I hope you all enjoyed the Howard Leese interview, I have another soon to be finished thanks to a very close friend, whose also been helping me out.
Sorry this is brief, I'm finishing up the dayjob in place and getting buried in stuff before I leave, then I start at a new place on Monday, so even more limited time here with all that on top of the usual.
Hugely influential British melodic hard rock group MAGNUM have confirmed the release of their upcoming eighteenth studio album. The album 'On The 13th Day' will be released by Steamhammer/SPV on September 19th in Scandinavia, September 21st in Germany, September 24th in Europe and September 25th in the US/Canada. "So Let It Rain", a new track taken from the album, will be released as a single at the end of August.
The artwork was once again created by famous fantasy artist Rodney Matthews. (Asia, Nazareth, Eloy).
Maybe it simply allows him a little creative freedom, who knows?
