Grande Royale is back with their third album ”Breaking News” set for release the 25th of August on The Sign Records. Ten track of High Energy rock that have been recorded and produced by Nicke Andersson (The Hellacopters, Imperial State Electric) at his studio the Honk Palace. Packed with powerful riffs that works as gasoline for the songs, the album ignites as screaming guitar solos takes it all the way to eleven. Each song is hold together by a sing a long friendly pop hooks and an overload of melodies.
“During our time with Nicke he always told us that every song needs a ‘hook’. Something that you will remember after hearing the song just once, and I really think we managed to find that hook while writing this songs. It stick, even if you like ’em or not”
– Hampus Steenberg, Grande Royale
Grande Royale have after two self released albums signed a deal with The Sign Records. With a label and producer Nicke Andersson by their side the band have taken several steps, both as songwriters and by creating a new sound. Arriving in the studio Grande Royale noticed that Nicke Andersson was going through an Lynyrd Skynyrd obsessive period, an interest and obsession that the band shared. The entire recording period was heavily influenced by Lynyrd Skynyrd and updated the bands sound to lean more towards a timeless southern rock sound. The Swedish bands heritage shines though as the band picks up most of the ingrediences that we love with Swedish music as well of the classic rock acts. Grande Royales new album ”Breaking News” is all about radio friendly feelgood rock n roll anthems. If you have any love lost for The Hellacopters this might very well be your next fix.
