Magic Eight Ball / Bio

Magic Eight Ball are a rock n'roll band of many guises hailing from the southern counties of England. Formed in 2006, the band released several EPs and singles throughout their early years whilst touring constantly, then in 2013 through Magic Cat Records, Magic Eight Ball released their début album 'Sorry We're Late But We're Worth The Wait' featuring guest appearances from Jason Bowld (Bullet for My Valentine) and Donnie Vie, followed by their accompanying European Tour. The band then released their second album 'Last Of The Old Romantics' in 2014 featuring the late comedy legend that was Rik Mayall (The Young Ones/Drop Dead Fred) on the record, and they once again toured the album across the continent.

Lead singer Baz Francis also recorded with Donnie Vie on his 2014 live CD/DVD 'Goodbye' (released on Cargo Records UK), his last studio record 'The White Album' on that label too, then 'The Best of Donnie Vie' compilation, the pair's 'V8 Live In Europe 2015' EP (on Magic Cat Records Limited), and the V8 single 'Mrs Vandevelde' (on Dharma Bucks Records). With Francis then accompanying Vie on tour once more, this time on The White Album Tour of Europe (followed by a string of solo dates for him in the USA again), Magic Eight Ball returned to the studio to record their 3rd album with Dave Draper (The Wildhearts/Kerbdog). Magic Eight Ball's 'Richest Men In The Graveyard' LP was then released on 2nd May 2016 prior to this latest European Tour for the band.
