Dutch based metalcore band The Royal are very happy and proud to announce that they have signed to Long Branch Records!
During our conversations and meetings with Long Branch Records we noticed that musical and artistic freedom truely is their number one priority. They really understand what we do and they can and will support us in our career in a way we feel is right for us.
It goes without saying that this wouldn’t be possible without each and every one of you. So we want to thank you for enjoying heavy music with us and we can not wait to see you throughout this next era.
Our new record will be released early in 2017.
Their latest album“Dreamcatchers” has been released on July 31, 2014. The album contains 13 tracks, mixed and engineered by the American producer Cory Brunnemann. The songs cover riffs that stick, brutal vocals combined with raw backing tones, recognizable oriental spheres combined with exquisite melancholic parts and big tempo switches. Given their ability to draw the listener in with brutally honest lyrics supported by technical but easy listening instrumentals, The Royal shows solidarity for their future as a band to be taken very seriously.
But that’s not all, The Royal worked together with big artist like Shawn Spann ( I The Breather ) and Ryan Kirby ( Fit For A King ) who both have a featured part on this album. For the artwork of “Dreamcatchers”, they collaborated with none other than illustrator and designer Dan Mumford who also created artwork for bands like; Parkway Drive, A Day To Remember and Miss May I.
