Magnum name tour support

Liberty Lies have been announced as Magnum’s support on their upcoming December tour.

It’s the second time the five-piece have supported Bob Catley and co after being asked to open for the band in 2009.

Liberty Lies say in a statement: “Those of you who have been with us a while may remember Magnum gave us our first touring opportunity in 2009 – so it was an honour to be asked back once again.”

The West Midlands outfit released their debut album Reflections in 2013, and are currently in the studio laying down tracks for a four-track EP, which they hope to release later this year.

The band, who have their own shows lined up next month, were forced to postpone a run of dates in July after frontman Shaun Richards picked up a viral infection.
