New album "Bad Lucky" out now

We're very pleased to announce that our new record is out now!

"The Magnificent trades in punk rock tunes of the highest order and does so seemingly with ease, creating a body of work that is fresh and relevant to the 21st century whilst not forgetting the past. You can ignore the comparisons to bands like the Clash and Leatherface (or anyone I might have mentioned), the Magnificent needs to be accepted for being themselves. A final thing that cannot be overlooked it that they also have one of the best guitar sounds I’ve heard in years--it’s a total joy to hear." - Punk News

Vinyl versions:
Available in the UK from Drunken Sailor.
Available in Japan from Eager Beaver.
Available in the USA from Dirt Cult.

Available on CD from Just Say No To Government Music.

Available as download only from us here!

There is a lot of global unrest at the moment, and people of our generation don’t know what to do with their lives. This album is about how a generation struggles to emulate the feats of their parents, ‘the baby boomers’. Everyone is poor these days and everyone struggles to meet the cost of living. The album is about being born into a world ruled by economics that no-one truly understands or has control of.

New split 7" with Elway - out now!

Hey! Happy New Year! We live in prolific times! We're so proud to announce another split 7" release, this time with the amazing Elway from the US of A.

Here's what the label says:

"Poor old John Elway still hasn't got his way and Elway the band are here to stay! The kind of music you associate with a sweaty Gainesville house show, an energetic punch of Lawrence Arms influenced melodic "gruff" punk with thoughtful lyrics and a hint of swing for good measure.

The Magnificent are from the North of England and play up straight up punk rock. For those who haven't heard them before, think of the distinctive English Clash sound mixed with modern US influences such as The Bomb or The Methdaones. Talking of The Bomb, you might recognise the second song!

You'll find yourself singing along to each of these songs in no time!

As ever it comes with screen-printed covers, colour vinyl and a free download code."

Order it here from All in Vinyl. It's a limited run (300) so act now!

Thanks big time to David for making this happen, it's been a long road!
