It was the last day for Rock On The Range and you would think all the rain, beer and lack of sleep would have put a damper on people’s spirits. But when it comes to rock and roll, the possibilities seem endless. Like Royal Republic, not quite rock, not quite roll. Promoting their latest album Weekend Man, and touring the US was just a few things I got to discuss with these four awesomely talented guys from Malmo, Sweden. Dressed in suit jackets and smiles, Adam, Hannes, Jonas and Per were a pleasure to talk to and they kept me entertained till the end. I asked RR what they would consider their sound to be, ” it sounds like four men dancing uncontrollably in the shower room,” is what Adam says. Laughing, I had to ask Adam why the shower room, and he replied with another witty and comical response. Feeling more like a hangout with some really cool guys, time flew and our chat was over. With a new-found fondness for the band and a sincere love for their music, Royal Republic are just genuine cool ass dudes in my book, who can make some really great music.
Check out our interview below with Royal Republic and then go check them out.
