Hungry Audio are proud to announce we are releasing the new album by Magoo, The Continuing Adventures is out on July 23rd.
After some time in hibernation the psychedelic guitar crunching pop fury that is Magoo are back with their long-awaited sixth album. ‘The Continuing Adventures’ is a return to the foot-on-amp, riff-ridden, guitar-searing, psychedelic noise-rock anthems that are reminiscent of Magoo’s early work but with crisp, powerful production adding a fresh modern edge. Stylish and often ahead of their time,’ The Continuing Adventures’ showcases the dirtier, noisier personality of the schizophrenic beast that is Magoo whilst maintaining their pure pop sensibilities with strong, catchy melodies and harmony running throughout. From The Monks inspired riff-laden garage pop of ‘Bubblegum’ to the epic guitar battles of ‘Force 10 From Navarone’, this is non-stop alternative guitar pop at its best.
The band began in their early teens and have gone on to play alongside the likes of Ash, Snow Patrol, Mogwai, Guided By Voices, Arab Strap and The Delgados and have released tracks on labels including Glasgow’s coolest Chemikal Underground, Beggars Banquet, Rough Trade, Fierce Panda, Elefant, Series 8 and Global Warming.
After various line-up changes and with seven Peel Sessions, countless radio plays, U.S and European shows, slots at Glastonbury and Exit festivals plus Radio 1 Live in Newcastle under their belts, Magoo are back stronger, catchier and louder than ever before.
The Continuing Adventures Of Magoo was recorded at their own Sickroom Studios which has been home to many groundbreaking acts over the years including Bearsuit and The Broken Family Band, and is currently working with up and coming artists Factory Floor, Mary Epworth, Young British Artists, Hello Bear and Alto 45 amongst others.
