The upcoming 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.
Watch the video for “Every Little Dream”
““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 THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN and post punk. I reapproached and recorded the guitars in a much heavier punky vibe, also adding some lead guitars 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
The band has also announced a special West Coast album release tour with labelmate JYRKI 69, the frontman for multi-platinum selling Finnish goth n’ rollers THE 69 EYES who released his debut solo album on Cleopatra last year. Dates are listed below.
