MAGIC CASTLES are pleased to announce their upcoming 2023 UK / EU Spring Tour. The band is set to return overseas for the first time since 2015 for a psychedelicized three week whirlwind in May.

Minneapolis’ musician Jason Edmonds started self releasing music as Magic Castles in the late aughts, and has since refined his dreamy take on psychedelic music, creating a lush Byrdsian soundscape that has grown more clear and direct over time. The band was discovered by Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2011 who started releasing the Magic Castles’ albums on his own label “A” Recordings LTD. The Magic Castles toured the east coast US with The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2012. In 2013-14, the band crisscrossed the US several times, and in 2015 traveled abroad for a successful tour of Europe and UK. In November of 2019 Jason Edmonds was injured in a serious car accident, which triggered an outpouring of support from the arts community in Minneapolis, and fans of the band abroad, to help pay for his medical bills.

Eventually, after the pandemic production delays, the album „Sun Reign“ was released in May of 2021 to wide acclaim. The limited gold pressing on 180g vinyl quickly sold out, and the single​ “Lost Dimension” was featured in a season 3 episode of the Emmy award winning HBO series „Succession“ in November 2021. A repress on 180g black vinyl is now available. The Magic Castles also made an exciting return to stage in 2021 & 22, with new guitarist Izaak Drew and bassist Kristof Marden refreshing the band’s sound. In 2022 The Magic Castles opened for The Brian Jonestown Massacre for ten dates of their 2022 US tour, as well as touring with The Warlocks on a run through the Midwest before heading into the renown Pachyderm studios to work on their next album. The band is currently preparing for the upcoming 2023 spring UK/EU tour.
