The Magpies Announce UK tour and release new single ‘I Never Will Marry’

The band will hit the road this September.

The Magpies have released their new single ‘I Never Will Marry’ and they’ve announced a 16-date UK tour for September.

‘I Never Will Marry’ is the band’s first release since their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Tidings’, which was released in 2020.

Atmospheric and dark, scattered with blistering instrumentals, powerful female harmonies and stomping rhythm, ‘I Never Will Marry’ is a traditional tale of lost love, handed down from woman to woman over the centuries, polished and honed with each telling: ‘take my hand and sing free’.

The accompanying new video is beautifully cinematic and yet flawlessly simple; an aesthetic reinforcement of the simultaneity of isolation and togetherness.
