The Magic Numbers
Thu 01 Jan 1970
One of the UKs best-loved bands, The Magic Numbers, are heading out on the road this autumn.
On their first ever acoustic tour they will cover new ground by visiting a series of smaller towns. The band will play in the intimate surroundings of some the most beautiful theatres, churches and live music venues across the UK and Ireland.
Alongside all the old favourites, the band will be premiering new material from their forthcoming fourth album and connecting with the audience through question-and-answer sessions. Breaking away from the usual venues and big cities allows the band to reach out to a new audience.
The as-yet-untitled follow up to their third album, 2010s The Runaway, is to be expected early next year.
Weve always thought that you should approach every new release as if its the first thing youve ever done. Its an intense period for us, making a record we tend to shut ourselves off from the world. Im really excited about the new album, its some of the best songs Ive written so Im anxious for people to hear it, especially for those who may have never had the chance to see us live before.
Prepare to fall in love with The Magic Numbers all over again and if you haven’t yet had the pleasure, take a chance!
‘This London six-piece’s life-affirming melodies will remind you why you fell in love with pop.’
‘The way that Goldheart Assembly write a chorus that wouldn’t sound out of place at midnight on the Pyramid Stage suggests this is a band with the whole world ahead of them.’
‘Such is the inherent sweetness of Goldheart Assemblys debut that the listener cant fail to be touched by its charms.’
Goldheart Assemblys James Dale & John Herbert have been announced as main support on the Magic Numbers forthcoming acoustic tour. The pair will acoustically perform tracks from their second album, Long Distance Song Effects, which is released through New Music Club on Monday July 1st 2013.
The acoustic dates follow the bands own U.K. headline shows in July
The start of 2011 saw them play a sold out show at Londons Scala in April, complete their first U.S tour, including a slot at that years SxSW Festival and make a high-profile appearance on the Last Call with Carson Daly TV show. Most recently, at the end of 2012, they completed a low-key residency at Londons Sebright Arms and a European tour with Band of Horses.
