“We enjoyed adding our light and shade to MGT’s new album with our contributions to the “Assembly Line” – getting us warmed up for our further adventures this year too!” – Lol Tolhurst and Pearl Thompson

“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.

Happy New Year everyone! My MGT solo album is now mixed and mastered and with the record label, featuring guest vocals from a host of stars including Ville Valo of H.I.M, Wayne Hussey of The Mission, Miles Hunt and Erica of The Wonder Stuff, Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders/Thin Lizzy, Saffron from Republica, Ashton Nyte of The Awakening, Raymond Watts of PIG/Primitive Race to name a few.. more news on that to come very soon.. meanwhile Check out the REGEN interview below..

In the meantime I’ll be touring the UK later this month with my good friend Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders, Thin Lizzy and The Almighty.. Recently guested on his fantastic solo album, which now gets a release through Nuclear Blast on 24th Feb.. check out the latest single and video with MGT below..

The first of these two albums is entitled “When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)”, which features ‘Toffee Town’ with MGT on lead guitar.. The release also boasts an array of acclaimed musicians, with guests such as Joe Elliott (DEF LEPPARD), Damon Johnson (THIN LIZZY, BLACK STAR RIDERS), Andy Cairns (THERAPY?), Billy Morrison (BILLY IDOL), Nathan Connolly (SNOW PATROL), Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns (STIFF LITTLE FINGERS) and Richard Fortus (GUNS N’ ROSES). The second is an acoustic album called “Hearts on Trees”. Ricky & MGT have also recorded an acoustic version of the Iron Maiden classic ‘Wrathchild’, which is featured on Ricky’s ‘Stairwell Troubadour’ pledge album:  “Just when you think there couldn’t be any more surprises, he reworks Iron Maiden’s ‘Wrathchild’ into a stunning, flamenco-tinged ballad which will surely go down as one of the best cover versions ever laid down” (UBER ROCK magazine)

To support this release, Ricky has put together THE FIGHTING HEARTS, a band who pull no punches. On drums is Gary Sullivan from one of his post Almighty bands, (sic). On bass, his Black Star Riders’ band mate Robbie Crane, and Guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite completing  the lineup. “Having previously played for such luminaries as THE MISSION and Peter Murphy, Mark added that special something that made the whole band gel.” (Ricky Warwick)
