One of the UK’s best-loved bands, The Magic Numbers, are heading out on the road this autumn and will visit Dundalk’s very own Spirit Store on September 24.
On their first ever acoustic tour they will cover new ground by visiting a series of smaller towns such as Dundalk.
The band will play in the intimate surroundings of some of 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, 2010’s ‘The Runaway’, is to be expected early next year.
“We’ve always thought that you should approach every new release as if it’s the first thing you’ve ever done, “ said Romeo Stodart who plays lead guitar and vocals.
“It’s an intense period for us, making a record. We tend to shut ourselves off from the world.
“I’m really excited about the new album, it’s some of the best songs I’ve written so I’m anxious for people to hear it, especially for those who may have never had the chance to see us live before.”
The band, which was formed in 2002, consists of Romeo Stodart on lead guitar and vocals, his sister Michele on bass guitar, vocals and keyboard, Angela Gannon on melodica, percussion, glockenspiel and vocals and her brother Sean on drums.
They have released three studio albums to date, the first being their self titled debut album, ‘The Magic Numbers’ which was released in 2005, followed by ‘Those the Brokes’ in 2006, and their most recent album ‘The Runaway’ was released in 2010.
The band have also released a song titled ‘All I Believe In’, which features in the Twilight Saga,New Moon soundtrack.
Prepare to fall in love with The Magic Numbers all over again at their Spirit Store gig and if you haven’t yet had the pleasure, take a chance.
Tickets to the show are available now and are priced at 15 euros.
