Energetic, hard hitting and hooks for days, Royal Castles are making nostalgic but contemporary garage-rock. Hailing from the Royal City of Guelph, Ontario and featuring the power trio of Katrin Sawatzky, Jordan Gabriel and AJ Johnson (Juno-nominated Cuff the Duke), the three-piece take influence from the bands of their formative years, delivering pounding drums, crunchy guitars and a healthy dose of wooly bass.
Recently, the trio has spent time at North of Princess (Kingston, Ontario) honing their sound and recording their much-anticipated sophomore album with producer Zane Whitfield (The Glorious Sons, The Bluestones) The full-length album is filled with ear candy: killer drum fills, psychedelic-bubblegum harmonies and crunchy guitar tones that will be sure to make this album feel like sunshine all year-round.
