Well, we've almost made it to July - not that you'd know from looking out of the window!
June turned out to be a rather delightful month for us here at Magpie HQ. Not only have we now all had our first jab, but we kicked things off with some lovely airplay of our new single - I Never Will Marry. Mike Harding said it was a 'cracking track'! And Mark Radcliffe not only gave it a good spin but also gave The Magpies Festival a very nice plug - 'well that sounds just about perfect'!
Speaking of the festival, we're happy to confirm that The Magpies Festival still plans to go ahead on Saturday 14th August, BUT we've made the decision to limit numbers at the festival, so we can be sure we're operating safely. We'll be operating at 50% of maximum capacity to accommodate social distancing and the site has been designed from the outset in a Covid-secure way, with all areas open-air and enough space for you all to swing as many cats as you'd like! If you haven't got your tickets yet, don't miss out!
In other news, we are VERY excited to have joined Midnight Mango and will be working with the fabulous Louise McGovern as our booking agent. And here she is. Get in touch with any bookings, we think she's great!
Friday was an especially exciting day for us. It was our first time playing in front of real life people this year! We joined Man the Lifeboats for a sold out show at The Water Rats AND not only that, but it was also our first time catching the train to a gig as a band. Here we are looking thrilled to be on our way to play some tunes!
If you missed us in London, don't panic, we're off on tour again in September (yippee!) and we're heading all over. Check out the full tour here and get your tickets! We can't wait!
And finally, to celebrate England's victory yesterday and inevitable impending glory (it's coming home!) we launched a half price t-shirt sale! Stylishly modelled here by Grandma Brandon last weekend - get yours from The Magpie Shop, for only £11!
Well, after that hefty tome of a newsletter, I think that's enough excitement for one day! We'll be back next month, but until then have a lovely July!
