Mag Electric “Thorn In My Side”

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK – MAG ELECTRIC release their new single/video “THORN IN MY SIDE”. Mag Electric plays music that can best be described as hard rock with a healthy dose of psychedelic influence. “Thorn In My Side” garners all of those motions put into place by a distinct bass and drum drive. The vocals were undeniably written and sung to fit the jam. This is a complete work formed with overtures of classic and psych rock. With their second release, it is time to give Mag Electric their due. “Thorn In My Side” is set to bring the rock loud and proud!

‘”Thorn in my Side” is Mag Electric’s hard rock expression of life’s annoyances and problems. Brought about by daily struggles most everyone experiences in all walks of life, the song expresses a response to the thorn in your side in your own life. All wrapped up in a psychedelic hard rock package, “Thorn” figures to be song rock fans can relate to as we go through life picking thorns out of our own sides.”‘ – William Peluso

“Thorn In My Side” is the second single from NYC 3-piece Mag Electric. Building off the hard rock foundation the band laid with their debut “Iron Horse”, “Thorn In My Side” sees the band explore more of their musical roots. The psychedelic influences of guitarist Jack Simchak are on full display, from beginning to end. In addition, the unique arrangement necessitated by the song’s intro section showcases the band’s appreciation of non-traditional song structures. Make sure to check out “Thorn In My Side”, a song that could be an instant classic among fans of the genre.

Mag Electric is a 3 piece hard rock band from Brooklyn. The band consists of Jack Simchak (guitar and vocals), Scott Meyer (bass), and Bill Peluso (drums). The three came together out of a shared love of old-school hard rock bands like QOTSA, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, and ZZ Top, as well as master musicians like Jeff Porcaro. Mag plays music that can best be described as hard rock with a healthy dose of psychedelic influence. 

Through each song written and performed the band strives to stay true to what they love about their musical roots while maintaining relevance to what they as individuals want to express. On the heels of their first release Roadie music mag said this about their debut single “Iron Horse”, “What Jack Simchak (guitar and vocals), Scott Meyer (bass) and Bill Peluso (drums) did on Iron Horse, can be considered an immediate classic, such is the strength of its hard rock with seventies influences, but which borders on the lines of stoner rock, at certain times, showing enormous versatility in their heavy and adrenaline-filled sound, with an intense footprint and a lot of originality on the surface at all times.”

The band is currently gigging around NYC in support of their upcoming sophomore single “Thorn In My Side” coming out in the winter of 2023. Looking ahead you can find the band on the road touring the northeast this spring with more releases coming throughout the rest of 2023 so make sure to follow and stay tuned.

*Mag Electric will be going out on tour in late April-early May throughout the northeast going down as south as Virginia and as far north as Maine hitting many places in between. More information will be available on all band social media accounts as the dates get closer.
