Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

There are few great bands on our planet that can be infallibly identified within the first few bars of one of their songs. With unique melodic skill, tasteful instrumentation, an amazing balance of depth and catchiness, and, of course, that charismatic voice, British rock band Magnum is one of them.

The quintet, consisting of frontman Bob Catley and guitarist/songwriter Tony Clarkin, keyboardist Rick Benton, bassist Dennis Ward, and drummer Lee Morris, will release a new studio album, “Here Comes The Rain”, on January 12, 2024, via Steamhammer/SPV.

Today the band has shared the lyric video for the album’s second single “The Seventh Darkness”. The song includes amazing brass sections courtesy of guest musicians Chris ‘BeeBe’ Aldridge (saxophone) and Nick Dewhurst (trumpet), which lend the track brilliance and shape. 

Tony Clarkin had this to say about The Seventh Darkness“: ““The recordings were great fun, especially the moment when Chris’s sax took the lead and my guitar responded. A real highlight on this album!”

The album’s highly inspired artwork is once more designed by the great Rodney Matthews, who has already created several Magnum sleeves to support the band’s atmospherically dense music. Says Tony Clarkin: “The back cover features a kind of avian battalion in attack mode, which I think is a great allegory!”

“Here Comes The Rain” sees the Magnum lineup, once again succeed in creating an outstanding, colorful, varied, and inspired new studio album.

“Everyone played their part without me dictating anything,” Clarkin enthuses, “everyone just instinctively played what their inspiration told them.”
