The Magic Gang confirm sophomore album 'Death of The Party'

Woohoo! The Magic Gang have finally confirmed the details of their brand new album!

Following their 2018 self-titled debut, ‘Death of The Party’ is set to land on 15th May, and the lads are giving us a lil’ taste of what to expect with previously released banger ‘Think’ and brand spanking new indie-pop stomper ‘What Have You Got To Lose’.

The first two glimpses into the new record, we met up with them to chat Album Two in December, which you can revisit here. As guitarist and vocalist Jack Kaye explains “We’re in different places and dealing with different things, and as we get further into our twenties, so our importance lands on different subjects. I think our characters come through independently now. These songs sound like our respective diary entries rather than one uniform message.” “The main thing on this next record is that we were thinking more about lyrical content and trying to be a bit more attainable and relatable rather than just writing vague sentiments of love,” bassist Gus adds.

Check out the new track and record track list below.
