Today, January 25, DC-based U.S. Royalty releases the anticipated debut album, MIRRORS. Having already garnered praise surrounding the singles “Equestrian” and “Monte Carlo,” the band is very excited to share this LP with the world.
“With this record we wanted to present a body of work, a complete thought,” says singer John Thornley. To achieve this, the band wrote and rewrote songs for a year, demoing and dissecting while on the road and at home. John continues, “Because we traveled for about a year and a half before we recorded the album, there is definitely a travel vibe to the record.”
From the bluesy swagger of the album opener “Hollywood Hollows” to the soaring, Washington Irving inspired anthem “Equestrian,” it is evident that MIRRORS is an album of grand scope and range. It is a document of exploration and discovery. Songs kindle a spectrum of locales as the band laces a thread of longing and movement throughout the entire album to create a cinematic experience.
U.S. Royalty is also proud to announce a string of coast-to-coast tour dates with 4AD’s Broken Records. Catch U.S. Royalty as they come to your city and hear songs from MIRRORS live!
