Gemini Syndrome
Gemini Syndrome is a collective of 5 musicians with one common focus: music. Originating from Los Angeles, CA in early 2010, the band has been converting listeners with their strong stage performances and cohesive content, filling a gap that has been lacking in contemporary, mainstream music.

Comprised of vocalist Aaron Nordstrom (former guitarist for OTEP), guitarists Rich Juzwick and Mike Salerno, bassist Alessandro Paveri, and drummer Brian Steele Medina (former TOIZ w/ Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch) the group has made a strong foothold on the local LA hard rock scene and has begun to make advances into the rest of the nation.

First opening shows on the legendary Sunset Strip with such known acts as Nonpoint, Murderdolls, and The Dreaming, Gemini Syndrome has been packing shows at the renowned Roxy Theater, blazing a path for other local talents. Building from the momentum of these local successes, Gemini Syndrome has continued converting new fans through regional shows and multiple national tours, including a coveted spot on Wayne Static’s Pighammer tour in Fall 2011. This natural progression of organically grown attention has enabled the band to consistently move forward and gain strong recognition.

Gemini Syndrome independently released their debut EP, «I», in late January, 2011. Produced by Mikey Doling (Snot, Soulfly, Channel Zero) this EP was the catalyst that led to their signing with Warner Bros. Records in late August 2011. Be on the lookout for Gemini Syndrome’s debut full length album in Spring 2012.

It's not often a platinum selling band with a #1 song in the US announces they're going on hiatus, but that was the case when My Darkest Days singer Matt Walst was given the opportunity to front Canadian hard rock legends, Three Days Grace.

"Deadset Society (originally named Never Say Die) started in the front passenger seat of the My Darkest Days BandWagon... we had a relentless tour schedule," says Reid Henry (Lead Vocals/Guitar). "During overnight drives I'd squeeze through a small window to the front of the bus and stay up writing, singing, and occasionally wedging my laptop on the dashboard to record."

Over the next year, what eventually became Deadset Society remained a studio project of Reid and My Darkest Days bandmate, Brendan McMillan (Bass).

In early 2016, Reid's demos caught the interest of Producer/Engineer (Evans Blue, Parabelle, Scarlet White) and drummer (Age Of Days), Mike Langford. The band began recording an EP that grew into an album. With the addition of Mike's long time tourmate, Dane Hartsell (guitar/vocals), what started as a dream for Reid, Deadset Society has quickly become a reality.

With their debut album [Destroy + Rebuild] released early 2017 (as Never Say Die), their single ‘Like A Nightmare’ peaking at #3 on SiriusXM Octane’s Big ‘Uns Countdown, closing in on 1,000,000 streams on Spotify, and approaching 100 shows since hitting the road January 2017, it's apparent Deadset Society has positioned themselves to continue where My Darkest Days left off.
