MP3: Cursive Share ‘The Sun And Moon’

Today, Cursive debuted a new single, "The Sun and Moon" from their upcoming record, I Am Gemini, via Rolling Stone. The new album will be released on February 21st through Saddle Creek. This is the band's seventh album, and will revolve around twin brothers (Cassius and Pollock) separated at birth.

Because of the record's title, the twin-brothers concept, and the inclusion of Greek gods into the albums' first single, it is easy to confuse Cursive's brothers for the Greek twin brothers, Castor and Pollux, who were transformed by Zeus into the constellation Gemini. The greek tale doesn't have the good and evil duality that Cursive have described their album consists of, but if you listen closely to "The Sun and Moon," you'll know what we're talking about. Take a listen below.

You can also catch upcoming tour dates and the album's tracklist below.


You can also get a small album preview via Spotify.
