Royal Thunder Announce New Album
Given that Royal Thunder’s last thunder of royalty, Crooked Doors, was my favorite album of 2015, you can probably imagine how hard I royally thundered in my pants upon reading this press release:
Royal Thunder’s unique, genre-bending sound has been turning heads since guitarist Josh Weaver founded the band in Atlanta, GA. His songwriting, plus bassist Mlny Parsonz’s soul-searing vocals, have led to worldwide critical acclaim. Now, Royal Thunder have confirmed that their forthcoming album will be titled WICK.
Spinefarm Records will release the album worldwide on April 7.
“WICK is different, a bigger jump as far as our sound goes. But it’s still us — it’s just the sound of Royal Thunder’s evolution,” said Weaver.
“Out of all of the albums, WICK was the hardest one to make. It was a fight, but to hear it now, to see it finished, is so gratifying. Finally, it’s over, it’s amazing to be done with it. I’m looking at it, going, ‘We’re done, it’s over, be free,’” said Parsonz.
WICK will carry the band’s ambition and imprint out into the world. Prepare to be moved.
Christ on a cracker, April 7 cannot come soon enough.
Alas, there’s no music to hear yet, but expect that to change soon. We’ll let you know the moment something is released, natch.
