Blacklist Royals on tour with Face To Face, Teenage Bottlerocket; new LP ‘Die Young With Me’ out soon
Salad Days

Nashville’s Blacklist Royals are embarking on a national tour with punk veterans Face to Face and Teenage Bottlerocket (see dates below).

The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their new LP ‘Die Young With Me’, which should be out sometime this summer. Working their way up from the dingiest of clubs and barrooms sprawling in and across North America’s borders to the stages of European festivals performing in front of thousands, Blacklist Royals have spent the last three years on the road supporting their debut full length ‘Semper Liberi…’ chasing the often fleeting rock-n-roll dreams of youth like a siren song, and finding their own voice along the way. Their long awaited follow-up album, ‘Die Young With Me’, is a testament to that. There was a very deliberate change in the writing process as twin brothers and founding members Nat and Rob Rufus entered the studio to begin going through new material with the band, and the record went on to take shape as a truly autobiographical collection of songs Topically revolving around the personal account of a childhood spent battling cancer, the album unfolds as a fluid thing, exploring new directions both sonically and lyrically with candor and heart like never before. Blacklist Royals will soon head back out on the roads and highways whose miles echo through each track of their new record. As production comes to a close, the album itself seems to spin like tires on faded blacktop, taking the listener on both a personal and collective journey of love and heartbreak, born rolling reckless under the star-spangled nights of America.
