Following on from the success of the collaboration with Ville Valo (HIM) last year on the MGT cover of ABBA’s classic “Knowing Me Knowing You” (over 2M views on YouTube/300K plays on Spotify), former THE MISSION/Peter Murphy guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite has teamed up with vocalist Ashton Nyte of THE AWAKENING to create the upcoming album Gemini Nyte.

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

Mark Gemini Thwaite: "”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."

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.

The new single, “All The Broken Things”, will be accompanied by the digital B-Side remix of the track by Jürgen Engler of German post-industrial pioneers DIE KRUPPS.
