Tigermoth Records are pleased to announce that the long overdue new Magenta album ‘We Are Legend’ will be released on April 20th 2017.

The album features 3 tracks, opening with the epic ‘Trojan’ which runs in at 26 minutes with ‘Colours’ and ‘Legend’ being the remaining songs. The CD will be accompanied by a DVD containing the whole album in 5.1 surround sound plus interviews and performance videos.

Rob Reed says:
“I always think that modern albums are too long. I love the format of the classic prog albums of the 70’s which were around 40-50 minutes, side one having a long epic and side 2 two containing two shorter tracks. Yes made ‘Relayer’ and ‘Close to the Edge’ in that format.”

‘We Are Legend’ can be pre-ordered now at
www.magenta-web.com

Cardiff - The Globe - March 31st

CRS Wath - Montgomery Hall - April 1st

Bilston - The Robin 2 - April 2nd

London - Boston Music Room - April 8th

Southampton - Talking Heads - April 9th

St.Helens - The Citadel - May 13th

It's got to be Rob Reed who mixed the album in 5.1 surround.
I hope it's DVDA-V but we'll just have to wait and see.

You're correct (sorry;))... Chameleon is the one I'm missing (and is also the only one NOT available in surround on the Magenta website:()
...time to start searching!

Loosely related question: Has anyone heard the mix on the live DVD by Magenta "Chaos From The Stage"?

Yes! I play tested it. It's a great mix and superb sound quality for a live album, but it's pretty much "ambient" surround rather than discrete.

"We Are Legend", however, is fully discrete, completely immersive and a truly great work-out for your surround system! :banana:
Pretty much as you would expect from Rob. :)

You wouldn't happen to know if this release is DVDA-V or just DVD-V would you? ;)

Have any of you that have pre-ordered received acknowledgement of your order? I ask as I ordered 3 cd/dvd sets from them over a week ago and paid via PayPal, to date I have not received discs or even an acknowledgement of order. Tried ringing the number on the PayPal confirmation and that is an unrecognised number have also left a message on the contact form via the website and have received nothing from that either. Don't want to start a dispute via PayPal without trying other options first.

I suspect that you haven't received any discs because it's not released until April 20th! :)

The web site/shop is run by Rob and a few friends - it's very much a "one man band" and I know he's been *very* busy trying to meet release deadlines. I would suggest chilling out until after the release.

Edit: I just realised that you may have ordered older albums? What exactly did you order? :)

I did not order we are legend I ordered three previous releases which show as in stock! was just trying to see if people who placed the pre-orders actually received an acknowledgment as I hadn't but now you say he is very busy I will try and relax:chill
I actually ordered seven, twenty seven club and metamorphosis cd/dvd sets.

Okay, thanks for the clarification. I'll pass that on to Rob.
Many thanks Neil I suppose the concern was that having ordered and paid on 21/3 and now on 30/3 no order acknowledgement, no despatch notice, no discs ( today's post has been ) and not knowing how they operate I start to wonder if they may have got lost in post, or if order has been received ok. The frustrating thing is I could have got two of the three from Amazon with free next day delivery (and one of the disks is cheaper) but I am ok with that as long as I know all is in hand.

As you all know, I'm a huge fan of the 5.1 format, and committed to releasing all my catalogue in the format.
We Are Legend is available on the DVD-V mixed in DTS and DD... the album was recorded/mastered in 24bit 44.1...so no point in 24/96.
But I can assure you the DTS sounds great....also I'm more than happy to offer a download of FLAC or raw 24/44.1 wavs to anybody who buys the album, and contacts me with proof of purchase...
Im about to offer ALL (Magenta/Kompendium/Solo,etc) the back catalogue in 5.1 FLAC as digital downloads...Info to follow.
thanks
ROB REED
