L.A based Palaye Royale share surprise EP ‘Sextape‘, via Sumerian Records. The band teased the EP last week with first single ‘Dead To Me’ – watch the video HERE.

Across ‘Sextape’s‘ five tracks, Palaye Royale bounce from some of their heaviest moments, to softer instances of introspection. ‘Dead To Me’s’ urgent lyrical delivery from lead singer Remington Leith makes it one of Palaye Royale‘s most immediate and explosive offerings, whilst the haunting vocal performance and atmospheric instrumentation of ‘Season Of The Witch’  shows the range and development of the band.

Speaking on the EP the band add:

Sextape is that moment in time of complete ecstasy where the world and the problems that it holds falls by the waistline. Where you can forget who you are and enjoy pleasure.”

Sextape‘ round’s up a monumental year for the trio, which saw them celebrate massively successful album ‘Fever Dream‘ with their biggest run of headline shows in the EU + UK, including a sold out show at London’s Eventim Apollo, as well as a packed out set at Reading & Leeds Festival.  

2024 is set to be an even bigger year, with the band set to release another long form project. They’re also confirmed for festivals like Slam Dunk in the UK and Tons of Rock festival in Norway. Full dates can be found below. 

Palaye Royale’s fourth full-length album, Fever Dream, released at the tail end of 2022 and emerged from a much-needed break in the chaos, with the trio returning to their roots and composing most of the album on piano. 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.” 

Equal parts brit-pop, glam rock and art-punk, Palaye Royale has amassed almost 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.
