Nick Beggs’ The Mute Gods have released a video for Nightschool For Idiots.

The track is lifted from the band’s debut album Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me, which was released earlier this year.

The promo follows Praying To A Mute God, Feed The Troll, Father, Daughter and title track Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me.

The project is led by bassist and singer Beggs, who has previously worked with Steven Wilson’s solo band and been a part of Steve Hackett’s Genesis Revisited shows. He is joined by Marco Minnemann and Roger King – Minnemann is also a member of Wilson’s band while King has worked with Hackett for years.

Beggs previously said he’s gauging the response to their album before deciding whether or not to tour.

He said: “I’m going to wait until the second album, which I’ve started working on, and see whether there’s an audience. If people are interested, that will have to be shown in sales or response to the material. It’s all very well making a record but I don’t want it to be a vanity project.”
