Purson sign Magic Theatre deal

Purson have signed to Spinefarm Records for the launch of second album Desire’s Magic Theatre, they’ve confirmed.

The follow-up to 2013’s The Circle And The Blue Door will be launched later this year, following a UK tour and an appearance at Download.

Vocalist Rosalie Cunningham says: “Our second album has turned out to be everything I’d imagined – and more.

“It’s become a technicolour variety show; a playful display of the musical whims only briefly hinted at in our previous work; a psychedelic rock opera dedicated to Sarge Pepper and Zig Stardust.

“I give thanks to everyone who’s bought a Purson record or been to our shows – and you have our promise that the best is yet to come.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
