I don’t know why, but this album is always going to be entitled the John Wick album in my head.
Royal Thunder is a hard rocking band from Georgia. These guys were the darling of my friends and I’s SXSW fest a few years ago. I think we probably saw them play 3 or 4 different times that fest.
This is their third album out and they just keep consistently putting out really solid rock tunes that have a ton of soul. Lead singer Mlny Parsonz is simply one of the most powerful vocalist going in the entire music industry today. Seriously. She is a tiny little thing, but she just owns the songs in which she sings. The latest record is a definite showcase for her talent along with the understated guitar work of Josh Weaver. I have a feeling that this album is going to be one that grows upon each listen. There is a lot of really good stuff packed on here that will be well worth revisiting.
They hit Austin on April 27 at The Barracuda. I highly suggest you get your butts over there to check them out.
