Having been a band for less than year, this week’s featured artist, Magnificent Birds of Prey, are off to an excellent start. A full length album released, a retired champion of Band vs Band all before they played their first show. Not to mention they’ve held a spot in our Top 10 Countdown for 2 months straight.
While Magnificent Birds of PRey are relatively new, the members are all very experienced musicians and it shows on their self-titled release. This album is completely DIY, as MBOP are accomplished on both sides of the recording console. Sample a few tracks on magnificentbirdsofprey.com, and pick the album up on iTunes.
A few weeks ago Magnificent Birds of Prey played their first show. It was a successful night at Connie’s Ric Rac, and this Saturday they plan on doing it again. Saturday, April 20th at Finnegan’s Wake join us for Magnificent Birds of Prey, The Lost Will Follow, Autolyze and Sweet Eureka. The show starts at 9pm, and MBOP will have only 50 physical copies of the new album available.
Magnificent Birds of Prey will be in heavy rotation all week. You can still hear them in the Top 10 Countdown (everyday at 5pm and 5am ET) and we’ll play a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weekdays 6pm ET). Make sure you tune in, vote and join us at Finnegan’s Wake this Saturday!
