Swedish rockers Grande Royale are back with a brand new album. On March 26, 2021, the band will release their 5th studio full-length Carry On via The Sign Records.
Carry On contains 11 tracks of high energy rock n roll. It reflects a raw, back to basics approach for the album, keeping production simple while focusing on strong and catchy material: Orange-fueled electric guitars, crushing bass tones and thundering drums inspired by 90’s rock. Carry On was as all Grande Royal albums produced by the band members themselves and mixed by Robert Pehrsson (Robert Pehrsson Humbucker). Vocalist Gustav Wremer sings with more grit than on previous albums, adding a ton of attitude to these new songs. Altogether, Carry On offers a rollicking take on garage rock.
Wremer says, «On our previous record Take it Easy, we experimented a lot with different instruments and sounds to challenge ourselves — to make something that, to us, is a bit unusual and that stands out from our other albums. On Carry On, we’re focusing on what we’re best at: dirty garage rock n roll. We’ve basically recorded and produced the entire record ourselves. I think it ended up great. No fuzz, no muss, just rock!».
Grande Royale has a history of working together with prominent names of the Swedish rock scene. They have previously teamed up with Nicke Andersson (The Hellacopters, Imperial State Electric) and Ola Ersfjord (Dead Lord, Honeymoon Disease, Lucifer). This album’s special guest is Dregen (Hellacopters, Backyard Babies) who ads vocals to the song Just As Bad As You.
Grande Royale is a rock’n’roll band from Jönköping, Sweden, who find their roots in the early 70’s rock scene of Detroit and the 90’s rock scene in Scandinavia, mixed up with some vintage pop. The music is straight forward rock’n’roll packed with electric guitars, melodic vocals and thundering bass lines. Grande Royal is inspired of old bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Grand Funk but doesn`t sound unlike Imperial State Electric and Hellacopters. Grand Royal offers nice playing, pretty strong melodies and plenty of room to let the song breathe.
During the bands first year, Grande Royale recorded and released their debut album titled Cygne Noir (2014) and the second album was released in 2015 with the title No Fuss – A piece by resolute men. At each album Grande Royal had been doing all of the recordings by themselves, and also released the albums on their own.
