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’.

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.

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.
