Notorious indy-art rockers, Palaye Royale have released the video for their brand new track ‘Fucking With My Head’. The track has become a firm favorite with fans through being a staple part of the Palaye Royale live set for most of this year.
The release of ‘Fucking With My Head’ marks the beginning of the transition into the next era of Palaye Royale. The video contains several hidden symbols taken from a chapter of the Neoutopian Graphic Novel that drummer and artist, Emerson Barrett has written and designed along with artist XOBillie to accompany this next chapter.
The band will be releasing a second video next week for another brand new track, ‘Nervous Breakdown’ that will take fans even deeper down the rabbit hole of the utopian world being created by the band to share with their ever-growing, rabid fanbase The Soldiers of The Royal Council. Speaking on the graphic novel and the dawning of the new era, Emerson Barrett said:
“Ever since our first EP, ‘The End’s Beginning’ we have been hinting and hiding words and symbols in everything we have created. Boom Boom Room Side A and Side B was a continuation of this existential treasure hunt. Now as we enter the new era, it all begins to unfold.”
Palaye Royale have just returned to the US from two weeks in Europe where they hit the major festival circuit with performances at legendary festivals such as Download, Isle of Wight, Austria’s Nova Rock and Pinkpop in the Netherlands. They also played a special, intimate charity show the infamous Borderline in London in aid of Nordoff Robbins, the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people through the power of music. All proceeds from the show went to the charity.
As well as joining the Twins of Evil ‘Hell Never Dies’ Tour, Palaye Royale will also be joining Marilyn Manson on two headline shows at Big Sky Brewing Company Missoula, MT on July 30th and The Knitting Factory Concert House, Boise, ID on July 31st.
The band’s latest album, ‘Boom Boom Room Side B’ was released in September 2018 via Sumerian records and saw an impressive first week on the Billboard charts, debuting at #17 on the Top Albums Chart, #3 Top Alternative and #6 Top Rock. The lead single from the album, ‘You’ll Be Fine’ hit #23 at rock radio and to date has had 6.5 million streams on Spotify.
The band have clocked up over 40 million total streams on Spotify, over 43 million views on YouTube and have a combined social media following of 1 million and their rapid upwards trajectory shows no signs of slowing down thanks to their infamous and rabidly devoted, Soldiers of The Royal Council.
