Magnum, who regularly breached the Top 40 of both the singles and album charts in the 80s and early 90s, came together in the Midlands in the mid-70s and released their debut album Kingdom Of Madness in 1978. However it was 1988's Wings Of Heaven LP which really broke the band into the mainstream, going gold, breaching the top 5 of the UK chart and spawning 3 top 30 singles - Days Of No Trust, Start Talkin' Love and It Must Have Been Love.

The band show no signs of slowing down haivng released their 20th Studio album Lost on the Road to Eternity in 2018. The album crashed into the Indie Album Chart at #1 and the UK national album chart at #15, was made ‘Album Of The Month’ by Powerplay magazine, writer Martin Howell stating that “This is classic Magnum, only more so. The band sound re-invigorated, they’ve taken all the elements that make Magnum so special and magnified them, and the result is really something spectacular…seriously this is incredible…Tony Clarkin has written some of the best material of his career. There are so many little touches, intricate parts, harmony vocals, making this a masterclass in songwriting. 10/10”
