mute gods

The Mute Gods, a brand new band from the mind of renowned bassist, chapman stick player & vocalist Nick Beggs, have announced the release of their debut album through Inside Out.

Nick has most recently been involved with Steven Wilson’s solo band, both in the studio and on tour, whilst also playing live with legendary guitarist Steve Hackett as part of his Genesis Revisited run of shows. In recent years he has contributed to projects such as Lifesigns, Fish On Friday & Lonely Robot, as well as playing live with Rick Wakeman.  It seems a long way from his Kajagoogoo ‘Too Shy’ days.

In The Mute Gods, he’s joined by drummer Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson), and long-time Steve Hackett collaborator & keyboardist Roger King, they will release the full length ‘do nothing till you hear from me’ on the 22nd January 2016. They have now launched a video for the album’s title track directed by Crystal Spotlight which you can watch here:

Further to the above, you can check out a revolutionary 4K 360 degree version of the video for ‘Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me’ here.

Nick had this to say about the track: “The track was inspired by the speeches of General Dwight D. Eisenhower and his warning to the free world about the rise of the Independent Industrial Military Complex.”

The enigmatic artwork for the record was created by Lars ‘Zeituhr” Tellmann, which will arrive on a limited edition digipak CD (incl. bonus tracks), gatefold 2LP with CD & digital download. Track-listing below:
