Thank you to everyone who ordered vinyl copies of EP3.
The expected delivery date was not until the first week of July but things are obviously shifting in the EU pressing plants again and we’ve just been updated that it will actually be arriving in the UK on the 31st of May, so we will get your copy out to you as soon as possible after that.
The two fundraising songs from our Live At The Silk Mill sessions are now available to download from our Bandcamp site here for the grand sum of £1.50 (or pay more if you want) and ALL proceeds will be going to our favourite charities.
One of these is Social Bite, a charity based in Edinbugh, that does incredible work to tackle homelessness and counts George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio as customers to their unique cafe!
Please check them out at https://social-bite.co.uk/ and help us to support them, and all for less than the price of a cup of coffee!
When The Magpie Arc formed in 2019 the wonderful people at The Silk Mill Recording Studios in Stafforshire, UK filmed two videos of us for free, which gave us a lovely publicity boost and kick-started the band.
To return that karma we are releasing the audio tracks of Autumn Leaves and Darling Charms from those live sessions together on Bandcamp this Friday as a “pay what you want” download with 100% of the proceeds going to our favourite charities.
Please check out our site here to buy them on Friday and feel free to share this round your social media and friends.
Let’s see what we can raise for some good causes folks.
We’re overjoyed at these three finally being together, and as tomorrow is “Bandcamp Friday”, which is the day of the month that our sales platform Bandcamp waive all their revenue from artists, then tomorrow would be a particularly good time for us if you’d like to buy any of them!
Thank you to everyone who bought EP3 and for your patience with your CD orders!
Sadly, deliveries to the UK from European pressing plants have slowed to a crawl due to “enhanced customs checks” as a result of you know what, so we’re afraid the despatch date to you will now be next week.
Apologies again, but we will have CD’s out to you as soon as we receive them.
In the meantime if you are still to buy it either on download, 10″ coloured vinyl or CD then you can order here.
Our third EP is released today to celebrate Bandcamp Friday and is now available to buy on download only, CD and limited edition 10″ violet coloured vinyl here

For those asking, in order to bundle items on our sales platform Bandcamp, all you have to do after you’ve added an item to the cart is browse any other item you would like and add that. The original cart stays in view at all times and updates accordingly, so you don’t have to search for it. Simple!
Thank you for your support everyone, and we hope you enjoy it!
