Starting out in a musical jungle such as L.A.’s Sunset Strip can be suicide. For every band or artist, you hear about there are at least 10,000 you haven’t. Because they just weren’t good enough at something. On that rare occasion, everything comes together and the masses are all the better for it. This is one of those times.
This time around we have an in-person interview with Aaron Nordstrom, frontman, messenger for Gemini Syndrome, currently on tour with Fozzy (dates HERE) and soon to join Spoken and Deadset Society on North American “Brought to Light” Tour.
So sit back and check out what it’s like to live the dream and change the system!
About Gemini Syndrome:
Formed in 2010, the Los Angeles-based, Gemini Syndrome spent their formative days opening for bands on the Sunset Strip. As their reputation within the L.A. hard rock scene grew, so did their audience. their 2013 full-length debut Lux, which landed at #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and yielded the singles “Pleasure & Pain” and “Stardust.” The record’s release saw the Los Angeles heavy alternative band tour alongside everybody from Five Finger Death Punch to Device and perform at festivals such as Rock on the Range, Welcome to Rockville, and more. After coming off the road in late 2014, Gemini Syndrome underwent member changes, while confronting and exorcizing internal and external demons.
However, its creative core vocalist Aaron Nordstrom, drummer Brian Steele Medina, and bass player Alessandro “AP” Paveri continue to move forward after the release of their 2016 second full-length, Memento Mori; which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, and spawned the hit single “Remember We Die” – which hit #1 on SiriusXM Octane.
The band spent the majority of 2016 and 2017 on the road with bands such as In This Moment, Motionless In White, Avatar, Sevendust, Starset, and Drowning Pool.
