Rising out of Atlanta, Georgia, Royal Thunder have been conjuring rock grooves out of the Southern heat since they were formed in 2004 by guitarist Josh Weaver. Featuring singer and bassist Mlny Parsonz, and drummer Evan Diprima, the band’s hazy psychedelic sound evokes the early days of rock, with Parsonz’s soulful vocals bringing an element of dark drama to the band’s swaggering sound. Royal Thunder made their recorded debut in 2009 with a self-titled EP, which the band self-released before signing to Relapse Records shortly thereafter, and the label re-released the album the following year. Their first full-length, CVI, arrived in 2012, followed in 2015 by a sophomore outing, Crooked Doors. Royal Thunder returned in 2017 with ‘WICK’ released on Spinefarm Records, their most ambitious album to date.
