Royal Bangs

Another quick musical break here on the art blog:

ROYAL BANGS are a band from the musically ripe town of Knoxville, TN - they have a great eclectic, video-game/indie-rock/metal/garage/dance sound that is rare, and wonderful.

They are currently touring and are great, live. Their third album FLUX OUTSIDE will be available March 29 and is promising to be great, based on the first track released, Grass Helmet:

They are playing at SXSW in Austin, TX next week, and unfortunately I will have left Austin before they play (damn that work scheduling!) -- but you should NOT miss them! And if you live outside of Austin or cannot make the festival, they are playing LOTS OF SHOWS this year, so see their tour schedule and more over at their MySpace page.

...and no, they did not pay me to say any of this. They just rock.
