Roadrunner Records are proud to welcome Royal Republic to the fold. The band’s debut single, ‘Tommy Gun’ is set for a 14th February release, with their first UK dates to follow in March. The single is taken from the band’s first full-length album, ‘We Are The Royal’, which will hit UK shelves on 14th March.
Formed in Malmö, Sweden at the end of 2007, Royal Republic are loaded with a punk sensibility and a funk-influenced repertoire, chock-full of explosive energy. Frontman Adam tells us, “Our musical backgrounds are extremely diverse. It all probably starts with The Hives or Danko Jones, then stretches out to a little Metallica, on up to Bob Dylan, Norah Jones and even film music or classical.”
Like Electric Six before them, the band’s sense of irony and humour is reflected in their lyrics (check out album tracks ‘Underwear’ and ‘Good To Be Bad’), coupled with the fact that their catchy, sticky tunes attach themselves to your brain and refuse to let go.
Our four intrepid Swedes (Adam Grahn – vocals, Hannes Irengård – guitar, Jonas Almén – bass and Per Andreasson – drums) are excited to get cracking over here, commenting; “This is it! In 2011, Royal Republic will invade the United Kingdom!! We do so with great confidence and a huge amount of respect for the country that has been the home to some of the greatest bands and artists throughout the history of rock n’ roll. It’s gonna be epic! Thanks for having us!” Their high-octane live show has been seducing the masses across in mainland Europe and now it the UK’s turn to experience ‘The Royal’.
