ROYAL THUNDER – Wick (April 7, 2017)

Royal Thunder are to return April 7, 2017, with a brand new album. Entitled Wick, it is the band’s first for new label Spinefarm Records.

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 guitarist Josh Weaver.

Bassist and vocalist Mlny Parsonz adds curiously, “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.……'”

1. “Burning Tree”

Royal Thunder are a four-piece rock band based out of Atlanta, Georgia that seamlessly blend the elements of heavy classic rock, 90’s grunge, and forward-thinking progressive rock. Propelled by the powerfully emotional voice of frontwoman Mlny Parsonz, the guitar heroics of Josh Weaver, and the dynamic drums of Evan Diprima, Royal Thunder have been described by NPR as “a revved-up Southern hard-rock that howls like Led Zeppelin astride a psychedelic unicorn” and as “magnificently compelling rock music” by Decibel Magazine. Formed in 2004 by Weaver, his brother, and his best friend, the band went through several lineup changes over the years before settling on their current lineup, which also incorporated second guitarist Will Fiore as of 2015.

Since current drummer Diprima joined in October 2012, the band have been heavily touring the world, including full North American and European Tours with Baroness as well as prominent US tours alongside Monster Magnet, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Pallbearer, Enslaved, Corrosion of Conformity, O’Brother and many more. The group have also played high-profile festivals including SXSW, Bonnaroo, Scion Rock Fest, Bragg Jam, Roadburn, and numerous others.

Though they’ve been around for ten years, Royal Thunder seem to have only just hit their stride – the future stands to be even more uproarious than the band’s exciting early development.
