Indie rock band THE ROYALTY is hitting the Southwest region for a select set of tour dates beginning February 8th in their home town of El Paso, Texas. They will perform songs from their most recent album Lovers (3/08/12) and woo audiences with infectious melodies that will leave their feet tapping. See a full list of tour dates here and stay on the lookout for more dates to be announced in the future.
THE ROYALTY’s debut Victory Records release Lovers was praised as “one of the most unexpected and enjoyable rock records of the year,” according to the NEW YORK TIMES. They’ve captured the best elements of indie, rock, soul and pop and created something much more interesting. Female front woman Nicole Boudreau’s classically quixotic voice mixed with swaying baselines and relatable lyrics come to life through their recent music videos for songs “How I Like ‘Em” and “I Want You”.
THE ROYALTY’s videos provide evidence of their ability to cloud the musical boundaries. “Bartender” is another must see video, for its sexy funk/soul aesthetic will have fans of FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS and BEST COAST screaming “Baby!” Order Lovers on vinyl through the Victory Records’ webstore and check out other available merch.
THE ROYALTY has been featured on such shows as Underemployed (MTV), Startups: Silicon Valley (Bravo), The Real L Word (Showtime), Couples Therapy (VH1) and Jersey Shore (MTV); their sweet harmonies served as backdrops to some of the most watched series on television today, legitimizing what was once just a small Texan start up band. Tune in to tonight’s episode of Catfish (MTV) and hear “Won’t Be Long” from their recent album Lovers.
