White Knight Records

The Mighty Ra is delighted to announce that our debut album "All Secrets Known" will be released on White Knight Records.

I've (Andy) known Rob (Reed) for years having worked together on various prog-rock albums, including Ezra, Cyan and Fyreworks, so White Knight was the obvious choice for releasing the album and it's great to join some quality acts already on the label.

To promote the album we have been filming for the track "Nothing Comes Too Easy" with Rob as the "prog Spielberg" so we're looking forward to seeing the finished cut. Exciting times.
