Royal Teeth formed in 2012, with the release of their debut EP Act Naturally, followed by their first LP, Glow, and 2016 EP Amateurs. Numerous high profile gigs followed, including Austin City Limits, JazzFest, Bonnaroo, and Firefly. Fast Forward to 2019, the band are poised to release their new full-length. Ahead of it’s arrival, Royal Teeth are sharing the single “Get A Load Of This One,” The song is a perfect summertime banger, and should be on everyone’s mixtape.
Royal Teeth’s forthcoming release, is described as the band’s long overdue comeback to indie rock, No stranger to the ups and downs of the music industry, they’re signed to their third label in just over six years. “There were days where I just accepted that this was probably going to be over soon,” vocalist Gary Larsen recalls. “Something finally switched inside of me. I decided that if we are going down, then we are going down swinging.” Feeling inspired to create new songs with a new fresh sound, the quartet whole-heartedly decided it was worth a return to the music scene.
2017, saw the group began recording from their homes in New Orleans and Nashville, and the result was the new record. Unlike their previous releases, the new album is rough around the edges. “We didn’t want to reference anything we had done before. We needed to move on and figure out what we are today,” Gary continues.
“Never Gonna Quit,” the first single, serves as a mission statement for the album, boasting loudly the ability to take a shot to the chin and continue pushing forward. Thrashing, punk-inspired “The Best” (a track of their forthcoming release), takes on a tongue-in-cheek response to the cutthroat nature of the industry, and “Rivalry” shows a deep seeded desire for both self-discovery and acceptance, stating “I just want to feel like I belong to myself, to anyone.”
“It is easy for me to lose confidence in myself,” Gary states. “This line of work can be difficult. It requires you to be vulnerable and put yourself out there to be judged by others. It’s hard to get used to. We are using this album as a platform to face our fears, and to focus on the love we find through the music we create and those who connect along the way. I hope that this album gives strength to anyone who has a hard time putting themselves out there for the world to see.”
