With the tact of a sledgehammer through a pane of glass, Jet Force Gemini is out to prove that rock music is not dead in Portland, OR.

With their first full length album in the works, Jet Force Gemini continues to thrash through the Northwest music scene. Their unapologetic, dangerous style of music and their dynamic live shows bring an entertaining mix of classic rock n roll love with modern rock melodies.

Biography

With their debut album Pistola Melodica due to release in the Summer of 2014, Jet Force Gemini is preparing for an all out assault on todays modern rock scene. The band pulls no punches with what promoter Leslie J Bialik calls a perfect blend of straight-ahead raucous rock style, with very timely and relevant lyrics.    


Fronted by guitarist/vocalist Michael Christopher, Jet Force Gemini blends a tight vocal cadence that dances along with drummer Paul Richeys driving and expressive beats. The melodies themselves are saturated with harmonic balance between Michael and lead guitarist Roman Bilko. The detail is intricate and deeply layered, often down to the syllable.


    Romans memorable leads range between classic punk anthems and modern southern rock phrasing to blistering fast classic rock solos and hauntingly romantic ballads.  Bassist Tim Riva bridges it all together with tight bass lines; blending scale with subtlety.  They are playing in the same playground as Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance, writes The Musical Junkie. 


    The extent of the bands range can be heard between the groups singles. New Disco Era is pop punk to the core. A strong showing of vocal harmonies, pop hooks, and throwback leads with a touch of dark humor. Venom plays on the modern rock foundation. An antihero love song  that highlights the instrumental and vocal cadence the ties the entire band together. Catalyst is the fight track. It hits hard and fast, with a chorus that combines multi-layered harmonies and rapid fire double bass.


    It is with this unapologetic style that Jet Force Gemini  make themselves known.  Not relying on hyperbole or clichs to define themselves; JFG uses a combination of high energy live performances, anthem-like choruses, and a series of original viral video content to stand apart from the atypical alternative rock genre. Simply put; it is animated, explosive, entertainment.

Lyrics

Catalyst

Written By: Michael Christopher

Call it what you will
But you know they’ve crossed the line.
Call the coroner
There’s been a homicide
From the left
It pulled through the right
Shot him straight between the eyes

Call it a catalyst
There will be no compromise
Yeah, we’ve been mislead
But that is where it dies
We will defy
Witness this uprise
Now Kill it quick before they realize

We’re not going back
Not going back
To what you have created
We’ve waited far to long to see the end

Rise.
Weaponize.
Every line
Will be used to sever our ties
To their crimes
Won't define
Any of us anymore

Call it what you will
But this corruption, you cant hide.
Those who are blind will open up their eyes
To your lies
Go build your alibis
And we’ll tear it down every time

Murder by death
Make a killing every time
Does that make it right?
Does silence satisfy?
Or does it eat at you inside?

We are taking backing,
we’re taking back
what they have created
We’ve waited far to long to see the end

Rise.
Weaponize.
Every line
Will be used to sever our ties
To their crimes
Won't define
Any of us anymore

Manipulate.
My words with hate.
You don’t know what I know and that’s just what it takes
Well I know what I am
And I know you’re a fake
All those lies you create
We’ll throw back in your fucking face

Rise.
Weaponize.
Every line
Will be used to sever our ties
To their crimes
Won't define
Any of us anymore

Gun Stars

Written By: Michael Christopher

Kiss, Bang, goes my revolverStraight into your face
Boom! Boom! I got a bullet
And it is coming your way

This is violence- this is license
This is the American way

We’re all soldiers, baby
La Cosa Nostra Cowboys
At war on this dance floor
Underneath the party lights

This is shameless. this makes no sense
It‘s contagious. I cant fake this-
It’s a virus. it’s a cancer-
This is our music today

Sell it out
Sell it now
Take the words that they want and scream it loud
Sell it out
Sell it now
Take the words that they want and scream it loud

We’re dropping tracks like mortar
We’ll pummel you with our sound
Whether you like it or not
We’ll always be around
This is mainstream. Its marketing. Go ahead and overplay me.

Sell it out
Sell it now
Take the words that they want and scream it loud
Sell it out
Sell it now
Take the words that they want and scream it loud
Oh no.

We’re riding in on a tank
You take that shit to the bank
We’re going boneless baby!
Get auto tuned for me

I don’t know what I’m doing but I know what I’ve seen before
Isn’t that all it takes to get my name up on the boards?

