The Norwegian prog rock band Magic Pie are finally back with their excellent new album “King For a Day” on Karisma Records on the 25th of May.
The band was formed in 2001, and their previous three albums “Motions of Desire” (2005), “Circus Of Life” (2007) and “The Suffering” (2011) was very well received by both the press and fans. All three albums will be re-issued by Karisma Records later this autumn on both cd and vinyl (for the first time).
