On March 26, 2021, Sweden’s Grand Royale will release their fifth studio full-length, Carry On, via The Sign Records…
Carry On contains eleven 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-fuelled electric guitars, crushing bass tones and thundering drums inspired by nineties rock. Carry On was 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.
Carry On will be released on CD, vinyl and digital formats.
