unnamed (1)

“I dress like shit, call it fashion — but your fashion’s the shit”

The Royal Concept have announced dates for their upcoming fall headline tour exclusively. The Swedish alternative pop quartet will perform in major markets across North America in support of their brand new EP, Smile —available at all digital retailers now. You can see the full itinerary below.

Just last week, the boys premiered the lyric video for their latest single “Fashion.” Merging together retro-style performance footage and a striking color scheme, the clip visually complements the song’s distinct musical strut. Watch it HERE!

The band consistently garners acclaim from critics. LA Music Blog wrote, “The group continues to blend funk, indie, and pop, tying it all together with uplifting choruses that are perfect for the end of summer.”

To record Smile, The Royal Concept — David Larson [vocals], Filip Bekic [guitar], Magnus Robert [bass], and Frans Povel [drums]—entered a Los Angeles studio with producer Tony Hoffer [M83, Phoenix, Depeche Mode, The Kooks] behind the board. The EP’s five tracks bristle with an unshakable energy and swaggering charm. First single “Fashion” straddles the lines between funk, indie, and pop, converging on an anthemic refrain.

The Royal Concept ignited an international buzz with their 2013 smash “D-D-Dance.” It soared to #2 on Hype Machine, as follow-up songs “Gimme Twice” and “World on Fire” landed at #3 on #1. Their debut The Royal EP also saw them receive coverage from Rolling Stone, Billboard, FILTER Magazine, Alternative Addiction!, and more. Meanwhile, Examiner predicted, “there are big things ahead of this group” and Glamour proclaimed “Gimme Twice” “one of this summer’s big hit songs.”  “On Our Way” became their biggest hit, landing over 25 syncs including Glee, FIFA 14, and more.
