IDES OF GEMINI Announce Summer Tour With CLAY RENDERING

After their tour with The Mountain Goats was cut short due to an injury sustained by drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson, Ides of Gemini have announced that they will return to the road again to further support their 2014 release, Old World New Wave. Early next month, the band will play a set of shows alongside experimental kings Oxbow, Crucialfest in Salt Lake City and the Demon Lung record release show in Las Vegas. Ex-Black Math Horseman drummer Sash Popovic will be filling in for Johnston-Gibson for the show dates. Then starting July 14, the band will be joined by Clay Rendering for a new handful of shows.  Guitarist J. Bennett issued the following statement:

“After the disappointment of having to drop off the Mountain Goats tour last month, 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.”
