Royal Tusk - DealBreaker

A year and half ago I presented to my readers Mountain, the awesome debut ep for Royal Tusk, a Canadian rock band featuring former Ten Second Epic members Daniel Carriere (vocals/guitars) and Sandy MacKinnon (bass). Mountain was one of the best EP of 2014, so I was really anticipating the release of the full-length debut.

The Canuck rockers finally released it last friday: it's titled DealBreaker and is out on MapleMusic Recordings. The album embraces a dynamic evolution in the band's sound, as the press-release reports, and is a loud and guitar-driven affair with hints of Americana and soul.

DealBreaker was produced by JUNO Awards Winner Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Big Wreck, Monster Truck, Danko Jones) and features 11 new tracks that you can stream now on Spotify clicking on the image.

Royal Tusk - Shadow Of Love

Let's go back to June 10, release date of "Mountain", the debut ep for Royal Tusk, a Canadian rock band featuring former Ten Second Epic members Daniel Carriere (vocals/guitars) and Sandy MacKinnon (bass).

"Mountain", released via Hidden Pony Records and produced by Gus Van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Said The Whale, The Trews), features 6 tracks, including the single and opener of the mini-album "Shadow Of Love" (click on the image to watch the video).

Do yourself a favour and stream the whole ep on SoundCloud, as it's a perfect example of how to make great catchy, energetic and smart poprock music with hints of Americana, funk and soul.

Royal Tusk's "Mountain" is simply one of the best EP of the year so far.
