Sounds | Palaye Royale, Lifeless Stars
Nog maar even wachten, dan is het vierde studioalbum van Palaye Royale eindelijk hier. Fever Dream zal op vrijdag 28 oktober gereleaset worden en als fan van het eerste uur ben ik super benieuwd wat de drie gebroeders dit weer in elkaar geknutseld hebben.
Gelukkig krijgen we nog een nieuwe single voorgeschoteld om de laatste maand op door te komen. Met Lifeless Stars grijpt de band terug op hun geluid van de albums Boom Boom Room Side A en Boom Boom Room Side B. Met veel ruimte voor de rauwe stem van zanger Remington Leith en zachte, begeleidende instrumentals erachter. Het kippenvel stond me op mijn armen gedurende de laatste minuut.
Nu kijk ik nóg meer uit naar het nieuwe album.

Art-rock trio Palaye Royale have released their new song“Lifeless Stars”today via Sumerian Records. The propulsive track is even more celestial than its title suggests, as the reverberating guitars create a lush landing pad for vocalist Remington Leith’s signature growl and triumphant lyricism.The track is the latest offering from Palaye Royale’s highly-anticipated forthcoming album “Fever Dream”due out October 28.
Palaye Royale is comprised of Las Vegas-bred brothers Remington Leith (vocals), Sebastian Danzig (guitar) and Emerson Barrett (drums). Their fourth full-length album, “Fever Dream” emerged from a much-needed break in the chaos, with the trio returning to their roots and composing most of the album on piano, resulting in a body of work that is equal parts ecstatic head rush and in-depth meditation on the state of the human psyche. Palaye Royale explains: “Making this record felt like getting back to when we first fell in love with music”. They continue: “This record is very much about self-belief and self-empowerment, and overcoming all the obstacles that life throws at you. It’s the first time we’ve really taken a hopeful approach in our music”.
The band has been teasing out glimpses of “Fever Dream” throughout the last year, including new single “Broken”, which just impacted Alternative Radio and is currently climbing the charts. Other sneak peaks include the confessional “Paranoid”, the darkly addictive “Punching Bag”, “No Love In LA”, and recently album title track “Fever Dream”, and its cinematic video.
Palaye Royale recently announced their continent spanning European 2023 tour dates - including a night at London’s iconic Brixton Academy Joining them on their adrenaline filled, rock’n’roll circus of a live show will be British alt-rock outfit Yonaka. Earlier this year, they were direct support on Yungblud’s North American tour, followed by a completely sold out headline tour across the UK and Europe, which included their biggest headline shows to date, including the Roundhouse in London and an arena in the Czech Republic.
Equal parts brit-pop, glam rock and art-punk, Palaye Royale has amassed over half a billion streams throughout their career and earned a legion of cult-like fans with their fast-paced dirty rock’n’ roll. First landing in Los Angeles as teenagers, the brothers worked their way up through the ruthless L.A. rock scene going from playing basement shows while living out of their car to headlining arenas around the world. And whether they’re taking the stage at major festivals like Reading and Leeds, Download and Pinkpop or playing to sold-out crowds in such far-flung locales as Amsterdam, Prague and Mexico City, the band’s most crucial ambition is to deepen their rarefied connection with their beloved fanbase, lovingly dubbed the Soldiers of the Royal Council.