Sorry Jim and sorry Johnny
I didn’t have the talent it takes

Sell it out
Sell it now
Take the words that they want and scream it loud
Sell it out
Sell it now
Take the words that they want and scream it loud

We are Gun Stars
We are Gun Stars
Now take that radio bullet and put it straight through your head

What It Means

Written By: Michael Christopher

Look to the skyAnd you will be satisfied
With the passing of our time
It’s all a lie.
We want one line.
So try to deny and never question why

so give me the perfect scene
Go ahead and lie to me
Cause this chapter is the worst we’ve ever seen.
Can you show me what it means
Tell me everything I need
Seems to me that this life is getting harder every year.

Look to those words you have used before to justify.
In these moments do you really
Think that you are alive?

so give me the perfect scene
Go ahead and lie to me
Cause this chapter is the worst we’ve ever seen.
Can you show me what it means
Tell me everything I need
Seems to me that this life is getting harder every year.

With everything we’ve seen. What could it mean? Is there no hope.

so give me the perfect scene
Go ahead and lie to me
Cause this chapter is the worst we’ve ever seen

We never meant for it to mean more
Forget it. Forget it. Forget it.

Underneath The Waves

Written By: Michael Christopher

What are we made from, is there moreTo us than our bodies?
Is this the best we can do
Oh tell me this is not true
Its all so damn cyclical.
we’re only wasting our time
So open up your heart, close your eyes,
and take a dive

How can you know unless you try?
Let all your words light up the sky

And don’t let it bring you down
Know you are not alone
This place can be your home
This is where you need to be
Standing right here next to me
Now can you hear the sound?
It’s underneath the ground
Like a siren screaming out
Come rescue me

There is lie we tell ourselves
in hopes that we can justify
We don’t have to live like this-
We are not meant for it
You know despite what they say.
There is always another way
Its buried underneath
the lines that we are fed

How can you know unless you try?
Let all your words light up the sky

And don’t let it bring you down
Know you are not alone
This place can be your home
This is where you need to be
Standing right here next to me
Now can you hear the sound?
It’s underneath the ground
Like a siren screaming out
Come rescue me

And know that we are not alone.

Come rescue me
Come rescue me and take me home
This is where I need to be.

Sweetest Poison

Written By: Michael Christopher

Shake, shake me awake
You got that look across your face
The whiskey on your breath
Still lingers in the air.
You whisper in my ear. Come with me if you dare
Sweetheart. You know id go anywhere.
You go. Well I swear. You’ll ruin me one day.

You know I cant quit this
I’ve got an addiction to your sweetest poison
Well I can not go on
I’m a victim to your dirty art of seduction.

Another night spent in jail.
Blacked out and bloody from the bar fight
That you started, honey.
We can’t go on if we’re not going hard.
Its self destructive and its oh so shallow

But I love it. Even if it ruins me one day.

You know I cant quit this
I’ve got an addiction to your sweetest poison
Well I can not go on
I’m a victim to your dirty art of seduction.

You know I cant quit this
I’ve got an addiction to your sweetest poison

I know I cant give in you might as well be breathing fire
You’re the devil’s little daughter.
Well I can not go on
I’m a victim to your dirty art of seduction.

New Disco Era

Written By: Michael Christopher

What I gotta say doesn’t matter anymore
Its not the meaning that you have been after.
Is there some hook that youre looking for?
Im always here when you’re asking for more.

What I gotta say doesn’t matter anyway.
Can’t you see we’re doing our best to stay
Relevant in all of this, it’s pathetic.
What can I say?

Oh, no here we go
Oh, no here we go
Call me out. Call me a cynic.
I know you will hate me for this.

What I gotta say doesn’t matter anymore
When we look back we will be glad that it’s over.
I won’t admit that I was part of it.
I’ll lie through my teeth and say I had conviction.

To hold fast to what I believed in.
No, I never changed my reason.
I could be a good role model.
Let me be a good role model.

Oh, no here we go
Oh, no here we go
Call me out. Call me a cynic.
I know you will hate me for this.

Oh, no here we go
Oh, no here we go
Go on say what you want to say
I knew this would come my way.

Oh, no here we go
Oh, no here we go
Call me out. Call me a cynic.
I know you will hate.

Cause it’s life. It is love.
It is home. It is happiness, you know?
At least that’s what I’m told.
At least that’s what I’m told.

Cause it’s life. It is love.
It is home. It is happiness, you know?
At least that’s what I’m told.
At least that’s what I’m told.
