Circus Maximus and Leverage Members Form New Band, The Magnificent

CIRCUS MAXIMUS singer Michael Eriksen and finnish producer/guitarist Torsti Spoof (LEVERAGE) have decided to join forces together in a new band project under The Magnificent moniker. Other musicians scheduled to appear on the album include Kalle Torniainen of Brother Firetribe on drums and Pekka Lampinen of Leverage on bass.

Songwriting is well underway and sees contributions also from Pekka Heino (BROTHER FIRETRIBE, LEVERAGE), Tomppa Nikulainen (BROTHER FIRETRIBE), Tuomas Heikkinen (LEVERAGE) and Sami Hyde and others. Soundwise the album will sound like a cross between the heavier approach of Leverage with the hooks and melodies of Brother Firetribe. The recording will be completed during the winter, with Frontiers looking to release the debut album after the summer 2010.
