New EP "WitchRock" - Why the title?

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since we last blogged. So I figured I'd get my ass to it because I wanted to share with you guys why we named the album WitchRock. Its important that you understand... It's not meant to be a contrived thing.

For this EP we were so blessed to get Rick and James to work on this album with us. We have so many of the same musical tastes - its crazy. We love those guys. We love them for understanding our message, our sound and most importantly our sense of humour. Just like our listeners. You guys who know us through our music, get it. We love you for that.

For the longest time ( almost 10 years now to be exact) - ML has always had a really hard time fitting into a genre (genres are bullshit lol). And sometimes we find it really hard to answer the question when we get asked - What are you?

Our response would be.. we are a rock band? indie rock band? I dunno.

We are 3 best friends (sisters really) who play music together and who are completely self taught. How do you categorize that? People are always so serious when they ask us that and we just crack jokes.

In the studio we were recording the album and the sound was changing and taking a life of its own. Again we were faced with having to put ourselves in a category... FUCK. lol

We sat there and scratched our heads thinking, "Well we don't even know what to call it anymore"

Being quite the satirical bunch that we are - Rick and James exclaimed "WitchRock!"... we had a good laugh. The genre was created.

We were finally part of something that was ours and now yours. And we hope you guys enjoy the journey with us.

For those of you who don't know the inside story...People ask us if we are witches all the time. Constantly.

We believe in a bit of everything.

Here's the new album trailer... ENJOY!!

Happy Holidays!

In time you'll drop dead and I'll come to your funeral in a red dress

Hey Everyone!

Magneta is back in the grind, yup new music is on the way. We want to update you guys on a number of things that are going on with the band! We've been really busy with a number of things.


Drake Hotel 4/20 SHOW!

ML will be sharing the stage with Low Level Flight at The Drake Hotel April 20th!! We will be playing our new songs off our upcoming EP. Tickets are $10 at the door and doors are at 8pm. We hit the stage at 9pm.

Hope to see you there! The night is young! Nadia created a pretty awesome poster for the show. Check it out below!

Witch Rock EP

Our Ep 'Witch Rock' has been pushed back to the summer. We felt that it sounded more like a summer record. The title Witch Rock was inspired by Rick and James (our producers) during recording. We sat there talking about music genres and how the EP didnt really fit in anywhere (always the black sheep haha) and so they created one for us,just for fun. We thought it perfectly tied in with the theme of our record, the celebration of our most inner villains. Nothing makes us more curious than a witch. The witch is the ultimate villain. The ultimate bad girl. And we celebrate her, in others and in ourselves.

The EP consists of four singles and will come out on Splendor House Records - our new record label. We are currently working on getting a trailer done for the first single, that should be out by the end of may with the official release date. We are also taking new promo pictures this month with the talented Stephanie Luong. Please view her works here :

1. Burn
2. Good For

Hey Everyone!

It has been a while since we sent our last update and we apologize for that! Our band email got spammed and crashed, so if you have been trying to reach us though email and we haven’t replied that is why. We have set up a new email where you can send us your questions or requests:

The band had a very low key 2011 but still a fun one playing TIFF, attending the Indie Awards, Indie Week, touring with Scottish band Glasvegas and a lot of other great moments. We took the time this year to sit down and re-evaluate what we were going to do with our next release. Sometimes time off can be a good thing, especially when making such an important decision. We have written and are continuing to write some new material but have decided on a new single. You guys will be able to hear the new track at the end of March/early April. The exact date TBA only because we are finalizing a couple of details in our plans so we want to make sure everything is executed with great timing.

The new ML single is called "Burn". Our sound has evolved and we are extremely excited to bring this forward to everyone. The Album (still debating on whether it will be an EP now or LP first) was produced by Rick and James of Finger 11. And they have tremendously helped us to grow as songwriters and have been so much fun to work with and will continue to work on the ML release with us this year. The release is being mixed and mastered by Jon Drew who at this point is the 4th member of Magneta Lane and has known us for almost a decade now.

We will also have touring news as the year moves along.

Please catch us on...
