The Magic Whip
16 years after their last record as a four-piece, 27th April 2015 sees the release of the band’s eighth studio album, titled The Magic Whip. The recordings, which began during a five-day break in touring in Spring 2013 – at Avon Studios in Kowloon, Hong Kong – were put aside when the group finished touring and returned to their respective lives. Last November Graham revisited the tracks and, drafting in the band’s old friend and early producer Stephen Street, he worked with the band on the material. Damon then added lyrics and the 12 tracks of The Magic Whip are the result.
