With their fourth full-length album “King For A Day” set to be released on Karisma Records on the 25th May.
Norwegian Prog Rockers MAGIC PIE have debuted a music video for the opening track from the upcoming release on Prog Magazine – Team Rock. The video for “Trick Of The Trade” can be seen here.
Formed in Moss, Norway in 2001, MAGIC PIE have become a household name on the Prog Scene with their blend of Classic Prog and 70’s Hard Rock inspired by bands such as SPOCKS BEARD, DREAM THEATER, GENESIS, PINK FLOYD, THE FLOWER KINGS, TRANSATLANTIC, KANSAS, DEEP PURPLE, YES etc., and consequently “King For A Day” is an album that is very much anticipated by Prog fans.
With artwork by Chris van der Linden of Linden Artworks and mixed and mastered by Rich Mouser (SPOCKS BEARD, TRANSATLANTIC, NEAL MORSE, DREAM THEATER etc.) at The Mouse House Studios in Los Angeles, “King For A Day” contains six tracks of Prog Rock that is at times melodic and epic, and, at others, heavy, and showcases the band’s superb vocal harmonies and skilled musicianship. It is now available to pre-order direct from Karisma Records.
