IDES OF GEMINI will be touring in support of their transcendental doom masterwork, Constantinople, released via Neurot Recordings last Spring.

“Ides Of Gemini exists in a spiritually distinct realm from everyone, ever. There’s plenty here to immerse oneself in.” – ROCK A ROLLA

“There is a metallic-filtered kinship here to Cocteau Twins and Mazzy Star: this is gorgeous stuff, full of promise, and heading toward true greatness.” – TERRORIZER

“It’s easy to see Constantinople as a cathartic exorcism of demons. This also means that it’s an incredibly cohesive album that is best enjoyed as a whole, the songs best understood in context of the ones that came before. This is an impressionistic interpretation of doom.” – THE SLEEPING SHAMAN
