Listen To New ROYAL TUSK Song 'Aftermath'

August 3, 2018

ROYAL TUSK has signed a worldwide deal with Entertainment One (eOne). The band's new album, "Tusk II", will be released on October 26. The first single from the disc, a song called "Aftermath", can be streamed below.

"'Aftermath' laments the way the constant bombardment of horrific events has desensitized us to ultra-violence," says vocalist Daniel Carriere. "I should be losing sleep / but losing isn't enough / because there's not a tragedy so bad it keeps me up."

Fans who pre-order the LP on iTunes will get "Aftermath" as an iTunes instant-grat track. "Aftermath" is available on all streaming platforms today.

Blue-collar troubadours from the Great White North, ROYAL TUSK are steadfast champions of the majesty of kickass riffs, meaty hooks, a thick bottom end, and loud guitars. The four-piece band born in Edmonton, Alberta mounts a high-octane assault on the lazy security-blanket, self-aware irony of hipsters and the disingenuous commercial pandering of rock poseurs alike. This is music with meaning, sometimes even a message, that's always built around a powerful vibe and uncompromising passion.

ROYAL TUSK is a deeply soulful celebration, brimming with working-class optimism and tempered by renegade realism. On its sophomore-slump-smashing "Tusk II", the group summons the effortless energy of an era of rock music when bands weren't content to merely reverse-engineer hit-making formulas to move units.

ROYAL TUSK is a band with more in common with DEEP PURPLE and AEROSMITH than anything on commercial radio.

"Tusk II" arrives on the heels of the band's well-received debut, "DealBreaker" (2016),and first EP "Mountain" (2014).

Trailblazers like SOUNDGARDEN, MUDHONEY and PEARL JAM defined success on their own terms, putting artistry and authenticity first. ROYAL TUSK follows in that fine tradition, reveling in unbridled creativity that is provocative, nuanced, and captivating. The laidback charisma of stoner groove, the polished melodicism of classic and progressive rock, and the energy of punk all collide within ROYAL TUSK, earning them a steadily building buzz as big as their riffs.
