Fans of British rock band Magnum will have to wait just a little longer before they finally get their hands on the much-anticipated new studio album… Titled The Monster Roars, it will be released 14 January 2022.

But there will be new music from the band this year: guitarist Tony Clarkin, singer Bob Catley and their comrades in arms Rick Benton (keyboards), Dennis Ward (bass) and Lee Morris (drums) have already announced a couple of singles: With the forthcoming I Won’t Let You Down (including lyric video), out on 12 November 2021, Magnum present a typically deep melodic mid tempo song featuring a memorable chorus with stylish string accompaniment for added lustre. This will be followed five weeks later, on 17 December 2021, by a second pre-release track, No Steppin’ Stones, also including a lyric video.

The Monster Roars features twelve new songs in total, with a few little surprises thrown in! On top of the regular disc, Magnum are releasing a limited box set with three extra bonus tracks, including a new version of Days Of No Trust, the opener of the 1988 album classic Wings Of Heaven, a new remastered version of Sweets For My Sweet, the very first single of their career from 1975, and a previously unreleased track from the same era. And from March 2022, the band will finally be returning to Europe for a major tour (see below for dates).
