An emo-leaning, alternative rock outfit based in Scranton, PA. Established in 2018, the band released their self-produced debut EP, ‘Good Beer,’ the following year. The Maguas set to work with producer Nik Bruzzese (Man Overboard) on their sophomore release in early 2020. ‘One Of Us Is Lying’ dropped later that year, quickly garnering significant traction within the scene and earning them recognition from an array of outlets including Alternative Press.
Once again working with Bruzzese, the band set forth on their third iteration in 2021, which eventually culminated in Evergreen. The EP, which dropped December 17th, garnered over 100k streams in its first month, attracting listeners across emo generations with its novel-but-nostalgic sound and dark, vulnerable lyrical themes.
Ahead of the release, The Maguas embarked on their first U.S. run, touring alongside Dear Youth and Outatime!, and earned features from publications such as chorus.fm, Volatile Weekly, and Bass Musician Magazine. Additional performances saw them sharing the stage with Secondhand Serenade, The Dangerous Summer, SayWeCanFly, The Spill Canvas, Rain City Drive, and Kulick—among other notable alternative artists.
Charging full steam ahead in 2022, The Maguas are now recording for a summer release alongside Bruzzese at The Gradwell House. Their debut full-length album is also in the works and anticipated for 2023.
