Roaring out of Philadelphia is The Royal Noise, one of the Northeast’s hottest up and coming bands riding high on a wave of high energy, grooving funk that’s sweeping across the country. While ferociously touring the East Coast, the band continues to perform relentlessly in support of the recent release of their third album on May 13th 2014 – their most adventurous and captivating studio effort to date, aptly entitled “This Is The Funky Part”.
Combining elements of funk, jam, jazz, rock and dance, The Royal Noise ebbs and flows throughout each song, working from a foundation arrangement, then allowing each of their four members to steer the music with their own unique contributions. Chock full of spellbinding jam sessions, infectious saxophone lines, searing guitar solos, spacey synths and undeniable grooves, This Is The Funky Part takes the listener on an amusement park ride of an album that keeps them guessing at each and every turn, drawing comparisons to bands in the vein of Herbie Hancock, Lettuce, Umphrey’s McGee and Lotus.
For their third record, the band teamed up with acclaimed producer and engineer Pete Mavrogeorgis, who has had an integral part in producing the works of such artists as Grinderman, The National, Alice Texas, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Phillip Glass, The Horrors and many more.
The quartet’s tireless schedule and growing list of performances and festival dates up and down the East Coast, which the band have labeled “This Is The Funky Tour”, sees them cruising between Vermont and South Florida to promote This Is The Funky Part. Night in and night out, this Pennsylvanian quartet demonstrates their ability to blend the lines between composition and improvisation in front of avid audiences.
This Is The Funky Part is available worldwide in digital retail stores. Check out streaming audio on The Royal Noise’s official website, connect with them on Facebook or Twitter for all the latest info and keep your eyes peeled for announcements for their upcoming East Coast tour dates.
