More information: This is the sixth studio album from Magenta and sees them return in spectacular form with six progressive rock epics.
“The new album has been five years in the making and I have tried to take the best elements of all the previous Magenta albums to craft the best collection of songs I could. I think this has been achieved and The Twenty Seven Club represents a return to our progressive rock roots” says Rob Reed, the main man behind the band.
The Twenty Seven Club refers to a large group of musician/singers (including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain) who all died at the age of 27, many from alcohol or drug abuse.
Joining Rob, Chris Fry (guitar) and Christina (vocals) on this occasion is drummer Andy Edwards. “For the last few years I have been very keen to work with Andy. I was a huge fan of his playing when he was with IQ and Frost*” adds Rob, “so when our schedules aligned, we went into the studio and the results were amazing. Andy was really enthusiastic about the album and his playing certainly reflects this”.
