U.S. Royalty Announces Tour + MP3

U.S. Royalty released their debut album, MIRRORS, yesterday. Check it out, it's on my list of recommended listens. Also yesterday, they announced they would be embarking on a tour. They'll be out on the road with Broken Records. That means good news for New York. We'll have two opportunities to catch the band. They will be on the LES at Mercury Lounge on February 22 and the following night, February 23, they'll be in Brooklyn at The Rock Shop.

In addition to a list of tour dates, we have for your listening pleasure, another MP3. Hop down to the bottom of the post for "Monte Carlo" in the MP3 Grab.

"With this record we wanted to present a body of work, a complete thought," says singer John Thornley. To achieve this, the band wrote and rewrote songs for a year, demoing and dissecting while on the road and at home. John continues, "Because we traveled for about a year and a half before we recorded the album, there is definitely a travel vibe to the record."
