Magenta Lane Begin First Cross-Country Tour

Published: 2005-01-10
Current Soul Shine interview subjects Magenta Lane are preparing to take their local buzz and spread it across the country. The Toronto trio will hit all the provinces in between Vancouver and Toronto, with a total of 14 performances scheduled in their future. Kicking off this Thursday (January 13th) in Thunder Bay, Ontario, the girls of Magenta Lane won't stop until they get back to Toronto for two gigs on February 24th and March 4th.

The band is out and about during the winter months on their very first Canadian tour in order to promote their debut EP 'The Constant Lover'. Released back in October 2004 through Paper Bag Records, the album features 6 tracks from the rockers. To hear three tracks from 'The Constant Lover' go to the band's official web site at: www.paperbagrecords.com/magentalane/.

Speaking to Soul Shine's Cameron Gordon, Magenta Lane singer Lexi Valentine expressed the band's reaction to the hype surrounding their debut: ""With so much attention off the one EP, it seems like the future of this band is already under a microscope. There's a certain amount of pressure to fulfill that potential, I guess."

Magenta Lane is brilliant. I can't get over how good the video is too. It's insane.
