Bard was a professional poet in medieval Gaelic and British culture. Many hundreds of years later, The Mighty Bard reappears with the prog band The Mighty Bard and they released new music and the track with the good suitable name Magician.
The Mighty Bard will release two further singles in the run up to the release of the album Beyond The Gate. A video for Magician will be released shortly.
Magician is taken from the band’s upcoming new album, Beyond The Gate, which will be released in October. It also marks the debut of vocalist Benji, who joined the band in 2018.
Benji says, «I’m really excited to be a part of the renaissance of the Bard after we collectively spent far too long writing and noodling versus getting some of these great tunes out to the Progressive world, who also wrote the lyrics for the new song. Prog has always been my first love, and in Magician, I hope our fans will get the same happy place feeling I have when giving it a spin».
Guitarist and founder member Dave Clark adds, «We’ve gone a bit quiet of late, but the release of Magician draws a line in the sand on our lack of activity,. We can’t wait to release new music in the months to come, and I hope the unique and eclectic mix of music on Beyond The Gate, starting with Magician, will make up for the amount of time we’ve spent away».
