The Royalists

The Royalists spent a little time at Studio 490 way back in April '17 but the episode was never released... until now! I had a great time talking to the extremely talented young men and look forward to following this band as they make their mark on the music industry. Check out their "official bio" below and give the interview a listen and see why this band is headed for great things.

The Royalists are a 3 piece instrumental band. While their official genre is Prog Rock Hair Swoop, they fit in such categories as math rock, jazz fusion, progressive, and even metal. In 2015 the band released their first EP entitled Flight. After this release the band quickly began writing for a new album, which was released in August of 2017. The three high school juniors have been playing shows since 2014 at venues such as Uncommon Ground, The Rail II, The Red Barn, Peoria Brewing Company, Peoria Pizza Works, Elandorf Music Festival, the Kickapoo Kickback Family Gathering, and The Apollo Theatre. Their style, technical ability, and repertoire is ever growing giving a fresh feeling to every show.
