Royal Tusk - Aftermath

Canadian rockers Royal Tusk released their sophomore album Tusk II last October 26.

Tusk II was recorded in Toronto with producer Eric Ratz (Big Wreck, Billy Talent, Arkells) and is the first released on Entertainment One (eOne), with which the band signed a worldwide deal.

Tusk II includes the leading single Aftermath, a strong, hard hitting song that "was inspired by the idea that our culture (especially youth culture) is being desensitized to violence through an overload of media and information" in the words of vocalist Daniel Carriere. "While wrestling with ideas of isolation, violence, tragedy, and authoritarianism, Aftermath asks what we may see looking back when this ever-volatile present has become a distant memory."

Tusk II is a powerful collection of songs driven by loud guitars, a touch heavier than Royal Tusk's debut, highly enjoyable nonetheless.
