People have dubbed them "motown inspired garage" or even "rock n soul," but fear not - this isn t your blatant 60 s revivalism or festival friendly gimmick rock. Royal Headache are a punk band! A very good punk band, with an actual singer and the ability to write timeless pop songs. In an era where we re bombarded by one dimensional summertime pop, ironic or "clever" made up electrocross-genres and disenfranchised too-hip-for-the-audience wayfarer rock, a band that communicates real human emotion like Royal Headache do is essential. A full length LP, recorded by Mikey Young of Eddy Current Suppression Ring.
"Like very few bands before them (Exploding Hearts and The Marked Men come to mind), Royal Headache effortlessly breathes life back into the desiccated husk of pop-punk." --Doug Mosurock - Dusted
"For once, I m at a loss for words, so forgive any lapse in eloquence that may occur, but I m truly speechless. Royal Headache was the best band I saw last year and one of the best bands I ve ever seen in my short, hideous life. " --Brace Belden - Maximum Rock N Roll
"lo-fi bedroom production that recalls the fuzz and stomp of the Buzzcocks" --Pitchfork
