Charismatic Swedish rockers Royal Republic have signed with Nuclear Blast and should release a new album in 2019.
Talking about the news, the band’s frontman Adam Grahn commented that he couldn’t be happier with the record deal which will be the group’s third.
“We’re stoked to officially have Nuclear Blast be part of the Royal Republic family! After three divorces, we’re sure we found the right one this time! It’s with tremendous excitement we look into the future, together. Hopefully. Just kidding. Seriously stoked!”
Royal Republic are one of the most engaging live acts in rock music and are taking their talents to the UK this Autumn. Aside from a performance at Download Festival, the band will be hitting the road in October.
The band met at the Malmö Academy Of Music in 2007 and from these posh roots has sprung something wonderful. Naturally, Nuclear Blast are delighted to have them on board.
“We are absolutely excited to be releasing the band’s new album after their hugely popular record Weekend Man,” said label rep Marcus Hammer.
According to the press release, this band “have become Sweden’s most addictive rock’n’roll export; mixing riffy guitars, king-sized tunes and jet-packed beats with their own eclectic tastes and inimitable joie de vivre. Plus the kind of snazzy suits most of their contemporaries wish they had the balls to pull off.
“They encapsulate the raw spirit of punk with the hips of James Brown and swaggering braggadocio of James Bond. No wonder they struggle to label themselves! They’ll rock the shit out of you and make you dance like you’ve just won the lottery.”
And you’ve got to admit, this release is probably right.
