According to Blabbermouth.net, Influential British melodic hard rockers MAGNUM will release their 19th studio album, “Escape From The Shadow Garden”, on March 25 (one day earlier internationally) via Steamhammer/SPV. The effort will be 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).
MAGNUM bassist Al Barrow previously stated about “Escape From The Shadow Garden”: “It’s a killer album; you’re gonna love it. Very up-tempo, balls-to-the-wall guitars, lots of keyboards and Bob‘s [Catley] done some fantastic vocals. Tony [Clarkin, guitar] has surpassed himself once again with the songwriting. Harry [James, drums]… well, that goes without saying, he’s got us rocking our socks off.”
MAGNUM‘s last CD, “On The 13th Day”, came out in September 2012.
Three weeks after the release of “Escape From The Shadow Garden”, MAGNUM will kick off a huge European tour.
