MAGNUM – ‘Sacred Blood Divine Lies Winter Tour’ Dates Announced5th August 2016
Mighty British melodic hard rock group Magnum, whose new studio album ‘Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies’ crashed in to the UK national album chart at number 31 in March – the band’s highest top 40 album chart position since 1992 – have lined up a 5 date UK & Irish tour in December. Dates are:-
December 6th BRIGHTON Concorde 2
December 7th CAMBRIDGE Junction
December 9th DUBLIN Voodoo Lounge
December 10th WOLVERHAMPTON Wulfrun Hall
December 11th EDINBURGH Liquid Rooms
‘Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies’, which also debuted at number 2 in the Rock & Metal chart and at number 6 in the Indie chart on release on Steamhammer / SPV, is a notably heavier, harder offering than its much acclaimed predecessor, ‘Escape From The Shadow Garden’, and is packed with even more of Magnum’s massive trademark rousing rock melodies.
Powerplay Magazine’s Dave Cockett awarded the album 10/10 in his review in the magazine’s February 2016 issue, stating “Thumping opener and title track ‘‘Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies’ has a mesmerizing beat and a chorus that is simply to die for…classic Magnum! The equally engaging ‘Twelve Men Wise And Just’ is another track echoing with sentiment and ringing with majesty, whilst the likes of ‘Gypsy Queen’ with its superbly contrasting light and shade, the perfectly understated ‘Your Dreams Won’t Die’ and pomptastic ‘A Forgotten Conversation’ are all destined to become cherished Magnum staples. A superb album from a band with no peers, this is simply glorious”.
