Released on Friday, April 7th via Emergency Music / Remote Control Records, the reissue of this seminal album marks a significant milestone in the band’s illustrious career.

Recorded and mixed at Birdland Studios over a twelve-day period in the spring of 1997, Young And Full Of The Devil represented a bold departure from Magic Dirt’s brooding and introspective sound found on their previous album, Friends In Danger. With an infusion of raw power, beauty, and assured chaos, the album showcased their signature guitar sounds and guttural, desperate vocals on timeless anthems such as She-Riff, Rabbit With Fangs and Babycakes.

Magic Dirt’s lineup underwent a significant change during this period with the addition of new guitarist Raul Sanchez Jorge. His arrival injected fresh inspiration and became a driving force for the band’s newfound momentum. The success of Young And Full Of The Devil propelled Magic Dirt to greater heights, leading to notable achievements such as a UK/European tour supporting The Heads and the main support act for Silverchair’s national Freak Show tour of Australia.

With their inimitable chemistry, Magic Dirt’s high-energy live shows are the stuff of legend. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch one of Australia’s most revered rock acts doing exactly what they do best.
