Gemini Syndrome will release a new album called 3rd Degree -- The Raising on October 15.

In a statement, vocalist Aaron Nordstrom describes the upcoming record as being about "death and rebirth."

Gemini Syndrome has already released three songs from 3rd Degree, including the current single "Die with Me." A fourth cut, titled "Abandoned," is out today via digital outlets.

3rd Degree is the follow-up to 2016's Memento Mori, which spawned the single "Remember We Die."

Here's the 3rd Degree -- The Raising track list:

"Reintegration"
"IDK"
"Die With Me"
"Baptized in Fire"
"Children of the Sun"
"Abandoned"
"Broken Reflection"
"Sum Quod Eris"
"Best of Me"

The Black Keys soundtrack video announcing Cleveland baseball team's new name

The Black Keys are helping announce the new name of Cleveland's baseball team.

In a video posted Friday morning, the MLB franchise revealed it will officially be known as the Cleveland Guardians going forward. The change comes after its previous name, logo and mascot had long been criticized as offensive to the Native American community.

The video, which is narrated by lifelong Cleveland fan Tom Hanks, features music from fellow diehards The Black Keys, who originally formed in nearby Akron, Ohio.

"Together we stand with all who understand what it means to be born and built from the Land," Hanks says, as the Keys' El Camino track "Little Black Submarines" plays in the background. "Because this is the city we love, and the game we believe in. And together, we are all Cleveland Guardians."

Back in 2016, drummer Patrick Carney threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Cleveland game.

It's just one of those years: HBO's 'Woodstock 99' doc holds a "mirror" to America in 1999

Courtesy of HBO

What do you get when you combine a former military base, shoddy facilities, a bloated music industry, a clash of generations, unbearable heat and $4 water bottles, all set to the angry, nihilistic music that only the late '90s could provide? Perhaps the most infamous music festival of the last 25 years.

Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage, which premieres today on HBO, tells the story of the ill-fated event, which ended in chaos and riots amid three days of boiling temperatures and overflowing toilets, as well as death and sexual assault.

In addition to exploring how it all went wrong, director Garret Price tells ABC Audio he wanted to use Woodstock '99 as a "mirror" to the cultural and sociopolitical issues of America in 1999.

The doc mentions everything from the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal to the rise of Napster and the Columbine shooting, and examines how the older generation that experienced the original 1969 Woodstock tried to push its values on the younger '99 audience.

"If I could find a way to mix all these together and show that Woodstock '99 was this big mixing bowl of the things that were going on culturally, with some poor planning, and people falling victim to the mythology of the original Woodstock, it creates this thing that devolves over three days," Price explains.

All of this, of course, was soundtracked by the biggest rock bands at the time, including Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kid Rock. Each musical moment in the film, Price shares, was "methodically chosen."

"There's subtext...I wanted to use in the lyrics of these songs, and really allow me...to step back and look at these bigger picture ideas," Price says.

The updated recording features guest vocals from Meg Myers. You can download it now via digital outlets.

"When we released the acoustic version of 'Nowhere Generation,' we found that it really connected with a lot of people," says frontman Tim McIlrath. "We heard from a lot of unique and beautiful voices, and we knew that we needed to add another beautiful, unique voice to this song. Meg was the perfect choice and we are thrilled with how it all turned out."

"When Rise Against asked me to sing on 'Nowhere Generation,' I felt an instant connection to the song," Myers adds. "There is a power and a purity about this song that is so healing and unifying."

The original "Nowhere Generation" currently sits in the top 10 on both Billboard's Mainstream Rock and Alternative Airplay charts.

Nowhere Generation the album was released in June. Rise Against will launch a tour in support of the record July 27 in Cleveland.

Myers released a pair of EPs, Thank You 4 Taking Me 2 the Disco and I'd Like 2 Go Home Now, last November. The former includes her single "The Underground."
