South welsh metal quartet – Truth – is back with the band’s first single since 2015 and a long-anticipated debut video for “Gemini”. After 2 years developing its sound and building a strong foundation upon the debut single “Given Eyes”, the post-hardcore/metalcore formation is set to stampede its way through the scene with thunderous riffs and the intense drive to be something unique. According to Truth, the members of the group threw themselves out of their comfort zone to create something new, as they believe that “Gemini” is just the first stepping stone on their way to revitalising the alternative music scene.
In a collective statement, the band provides further information about the track: “This song is about one person living two very different lifestyles. The life his loved ones think he leads and the life he actually leads. “Gemini” was the first song we began to write for our new record and was the first step in the direction we wanted our new sound to follow. “Gemini” is a very honest composition and has a dark undertone. Though it has been proved challenging to write and record, we knew that we had to keep pushing through, because we knew we had something unique, especially compared to the other songs we have written in the past. It was a risk and definitely put us out of our comfort zone, because it has a lot of different elements that we weren’t used to, both musically and lyrically. We were so used to writing the same thing over and over again, just to please people who like this genre of music, but with “Gemini” we believe that we made something that we would want to listen to ourselves. We think that this type of music gets a bad reputation these days with plenty of bands sounding the same and essentially playing the same songs just with different titles and being too scared to step outside of the box. We believe “Gemini” is a step closer to revitalising this music scene.”
