Royal Teeth - Hard Luck

American indie pop rockers Royal Teeth released their sophomore album Hard Luck at the end of last month, via Round Hill Records. The record marks the band's long overdue comeback to indie rock, with a progression in their sound that exudes energy and conviction.

No stranger to the ups and downs of the music industry, they're signed to their third label in just over six years. "There were days where I just accepted that this was probably going to be over soon," vocalist Gary Larsen recalls. "Something finally switched inside of me. I decided that if we are going down, then we are going down swinging."

Feeling inspired to create new songs with a new fresh sound, the quartet whole-heartedly decided it was worth a return to the music scene.

Never Gonna Quit, the first single, serves as a mission statement for the album, boasting loudly the ability to take a shot to the chin and continue pushing forward. Thrashing, punk-inspired The Best takes on a tongue-in-cheek response to the cutthroat nature of the industry, and Rivalry shows a deep seeded desire for both self-discovery and acceptance, stating "I just want to feel like I belong to myself, to anyone."

"It is easy for me to lose confidence in myself," Gary states. "This line of work can be difficult. It requires you to be vulnerable and put yourself out there to be judged by others. It's hard to get used to. We are using this album as a platform to face our fears, and to focus on the love we find through the music we create and those who connect along the way. I hope that this album gives strength to anyone who has a hard time putting themselves out there for the world to see."
