Coast live ceremonies. Set to commence on July 14th, in Oakland, the journey will coil its way around 10 cities through California, Oregon, Vancouver, and Washington, coming to a close on July 24th, in Glendale. The band will be joined by blackened dream pop duo, Clay Rendering. As a precursor to the expedition, the ethereal trio will play two shows supporting Oxbow next week. Two weeks later the Ides will head to Salt Lake City for a performance at Crucialfest alongside Rosetta, Norska, Disforia, and more followed by a slot on the Demon Lung record release show in Las Vegas June 20th.

The latest round of Ides of Gemini rituals follows the band’s run supporting acclaimed indie rockers, Mountain Goats, which was cut short due to a medical injury sustained by drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson. “After the disappointment of having to drop off the Mountain Goats tour last month,” issues guitarist J. Bennett, “we’re looking forward to getting out on the road again. Unfortunately, Kelly’s injury is still healing so she won’t be able to join us for the June shows with Oxbow and Demon Lung or our appearance at Cruficalfest in Salt Lake. The good news is that our friend Sash Popovic, formerly of [singer/bassist] Sera’s [Timms] old band, Black Math Horseman, will be filling in for those. He’s a killer drummer and a great guy, so we’re very thankful that he’s agreed to help us out. If all goes according to plan, Kelly should be back in action for the July run with Clay Rendering.”
