Royal Thunder‘s critically praised Spinefarm Records debut WICK is out now. To celebrate the release of the watershed album, the band has premiered the video for “Sinking Chair” at NPR.
Watch it here.
Below is a sampling of what the press has said about WICK:
“Royal Thunder could be the much-needed antidote to the blustery machismo that dominates active-rock radio.” — Rolling Stone
“This is a tremendous work of art from a band deservingly catapulting to elite status.” — Blabbermouth
“It’s rare to come across a band that can do so much so well.” —Revolver
“Their most emotionally-stirring and finest achievement to date.” — Loudwire
“Mlny Parsonz continues to have one of the most insanely soulful and powerful voices in all of modern rock, and the music is so smoky that listening to it will make you feel a tickle in the back of your throat like you gotta cough.” — Metal Sucks
“WICK is their least metallic effort to date—and arguably their best. It sounds as though the Atlanta four-piece has finally found their sound, after years of being pushed and prodded towards what other people thought they should be, and the end result is sublime.” —Noisey
