MGT features Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission, Peter Murphy) and Ashton Nyte (The Awakening) and they'll be releasing a new album, Gemini Nyte, on February 23rd via Cleopatra Records.
Following on from the success of the collaboration with Ville Valo (HIM) last year on the MGT cover of ABBA’s classic “Knowing Me Knowing You” (over 2M views on youtube / 300K plays on Spotify), former The Mission/Peter Murphy guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite has teamed up with vocalist Ashton Nyte of The Awakening to create the upcoming album Gemini Nyte.
The duo have signed to legendary US gothic label Cleopatra Records, and will release the sophomore MGT album on February 23, 2018. The new album Gemini Nyte features 13 new songs written and recorded by Thwaite and Nyte, plus Paul Ferguson (KILLING JOKE) on drums and guest appearances by Burton C Bell (FEAR FACTORY) and Lol Tolhurst & Pearl Thompson - founding members of THE CURE who appeared on the band’s early, classic releases.
The first single from the new album is “All The Broken Things,” a strident goth rocker with a new video featuring Nyte, Thwaite, Paul Ferguson and ex-The Mission bassist Richard Vernon. Mixed by legendary producer John Fryer (NINE INCH NAILS, HIM, THIS MORTAL COIL) and directed by Vicente Cordero who recently directed videos for QUEENSRŸCHE, 3TEETH and JYRKI 69.
