Palaye Royale - Death Dance

Toronto-based art-rock trio Palaye Royale released their highly anticipated new album Boom Boom Room (Side B) last September 28 via Sumerian Records.

According to the band, the recording process for their sophomore album started in January 2018. However, the entire album got scrapped and was reconstituted over the course of five months, completed a week before the band left for the final Warped Tour.
The record is the follow up to Boom Boom Room (Side A) from 2 years ago and completes the two part album Boom Boom Room

Boom Boom Room (Side B) debuted on the Billboard charts with 8,000 equivalent album units, reaching position number 12 on Top Rock Albums and 89 on the Billboard 200 charts.

If you still don't know this band, then take the music of The Libertines and early day Artic Monkeys, blend it with the music of My Chemical Romance, add the swagger of the British Invasion, the flamboyance of glam rock and the reckless abandon of punk: the result you'd get would be Palaye Royale.

Palaye Royale are quite the phenomenon. Uniquely encompassing the worlds of music, art, fashion and philosophy and equally at home in the hallways of Los Angeles Fashion Week as they are climbing the lighting tresses at the Vans Warped Tour, they have been dubbed "The Hottest Band of 2018" and simply "the" group of the year by the music press. Having graced the covers of magazines on both sides of the pond this year, singer Remington Leith, guitarist Sebastian Danzig and drummer Emerson Barrett are right on the brink of crossing the divide between success and superstardom.

Rock 'n' Roll for a new generation? I don't know, but there's some roast under the smoke.

Palaye Royale - Mr. Doctor Man

This is a great new find for me: I'm talking of Los Angeles rock band Palaye Royale, which released their Sumerian Records debut Boom Boom Room (Side A) last friday, June 24.

Palaye Royale have roots in Toronto, ON, and were formed in 2008 by brothers Remington Leith (frontman), Sebastian Danzig (guitarist/organist) and Emerson Barrett (drums).

Boom Boom Room (Side A) was produced by James Iha (The Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfet Circle) and features the leading single Mr. Doctor Man (check the official video cliking on the image) and the previous one, also opener of the album, Don't Feel Quite Right.

Boom Boom Room's a great record of rock'n'roll mixing the best the genre had to offer in the 70's, the 80's and the early 90's: think of the bastard child of the American act Junkyard and the British outfit Quireboys. BBR's chock-full of amazing, entertaining and moving songs. Stream the whole album on Spotify and judge by yourselves.

You can check Palaye Royale live (their real dimension!) on their summer-long stint on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour, that started a few days ago and will run through August 13.
