MAGNUM Begins Recording New Album

British melodic rock icons MAGNUM have entered Mad Hat Studios in Staffordshire, England to begin recording their new album for a tentative early 2016 release. Singer Bob Catley revealed via a video message posted on the band's Facebook page that the follow-up to 2014's "Escape From The Shadow Garden" is "sounding pretty good so far. Tony Clarkin is doing some guitar parts and I'll be doing some singing pretty soon when he's got some lyrics for me. I think it's going to be a really strong, rocking album as usual."

He added: "The album will be coming out early next year, maybe February, and then we'll be on tour straight away."

MAGNUM will release a new live album, "Escape From The Shadow Garden - Live 2014", through SPV/Steamhammer in Scandinavia on May 6, in Germany on May 8, in the rest of Europe on May 11 and in the USA on May 12 as a super jewel case version, double gatefold vinyl version and as a digital download. The CD was recorded in the spring of 2014 at select venues on MAGNUM's successful "Escape From The Shadow Garden" European tour. The setlist includes songs from seven of MAGNUM's eighteen studio albums.

"Escape From The Shadow Garden" was released in March 2014 via Steamhammer/SPV. The effort was made available as a limited digipak edition with bonus material, as a double colored vinyl LP, standard jewel case CD and download. The cover artwork was once again created by famous fantasy artist Rodney Matthews (ASIA, NAZARETH, ELOY).
