PURSON TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM DESIRE’S MAGIC THEATRE ON MARCH 25, 2016 VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS
(New York, N.Y.): Purson welcome you to Desire’s Magic Theatre… a technicolor trip through the mind’s eye of songstress/vocalist /guitarist Rosalie Cunningham, whose signature approach to her craft stands boldly center stage, blending progressive dexterity and cabaret romp into a compelling, multi-faceted rock ‘n’ roll show.
The album will be released on March 25 via Spinefarm Records.
Desire’s Magic Theatre draws inspiration from the rock operas of the late ’60s and early ’70s; musically, visually and lyrically, it touches on a variety of realms, including folk, prog, psychedelic, gothic, and classic rock, making telling use of classical instruments and complex arrangements, and fully exploring the outer limits of reel to reel tape.
“Desire’s Magic Theatre has turned out to be everything I’d imagined and more,” said Cunningham. “My world has been so consumed by it that I’ve barely been able to reflect on what it has become: a technicolor variety show, a playful display of the musical whims only briefly hinted at in our previous work; a psychedelic rock opera dedicated to our good friends Sarge Pepper and Zig Stardust.”
Purson—Cunningham, George Hudson (guitars), Samuel Robinson (keyboards), Justin Smith (bass), Raphael Mura (drums)—recently returned from a six-week tour of North America Special Guesting with Ghost, following on from a stint on the Kiss Kruise IV, plus a sold-out Los Angeles debut at the notorious Viper Room.
