MGT pays tribute to fallen hero Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots with an emotionally raw cover of STP No.4 classic deep-cut “Atlanta,” found on the new MGT album ‘Gemini Nyte’. The band has partnered with NewNoiseMagazine.com to premiere a video for the touching homage:

NewNoiseMagazine.com MGT Atlanta Premiere

http://newnoisemagazine.com/video-premiere-mgt-atlanta-stone-temple-pilots-cover/

“As an avid fan of Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots I was deeply moved by his passing. Mark and I were busy recording the Gemini Nyte album at the time and I reached out to him to record some acoustic guitars for “Atlanta”, as I was toying with releasing a stripped version of the song as an Ashton Nyte solo single / tribute at the time. Mark kindly obliged and then kept adding bits and pieces to the musical arrangement and it organically evolved into a “Gemini Nyte” track. Once I had laid down the vocals I knew it had to be our album closer. It is not necessarily the best known STP track but has been my favourite song of Scott’s since the moment I first heard it. We shot a very impromptu video of Mark and I recording the song in the studio, in the hope that it captures the intimacy of the performance and the love we both have for this beautiful song and our respect for the body of work Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots have given us. Rest In Peace Scott.” – Ashton Nyte (MGT)

“If this haunting cover doesn’t give you goosebumps, we don’t know what will”.. Alternative Corner magazine name ‘Atlanta’ track of the day: http://altcorner.com/trackoftheday/mgt-atlanta/

MGT is touring behind their recently released sophomore album, Gemini Nyte, which is available now from Cleopatra Records. The record features 13 songs written and recorded by guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (THE MISSION/PETER MURPHY) and vocalist Ashton Nyte (THE AWAKENING), plus drummer Paul Ferguson (KILLING JOKE) and a guest appearance by Burton C Bell (FEAR FACTORY) with additional appearances by Lol Tolhurst & Pearl Thompson (THE CURE).

The band’s touring lineup features Thwaite and Nyte along with bassist Richard Vernon (The Mission UK) with new recruit Jared Shavelson (BoySetsFire) on drums completing thelineup. Catch them on the road now with labelmate Jyrki69.

“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

“As a long time fan of The Cure, it is a true blessing to have Lol and Pearl add their magic to my favourite song on this album. Most grateful indeed!” – Ashton Nyte

In addition to the remix of “The Assembly Line,” MGT has also released an accompanying b-side, “All The Broken Things (Lol Tolhurst Remix).” Tolhurst adds, “I loved remixing “Broken Things,” such a beautiful track!”

“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.
