GRANDE ROYALE Release New LP ‘Welcome to Grime Town’
Welcome To Grime Town is the sixth studio album from the Scandinavian garage rock outfit GRANDE ROYALE. Showcasing the band’s range from a more laid back, melodic and acoustic side to catchy and energetic hard rock. The new record will be released on March 24th, 2023, via The Sign Records.
Welcome To Grime Town delivers twelve powerful tracks all encompassing GRANDE ROYALE’s compelling style. Raucous riffs, electric guitars and dynamic percussion manifest into a fiery explosion. From “Tell Me” to “The End”, GRANDE ROYALE present an thrilling journey of high-octant tracks and more intimate melodic moments. “Tell Me” makes for a energetic opening setting the tone for the album. “Utopia” unveils a softer side with an acoustic composition gradually building before erupting into full-throttle distortion. Taking another turn, “Stark Raving Mad” brings a taste of punk with a gritty edge. With inspiration for the track drawn from a Monty Python-ish universe, “Stark Raving Mad” is a catchy hit.
