“ …adding in big beats, subtracting the scuzzy guitars, smoothing out the chorus, and having Alcock give his best Jack-White-yelping impression.” – NYLON

“…a sticky indie edit of the old-school, feel-groovy joint.”  VIBE

The New Royales have a background as interesting as the music they create together. The band has released Freedom’s For The Brave – an album of covers featuring some of their various influences, including tracks by Depeche Mode, The Zombies, Jefferson Airplane & more.

The band previously unveiled their interpretation of The Monks’ classic, “Drugs In My Pocket“ and their irresistible take on The White Stripes’ “Fell In Love With A Girl.” Now, they release Freedom’s For The Brave and the full album is streaming for your listening pleasure!!!

The New Royales’ Liz Rodrigues recently lent her voice to Eminem’s latest hit, “Survival.” 2-time GRAMMY winning (4-time nominated) producer, DJ Khalil, has worked with the likes of Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Drake & Kendrick Lamar. In addition, DJ Khalil and Liz, along with Canadian multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Erik Alcock & Chin Injeti, have co-written with Pink on her 5 million albums sold, The Truth About Love, Pitbull’s Can’t Stop Me Now & Eminem‘s hit record Marshall Mathers LP 2 (“Survival”), which debuted at #1 on the iTunes album chart.

Hailing from separate parts of the world; Liz, Erik, Chin & DJ Khalil, The New Royales’ diverse makeup lends a hand in the uniqueness of their sound, pushing their own musical boundaries whilst still remaining a cohesive unit.

Their diverse backgrounds and unifying passion and respect for music has led to a sound that is eclectic and futuristic with a twist of the past.

Chappo Tour Dates

CHAPPO is pleased to announce a headline coast to coast tour of the United States this April. They are fresh off a busy 2012, which saw the release of their debut album Moonwater on Majordomo Records. They toured alongside indie luminaries Of Montreal, and played major festivals including Bonnaroo, Osheaga, Summerfest and Bunbury. Moonwater received notable praise from Pitchfork, “an excellently overstuffed garage-psych sound.” SPIN noted “nods to classic indie (Pixies, a dash of Grandaddy); with just enough psych-swirls to stay groovy.” “Come Home” maintained a spot on Sirius XM – Alt Nation’s top 18 for over 20 weeks.

The band recently released their new covers EP, Nothin’ To Sell You, reinterpreting songs by Jefferson Airplane, Beck, Kenny Rogers, and Caveman. The EP comes with a limited edition poster of original artwork by lead singer Alex Chappo. The illustration includes references to 5 famous paintings (try to guess which ones.)
