ROYAL THUNDER, who Stereogum said have created “the contemporary hard-rock equivalent of Fleetwood Mac’s 'Rumors',” are sharing a new series of videos discussing the songs on Crooked Doors in detail, with the first clip viewable now. Check out the commentary:
The clip arrives as the Atlanta-based outfit prepares to join Wilco for a late Southeastern U.S. tour, kicking off April 22 at McFarlin Memorial Auditorium in Dallas. The outing will be followed by the band’s own tour, launching May 28 in New Orleans, which also includes a brief run of shows with Halestorm and Rival Suns.
Crooked Doors was released earlier this month, with NPR saying it is a “a stunning hard-rock record that examines what happens after a breakup of any kind.” Entertainment Weekly said Crooked Doors “leans on its substantial pop chops. Tracks like ‘Glow’ are more Heart than Led Zep, which is not a bad thing at all.” Metal Hammer UK recently nominated the band for “Best Underground Band” in their annual Golden Gods’ Awards.
