Palaye Royale has just returned to the US, after two weeks in Europe where they hit the major festival circuit with performances at festivals on the Isle of Wight, Austria’s Nova Rock, Pinkpop in the Netherlands as well as an electrifying debut at Download Festival. Plus special, intimate charity show at Borderline in London in aid of Nordoff Robbins, in association with the Heavy Music Awards. Nordoff Robbins is an independent UK music therapy charity, dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people through the power of music.
With all that, we were surprised and excited to hear that Palaye Royale was releasing new music. The infamous rockers have taken Fucking With My Head, a staple part of their recent live set this year, till now unreleased.
The release marks the beginning of the transition into the next era of Palaye Royale. The video contains several hidden symbols taken from a chapter of the Neo-utopian. This being the graphic novel that Payale Royale drummer and artist, Emerson Barrett has written and designed along with artist XOBillie to accompany this next chapter.
Speaking on the graphic novel and the dawning of the new era, Emerson Barrett explained “Ever since our first EP, The End’s Beginning we have been hinting and hiding words and symbols in everything we have created. Boom Boom Room Side A and Side B was a continuation of this existential treasure hunt. Now as we enter the new era, it all begins to unfold.”
Do not expect Palaye Royale to be taking a rest anytime soon. A second video next week for another brand new track, Nervous Breakdown that will take fans even deeper down the rabbit hole of the utopian world being created by the band. Plus the trio will be heading back to the UK to play at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festival, held over the August Bank Holiday weekend between Friday 23 and Sunday 25 August 2019.
