The four-man rock band discuss how the group have progressed their sound on the groove-laden third record.
Royal Republic have released three singles previewing the latest record. Fireman & Dancer is a guitar riff sensenation that would make ‘Dr. Feelgood himself sweat bullets’, while Boomerang is a retro-inspired groovy classic and Anna-Leigh will push you back to the time of shoulder pads and leg warmers.
The red hot Swedes have a string of UK live dates planned for 2019 – kicking off with Download Festival on June 15th this summer, followed by an eleven date headline tour in October.
Royal Republic don’t believe in guilty pleasures – only pleasures, free of compromise. Since meeting at the Malmö Academy Of Music in 2007, they’ve 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.
