Exciting Updates from Doom/Stoner Rockers The Magpie: New Video, Maryland Doomfest, and Road Break!

We are delighted to announce the release of the  new video for "The Sleepy Eye," a track from the Firelight Records debut last fall. 

Vocalist/guitarist Erik Sugg states, “The song began with a Flipper-esque bassline courtesy of Mike Deloatch. We built on his idea, added a lot of fuzz and heavy, atmospheric dynamics, and created something that’s both introspective and expansive.” Dive into the mesmerizing visuals and immersive sounds that characterize The Magpie's unique style.
