Renowned not only for their powerful rock songs but also for countless moving ballads, British rock icons MAGNUM are set to surprise their fans with a very special release at the very beginning of the coming year: The Valley Of Tears - The Ballads has been scheduled for release on 6 January 2017 (US/Canada: 20 January 2017), an album featuring ten of their most accomplished ballads, all of them re-mastered and in parts even newly re-recorded and remixed.

Guitarist, composer and producer Tony Clarkin: "The release of this album was originally inspired by my daughter. A few months ago she asked me: 'MAGNUM have so many beautiful quiet numbers, why don't you put together a compilation highlighting some of the most powerful tracks?' Olly Hahn of Steamhammer/SPV was immediately taken by the concept, so I set down to work on it."

The Valley Of Tears - The Ballads contains material from the band's different creative phases. Along with re-mastered versions of more recent ballads from albums such as Into The Valley Of The Moonkings, The Visitation and the current studio recording Sacred Blood - Divine Lies, there will also be a newly re-recorded acoustic version of their classic "Lonely Night" and a new haunting live version of their hit "When The World Comes Down" from their 1986 cult recording Vigilante.

The release will be supported by selected shows in the UK and Ireland during the run-up to Christmas and a German/Swiss tour where Tony Clarkin and Bob Catley join the "Rock Meets Classic" tour from 30 March 2017. Some more festivals for Summer 2017 will be announced shortly.

The Valley Of Tears - The Ballads will be released as a digipak version, download and stream on January 20th, 2017 in North America through SPV/Steamhammer.
