October of this year also sees the release of the live album, "Another Time, Another Place". This is to be a double album and comes in at over 110 minutes. It has all the classic Magenta songs in all their glory and with extended sections. There is also a bonus track "The White Witch" off "Revolutions" that is played in its entirety for the first time since April last year. It is the first time Allan has played the song in its full glory since he joined the band. The tracks were taken from various gigs over the past year and will prove to be a real stomper of a live album. Watch for a special offer soon.

Finally recording has started for the all new Magenta single which will be released in November of this year. This will contain 2 brand new songs that will rock your socks off plus some unreleased bonus tracks. A must have for all music fans.
