Grande Royale’s upcoming album “Carry On” contains 11 tracks of high energy rock n roll. The Band has applied a rawer and more 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. Vocalist Gustav Wremer sings with more grit than on previous albums, adding a ton of attitude to the new songs. All put together, “Carry On” offers an energetic and straight forward take on garage rock. Produced by the band members themselves, and mixed by Robert Pehrsson (Robert Pehrsson Humbucker).
|“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!”|
