So hey there boys and girls – are you sitting comfortably? Ready to be get all excited and get your heart racing by some new magnificent news from the wonderful music world of Dr Magwire
Big US management In De Goot just recently picked up really cool band FIND VIENNA for representation, this band released a much solid 8 song album “In Your Favorite Colors” in 2009 and are right now in progress of recording new material to be launched early 2012.
Former Evanescence member David Hodges which is a magnificent songwriter and also worth attention for his other band project such as Trading Yesterday, The Age Of Information and now also with ARROWS TO ATHENS who just released their debut album “Kings & Thieves” , David Hodges was signed to Warner for a solo deal a few years ago (just got one ep “The Rising” released) and this solo thing eventually became Arrows To Athens. At this point is the album just available in digital form – but lets hope as a old fashioned collector that we see physical copies in the new year – a great album so check it out.
Speaking of Trading Yesterday and The Age of Information, the band also incl. Steven McMorran and Josh Dunahoo, who nowdays is partners with former SR-71 main man Mitch Allan in the band SATELLITE, who released a ep “Ring the Bells” a year or so ago – They are now all preparing having the bands first full length ready to drop early 2012.
