BRASS OUT NOW ON MODERN ART RECORDS, PRODUCED BY THE BLACK KEYS’ PATRICK CARNEY
The Knoxville, Tennessee quartet Royal Bangs is set to embark on a nationwide headline tour accompanied by fellow indie band Bad Suns. The upcoming tour is in support of their celebrated new LP Brass and follows a successful fall run in support of Crocodiles and Geographer.
Produced by The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, Brass is the group’s fourth full-length release and was recorded at Haptown Studios in Nashville during May 2012. Of working with the band, Carney comments, “I was really excited to get to produce a Royal Bangs album. I discovered them about six years ago and became so obsessed that I released their first two albums on my label, Audio Eagle, but this is the first chance I’ve had to actually help them make an album. They are one of those bands that just keep getting better and better and I couldn’t be more proud to have been involved with this album and band.”
Patrick Carney is a drummer and this band has an incredible drummer. Check out the drums live on Letterman.
Royal Bangs is Ryan Schaefer (singer, multi-instrumentalist), Chris Rusk (drums), Sam Stratton (guitar), and Dylan Dawkins (bass).
