The Royal They is a New York-based punk rock band set to release their debut, self-titled cassette (!) later this month. Over the last year, they’ve released the tracks “Sex in a Public Place,” “Full Metal Black,” “Laurels” and “Lyric Machine,” as well as “Kamikaze,” which is getting re-released as their record’s lead single. The song is true to its title, a blazing fireball that is anchored by a frenzied, composed rhythm section and an uninhibited, fearless vocal. “I’ll rip right through your body,” they repeatedly sing before doing just that. You can’t say they didn’t warn you.
The Royal They is out September 24 via King Pizza.
