Royal Thunder offer a first listen to music from the Atlanta-based outfit’s sophomore album, Crooked Doors (April 7, Relapse Records), with the song “Forget You,” which is streaming via Soundcloud below...

“We are very excited to have the song ‘Forget You’ be the first song premiered off our new album Crooked Doors, said Royal Thunder guitar player and co-founder Josh Weaver. “It makes sense for us to premiere ‘Forget You’ first, as it was one of the first songs we wrote and played out live after or last album, CVI. Thank you to everyone who has showed us love and support and made this album possible! Enjoy!”

Royal Thunder is Mlny Parsonz, Josh Weaver, Evan Diprima and Will Fiore.  Royal Thunder began work on the album in early 2014, returning to work at the Aria Recording Studio where they recorded the band’s critically lauded debut, CVI.  Pitchfork described singer Mlny Parsonz as “a blues-rock banshee of a woman, equal parts riot grrl and gospel diva” while Spin said she “commands a bluesy mix of Led Zep and Sleater-Kinney.” Rolling Stone’s David Fricke said Weaver’s playing has “the meaty, base elements of early-Seventies British blues.”
