RX BANDITS To Release ‘Gemini, Her Majesty’ In July, Listen To “Stargazer” Now!

RX Bandits

Orange County, CA-based metamorphic rock group RX BANDITS have announced a July 22nd release date for their seventh and much-anticipated new studio album, GEMINI, HER MAJESTY (Mash Down Babylon/INgrooves). Check out the band’s awesome new track, “Stargazer” below!

The album is available for pre-order at and on iTunes at this location – Click here!, with “Stargazer” as the instant grat track.

Produced by Jason Cupp (Maps & Atlases, Birthmark) and recorded at Prairie Sun Recording Studios in Sonoma County, CA, GEMINI, HER MAJESTY  is the follow-up to 2009’s critically acclaimed release, Mandala.

“In the past, our aim was to bridge the gap between our recorded music and our live performance,” says vocalist/guitarist Matt Embree. “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.”

Over the course of the past 19 years (yes, 2015 will be their 20-year anniversary), RX Bandits have managed to stay light years ahead of the pack by taking a genre-blurring approach to songwriting. Their adventurous style of play gives them a unique sense of flexibility, one that allows them to seamlessly fit anywhere and everywhere, from the main stage at Bonnaroo and Coachella to Bamboozle and Reading. Their songs have been featured in video games (Guitar HeroRock Band), used as the backdrop for ESPN’s X Games and continues to be religion for their legion of diehard fans around the world.

On July 11th, the band (Embree, keyboardist Steve Choi, bassist Joseph Troy and drummer Chris Tsagakis) will kick off their headlining tour of North America with a show at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg, FL. The tour, which includes co-headliner The Dear Hunter, will see RX Bandits playing a mix of new material and classic tracks.
