Gothic rockers MGT announce new album
December 5, 2017 |
Former The Mission/Peter Murphy guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite has followed on the success of project MGT‘s collaboration with HIM frontman Ville Valo on last year’s cover of ABBA‘s Knowing Me Knowing You by teaming up with The Awakening‘s vocalist Ashton Nyte!
The duo have signed to the legendary American gothic label Cleopatra Records to release new album Gemini Nyte on February 23, 2018!
The album also features KILLING JOKE‘s Paul Ferguson on drums and appearances from Fear Factory‘s Burton C Bell and founding The Cure members Lol Tolhurst and Pearl Thompson!
Lead single All The Broken Things has been shared by the duo to celebrate the announcement! Mark says of the track;
“”All The Broken Things” was one of the first songs that Ashton and I wrote after our initial collaborations on the MGT debut album ‘Volumes’, and we knew it should be the first single from our new album when we performed it live on tour this summer and saw how well it was received, .. strident and commanding, it’s a real statement of intent and indicator of the heavier vibe of the new album.. it was also an honour to get one of our favourite drummers, Paul Ferguson of Killing Joke, to play on the songs, he totally rocks it.. any fans of our work together on the last album will love this new record.”
While Ashton adds; ““I think “All The Broken Things” is a wonderful introduction to this chapter of work, both sonically and lyrically. Mark and I started working together on the “Volumes” album and we just kept writing. We wrote and recorded most of the Gemini Nyte album within 3 or 4 months of meeting each other. I think that fluidity is reflected in this song and captured by the beautiful video Vicente Cordero has made for us.”
