Alex Lifeson guests on The Mute Gods' 'Atheists and Believers' available Friday

The Mute Gods' new album Atheists and Believers hits stores this Friday, March 22nd.  The follow-up to 2017’s Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth, Nick Beggs, Roger King and Marco Minnemann are joined on this their third album by guest performers Alex Lifeson, Craig Blundell, Rob Townsend and Beggs’ daughter Lula on vocals.

Earlier this month, MetalExpressRadio.com shared a new interview with bassist Nick Beggs where he discussed working with Lifeson:
"I'd worked on the 2112 re-release where we did a version of Twilight Zone. He came to the shows and we hung out and kept in contact. He was really up for contributing to the record. He was such a lovely man and a very funny man too....I'd recorded all of the guitar parts already [for 'One Day'] and I told him to do whatever he wanted. If he wanted to replace the guitar parts then he could but he did something completely different. He added Mandola, ambient guitar and 12-string acoustic and I liked so much what he'd done on the outro, that I edited it and made a whole new intro for the song so the first thing you hear is Alex strumming a 12-string guitar and me singing 'Life is a chemical reaction'. His chord inversions made the whole thing sing and that effected the way I arranged it in the end. I`d like to feature him more."
The video for the Mute Gods new single 'One Day' featuring Alex Lifeson is available below.
