Hotly-tipped, emerging outfit The Royston Club have shared the huge new single ‘The Deep End’, listen here.
Hailing from Wrexham, North Wales (arguably the most talked about town in the country right now) the four piece have fast become one of the country’s most hotly-tipped new acts – selling out UK headline tours and dominating huge festival stages, and now the band will solidify this status with their debut full length record.
‘The Deep End’ is the final single to be taken from the band’s highly anticipated debut album ‘Shaking Hips and Crashing Cars’, landing 2nd June via Run on Records, and is a fierce statement of what’s to come. Opening the album, ‘The Deep End’ sets the tone as a bombastic backbeat builds amongst rip-roaring guitars before exploding into one of the year’s biggest choruses. The single was premiered as a world exclusive with Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music last night.
Speaking about the mammoth milestone in their career, The Royston Club explain their forthcoming debut album as “A raw, frenetic crowd of songs, through which you can hear the drunken nights spent screaming our favourite songs at the top of our lungs and the consequent hangovers, each bouncing gig and its dormant green room, the freedom of touring along with the panicked inner nag to get a real job. The brotherly love we have for one another and the burning appetite to make music that we cherish and enjoy.”
Alongside the single, the band have announced their biggest UK headline tour to date, featuring a massive show at New Century Hall in Manchester. The shows come in the wake of what promises to be a huge summer, with festival performances at Reading & Leeds alongside forthcoming support slots with The Wombats, Two Door Cinema Club and Blossoms.
After a remarkable 2022 that saw them dominate festivals across the country, this year is undoubtedly theirs for the taking – a sentiment echoed by previous singles ‘Shallow Tragedy’ and ‘Blisters’, released earlier this year via Run On Records (The Coral, Rianne Downey, The Dream Machine).
A storming statement of intent, ‘Shaking Hips and Crashing Cars’ is brimming with instant hits that sit in a glorious middle ground between contemporary legends like Arctic Monkeys and Blossoms and modern guitar powerhouses like Inhaler, yet still positions The Royston Club purely in their own lane. And with the likes of BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio X and many more already jumping on board to support the quartet, the future looks very bright for The Royston Club indeed.
