MAGNUM Interviewed In Hamburg (Video)

On October 26, conducted an interview with hugely influential British melodic hard rockers MAGNUM when they played at at Fabrik in Hamburg, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.

MAGNUM released its eighteenth studio album, "On The 13th Day" on September 19 in Scandinavia, September 21 in Germany, September 24 in the rest of Europe and September 25 in the U.S./Canada via on Steamhammer/SPV. A single, "So Let It Rain", preceded the full-length CD at the end of August.

"On The 13th Day" was made available as a limited digipak edition with a bonus CD featuring unreleased, acoustic and live tracks from the MAGNUM vaults, plus as a double colored vinyl LP, standard jewel case CD and download. The cover was once again created by famous fantasy artist Rodney Matthews (ASIA, NAZARETH, ELOY).

"On The 13th Day" follows the success of "The Visitation", which charted at #19 in Germany, #46 in Sweden, #55 in the U.K. and #56 in Switzerland at the end of January 2011. "On The 13th Day" also picks up where "The Visitation" left off, boasting 11 soaring, brand new totally epic rock songs packed with hook-filled choruses, glorious flowing melodies, luscious keyboards and flowing guitar licks. Right from the opening track, "All The Dreamers" (set to be the new "Sacred Hour"), you get an instant feeling that this album has something very special to offer. "So Let It Rain", the first single to be taken from "On The 13th Day", will without a doubt soon be officially classified as "classic," while "Dance Of The Black Tattoo", which, from the moment the first drum beats crash out of the speakers, mesmerizes from start to finish.

One month after the release of "On The 13th Day", MAGNUM set off on a 31-date European tour.
