Magnum detail new album Lost On The Road To Eternity


Magnum have revealed details of what will be their 20th studio album.

It’s titled Lost On The Road To Eternity – and it will be released on January 19 via Steamhammer/SPV and is the follow-up to 2016’s Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies.

The record sees vocalist Bob Catley, guitarist Tony Clarkin and bassist Al Barrow joined by new drummer Lee Morris and keyboardist Rick Benton – the latter joining the veteran UK outfit following the departure of Mark Stanway, who quit in December 2016 after 36 years with the band.

A statement on the new album reads: “Lost On The Road To Eternity contains 11 new songs, among them Without Love and a duet by Catley and Tobias Sammet on the title track – a kind of artistic thank you by the Edguy/Avantasia frontman in appreciation of Catley’s guest stint on a number of Sammet’s releases.”

The cover artwork was once again designed by Rodney Matthews and the album will include a bonus disc containing four live tracks.

Magnum have also announced a UK and European tour in support of the new album, which will follow their appearance at Minehead’s Giants Of Rock on January 26.
