The Skinny: It’s certainly an exciting time for the band Royal Thunder. The Atlanta, Georgia based quartet sound like what you might expect from a group out of the deep south of the United States. They’ve been described as revved-up southern rock that howls like Led Zeppelin with some psychedelia thrown in for good measure. They’ve also been described as a haunting rock band that attracts listeners with their dark rhythms and soulful vocals. Royal Thunder got its start in 2007 and after playing a lot in Atlanta as well as the rest of the south, they self-recorded and released a seven song EP in late 2009.

Now, after years of hard work, the band has finally composed its debut full-length record titled CVI set for release on May 22 on the major label Relapse Records. To help promote the brand new record, Royal Thunder will be playing June 27th in Denver and July 12 in Colorado Springs with additional dates to be announced soon. To give you a free sample of the upcoming new album CVI, we present to you the track “Whispering World” available for free download!
