These are exciting times in the Gemini Syndrome camp. The band will be playing one final tour this fall before shifting their focus to a new album. And when they do hit the stage, they'll have a familiar face to metal fans joining them. Coal Chamber's Meegs Rascon has taken over as the band's new guitarist.

Drummer Brian Medina says of Meegs, "We couldn't be more pleased to bring Meegs into the Gemini Syndrome Family. He is such a creative and innovative musician, and one of my most trusted and closest friends on this Earth. He's been here since the inception of Gemini Syndrome, and it's great to bring someone who is already family into the fold."

As for their fall touring, it starts this Friday (Sept. 15) in Las Vegas. After the first seven shows, they'll hop on a tour with Fozzy that will run from Sept. 26 to Oct. 8. And then the band will start their "Brought to Light" headlining run with support from Deadset Society and Spoken. Those dates kick off Oct. 10 in Louisville and run through Nov. 3 in San Diego.

"The Oracle has foreseen that Gemini Syndrome will be sharing the stage with fellow conspirators, Fozzy, occurring in alignment with the Autumnal Equinox," state the group. "This Fall Conversion will be the last tour of the year before we abscond to write and record our next album, closing the chapter of Memento Mori, and ushering in the third and final act of the trilogy. We look forward to sharing this sacred rite with you." Dates can be found below and it should be noted that a VIP package will include an exclusive acoustic performance from the group.

As for the band's third album, the group will hook up with producer Matt Hyde for the disc. It's expected to follow suit as the third part of a trilogy of albums that started with Lux and continued with Mememto Mori.
