Royal Bangs Cut It Up

What's there not to like about Knoxville, Tennessee? I mean come on. Superdrag... AWESOME. The Sun Sphere .... AWESOME. The Wig Sphere.... AWESOME. Now.... Royal Bangs... yup... AWESOME. This five member group blazes out of the 'ville brandishing a unique electro rock sound that sounds too old school to be new wave and too new school to be...um... old school. They've pretty much played everywhere down south including a stint at some festival called Bonnaroo. Now they have an album coming out on May 13th called We Breed Champions on Audio Eagle. I was pretty taken when I first listened to it. The Knoxville Voice compared them to "Radiohead vs. fifteen bottles of Southern Comfort." First of all anybody with 15 bottles of So-Co is not going to sound good, but I see where they're going with that. Second of all, I would say they sounded more like the Rolling Stones gettin' all crazy-like with keyboards when Van Morrison kicks down the wall and goes crazy (like Aerosmith vs. Run-DMC 'Walk This Way' style). This is Royal Bangs. Intelligent, yet rough around the edges, electro rock that knows no boundaries.

Have you noticed ed hardy Clothing that she is spending time with ed hardy sale one person in particular ed hardy and they seemed to come from ed hardy UK nowhere. When you ask how she ed hardy cheap knows them she becomes aloof and ed hardy Clothes disinterested. Is there someone's house ed hardy store she seems to be always going to? This edhardy.com could spell something is wrong with the christian audigier sale relationship. Is she taking trips, possibly day ed hardy dresses trips or small vacations without you? If ed hardy Polos she was doing this before you even ed hardy sandals got married or dated, then it may be okay, but if it is a recent ed hardy Jackets development then you may have problems.
