On July 22nd, RX Bandits return with their first album in five years, Gemini, Her Majesty. The follow-up to 2009′s Mandala was produced by Jason Cupp (Maps & Atlases, The Elected) at Prairie Sun Recording Studios in Sonoma County, CA.
According to frontman Matt Embree, the LP marks a new songwriting approach for the Orange County alt rockers, who celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band next year.
"In the past, our aim was to bridge the gap between our recorded music and our live performance," Embree notes in a press release. "But this time around we really didn't ever consider that. We almost willingly ignored it. It was really nice to make a record that we didn't apply live performance constraints to. That said, now we're going to have the hefty task of figuring out how we want to arrange and play these new songs live. We love the challenge."
The creation of Gemini was possible thanks in part to a successful fundraising campaign on PledgeMusic, which pulled in a whopping 170% of the band's initial goal.
