Magenta recently followed in the footsteps of such rock legends as Rush, Queen and Hawkwind, by working at the legendary Rockfield studios in Monmouth, UK.

The band decided to finish off their soon to be released fourth album at the studios over the holiday period, assisted by renowned producer and engineer Tim Lewis.

On hearing the latest demos, the band’s label Tigermoth Records decided that the album warranted the level of production for which Rockfield has been renowned for many years.

"Some of the greatest music of the last 40 years has been recorded at Rockfield” says Rob Reed. “We were working in the same studio that Rush recorded ‘A Farewell to Kings’, and that Queen made ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. It was an amazing experience. It was also a real treat to work with Tim Lewis, as his contribution has been immeasurable and because of this, the new album has seen the band make a huge advancement both musically and technically".

Magenta's new album will be released early this year. Further details will follow very soon.

Been waiting for this one for a long time. Rob Reed has set the bar high and I can only hope this is somehow better than his previous Magenta work.  Great news. Clap
