“So pleased to have collaborated with these legends.. a huge influence on our music.. the moment we heard Lol’s and Pearl’s instrumentation on the song I was amazed how Curesque it sounded! You’ve got 50% of the original and classic Cure lineup right there… sounds brilliant” – Mark Gemini Thwaite

“Every Little Dream” is a song I wrote and demoed years before meeting Mark. It was one of those songs that was waiting for the right context before making its way into the world. When Mark and I started working together on the Gemini Nyte album, I sent him the demo and he loved it. Mark’s guitars and treatment certainly bring something to the party and the track has become one of our favourites, as well as treat to play live. Hopefully that comes through in the video as well, which was shot during our little European tour last year. Once again Mont Sherar did a wonderful job making us look good!” – Ashton Nyte

“”Every Little Dream” immediately stuck out to me, appealing to my indie rock sensibilities with its hint of Jesus & Mary Chain and post punk. I re-approached and recorded the guitars in a much heavier punky vibe, also adding some lead and a Steve Jones inspired solo.. and then asked the mighty Paul Ferguson of Killing Joke to add his powerhouse beats. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the new album.” – Mark Gemini Thwaite

MGT recently debuted Gemini Nyte’s first single “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.

Following the success of MGT with Ville Valo (HIM) last year on the gothic rock cover of ABBA’s classic “Knowing Me Knowing You” (over 2M views on YouTube), former Mission/Peter Murphy/Tricky guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite has teamed back up with vocalist Ashton Nyte of The Awakening to create the upcoming album ‘GEMINI NYTE’.

MGT_GEMINI_NYTE

The duo signed to legendary US gothic label Cleopatra Records, and will release the sophomore MGT album on 23 February 2018. The new album features 13 new songs written and recorded by Thwaite and Nyte, plus Paul Ferguson (KILLING JOKE) on drums and will feature 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 stomping 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. Sleeve art by renowned UK artist Paul Skellett.

Loudwire.com had the exclusive video premiere on their website on 30 November, & the single debuted at #1 in the Bandcamp Industrial & Goth charts..

MGT embody the classic Goth Rock sound on ‘All The Broken Things’…“together they’ve resurrected the classic goth rock / darkwave sound on this new track. The stylistic hallmarks are intact from the opening, jangling guitar moments to the floor-pushing, driving bass all tied together with anthemic, arena-ready drumming” LOUDWIRE.com

Mark Gemini Thwaite: ”All The Broken Things” was one of the first songs that Ashton and I wrote after our initial collaborations on ‘Volumes’, and we knew it should be the first single from the new album when we performed it live on tour this summer and saw how well it was received, .. t’s a real statement of intent and indicator of the heavier vibe of the new album.. 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.”

Ashton Nyte: “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.”

Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ashton Nyte has released 7 stylistically diverse solo albums, as well as 8 albums as gothic rock outfit The Awakening, who completed a European tour with The Mission last year.

“MGT sound amazing on “All The Broken Things”.. If you like the ’80’s gothic rock/new wave sound, you’re going to absolutely love this track!” YELLmagazine.com

MarkGT: “Jesamine is a track from my last album ‘Volumes’ which featured the marvelous Ashton Nyte on vocals, a co-written composition that is been given a fresh MGT remix & makeover and seen as a reminder and stopgap ‘release’ until our ‘Gemini Nyte’ album drops on Cleopatra records in February..  a reminder of one of the songs myself and Ashton wrote that formed a catalyst for the new album.”

‘Gemini Nyte’ by MGT – featuring 13 new songs written and recorded by Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission) and vocalist Ashton Nyte (The Awakening), plus Paul Ferguson (Killing Joke) on drums coming Feb 2018 on Cleopatra Records.  – more details soon!

MGT with Ashton Nyte (2017)

Primitive Race, the metal/industrial collective who released their debut album in 2015 featuring MarkGT, have just premiered brand new song ‘Take it All’ taken from the forthcoming album ‘Soul Pretender’ due 3rd Nov. Click below to stream:

Primitive Race - 'Take it All'

Download/stream the full album here: Physical CDBandcamp | iTunes | Amazon

Spearheaded by the core lineup of Chris Kniker with Mark Gemini Thwaite and Erie Loch, and bringing on a new complement of guest collaborators, ‘Soul Pretender’ marks a natural progression from the band’s first incarnation – a more straightforward, hard rocking effort that draws on more of an alternative rock sound. “Having MGT and Erie there to round out the group and bring their sound in was always central in my mind,” according to Kniker, with “Thwaite’s driving guitar tone to add depth and that extra level of fury to the songwriting trinity”.

Among the newcomers on Soul Pretender is former Faith No More front man Chuck Mosley, bringing what Kniker calls “this gritty yet soulful style of punk rock to the mix.” Also joining the ranks this time is Melvins drummer Dale Crover; “I love Dale’s style – the big toms and the powerful snare hits. It was perfect and it brought a whole different tone, energy, and vibe to the songs.” Unlike the debut PR album, every song on the new record features the same musicians. Joe Haze lends his mixing talents to Soul Pretender, & Maor Appelbaum returns to once again after mastering the 2015 debut; Appelbaum’s presence is a perfect fit for the album given his experience with Mosley, remastering Faith No More’s “We Care a Lot,” following his work on the band’s “Sol Invictus” and bringing that distinctive alternative rock edge to the album.

STOP PRESS: Ex Faith No More & Primitive Race frontman Chuck Mosley dead at 57

On November 9, 2017, Mosley was found dead by his partner Pip Logan on the living room floor of their Cleveland home. Drug paraphernalia was discovered at the scene, with police later confirming a drugs overdose was the cause of death. His family released a statement that read:

After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on November 9th, 2017, due to the disease of addiction. We’re sharing the manner in which he passed, in the hopes that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety. He is survived by long-term partner Pip Logan, two daughters, Erica and Sophie and his grandson Wolfgang Logan Mosley. The family will be accepting donations for funeral expenses. Details to follow when arranged.

Faith No More released the following statement:

It’s with a heavy, heavy heart we acknowledge the passing of our friend and bandmate, Chuck Mosley. He was a reckless and caterwauling force of energy who delivered with conviction and helped set us on a track of uniqueness and originality that would not have developed the way it had had he not been a part. How fortunate we are to have been able to perform with him last year in a reunion style when we re-released our very first record. His enthusiasm, his sense of humor, his style and his bravado will be missed by so many. We were a family, an odd and dysfunctional family, and we’ll be forever grateful for the time we shared with Chuck.

Faith No More Followers site also spoke to Chris Knicker and Mark Gemini Thwaite in December 2017 about the making of the new ‘Soul Pretender’ album and their thoughts on the untimely passing of Mosley  – click here for interview.
