Magic Dirt announce Friends In Danger reissue

Magic Dirt have announced the reissue of their acclaimed 1996 debut album Friends In Danger, out Friday 9th July via Emergency Music / Remote Control Records.

Released in September 1996 and peaking at number 25 on the ARIA Charts, Magic Dirt’s debut album, Friends In Danger, ushered in a heavier and darker edge to the band which also polarised some press and fans alike due to the band’s previous chart topping more melodic offering with Life Was Better. Says Adalita at the time, “…It’s not like we set out to be different…we were always just doing it our own way”. Adds Dean, “When we started we were just doing what we thought was fun, rather than doing what you do to be successful. And I just thought that was how every band did it.” (John O’Donnell, Juice Magazine, 1996)

Magic Dirt would like to dedicate the Friends In Danger reissue to Dave Thomas, who sadly passed away in March 2020. His legacy will live on and Magic Dirt would like to acknowledge his incredible contribution to the Australian music scene and are especially indebted to him for his support and encouragement of the band in their early years.
