FORMERLY....THE MAGNUS PUTO

:: M A G N U S M A J O R ::

Punchy guitar riffs, weighty synths, relentless rhythm, MAGNUS MAJOR are a 6 piece from Bristol pioneering a unique electronic take on ska fused with elements of hip-hop and indie rock.

A SHORT HISTORY:
Although many of the band members were school mates from an early age, the band was formed whilst at University in Bristol; half of the band finding each other through a course in architecture. The band has since emerged from the basements of student housing to the bright lights of prominent UK stages.

After the release of their second EP Gettin’ Trouble in early 2013, MAGNUS MAJOR toured with Reel Big Fish during the UK leg of their World Tour. The jam packed summer saw them supporting the likes of The Beat and The Skints and sharing the stage with Fatboy Slim, The XX, Rizzle Kicks and By The Rivers on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury. Other highlights included playing the Town Centre stage at Boomtown, Secret Garden Party and Fistral Mainstage at Beach Break Live.

In late 2012 the band learnt the difficult news that Andy needed to have a serious brain operation. After a long recovery, the band began working on new material; one of which is their recent single ‘Feel So Good’. The band got back on the circuit and were tipped by 24-7 Magazine as one of the top 10 Bristol Bands to watch out for in 2014.

The summer of 2013 saw them on tour again with the Reel Big Fish and at many of the big UK festivals including Download, Boomtown, SecretGarden Party and Isle of White Festival.
