I checked in on this with their agent Merrick, this is what he had to say.
"The GT guys were always guys that had a lot going on outside the band. They were all incredibly intelligent and well educated. Mookie (vocals) was running Love Pump Records while GT were still playing. He put out break out records by bands like HEALTH. The label eventually mutated into We Are Free Management which is what he’s doing now. They’re responsible for several acts such as Darkside and Girl Talk. I still see him around quite a bit. Hamilton (guitar)’s father was actually the Chief of Staff to Jimmy Carter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamilton_Jordan He also wrote a couple one books, one particularly about surviving multiple forms of cancer that is very inspiring. However, during the length of the band he had gotten sick again and eventually passed away. Before his passing he had written but not finished a book about race relations and growing up in the Deep South. He was unable to finish it. So, when the band first went on hiatus a big part of that was Hamilton needing to finish this book. He also went on to be a lawyer and I believe he still lives in the Bay Area. Michael (Synths, etc) was in China for a long time teaching. Because of this I kind of missed out on a lot of what he was up to. I know he came back and was working as a teacher in New York since I got a job reference call on it several years ago! But, I haven’t heard much from him. I’m sure he’s doing something to make Earth a better place. As much as I was saddened to not get any more GT songs, its a story with a happy ending. Everyone is alive and well and no one dislikes one another. Sometimes life just pull in different directions.”
