PALAYE ROYALE’S HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM FEVER DREAM OUT NOW
28 OCTOBER 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – JUNO Nominated band Palaye Royale’s highly-anticipated new album Fever Dream is out today via Sumerian Records/Virgin Music Group/Universal Music Canada. Made in collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Chris Greatti (YUNGBLUD, WILLOW), the 13-track set came to life over the course of a year, with the band working in deliberate seclusion and taking abundant time to sculpt each lavishly orchestrated track. The resulting set is their boldest and most visionary body of work to date.
Alongside the album, the band is releasing a video for the song “Line It Up,” feat. LP. The reflective ballad expresses the band’s desire to deviate from suburban life. Legendary singer-songwriter LP lends her unmatched vocals to the song, creating powerful harmonies that drive home the track’s emotional and emphatic feel. The accompanying video, directed by Ivy Tellin, intercuts footage from their recent North American headline tour with scenes shot with LP at the famous Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, CA. Watch the video here.
About the collaboration, LP says, “I connected to this song right away. Palaye write with such emotion and I feel like I’ve lived this song too. All the bleak feelings coming together that ultimately make you wanna live forever or die tomorrow. Raw shit.” Palaye Royale elaborates on that, stating, “It’s such an honor to have such an epic human/musician be on the track so organically. We know how beautiful the world can and will be regardless of the darkness.”
Palaye Royale have been teasing out glimpses of Fever Dream throughout the last several months, including new single “Lifeless Stars,” Alternative Radio hit “Broken,” and the majestic title track “Fever Dream,” a throat-shredding epic that fully embodies the transcendent spirit that’s earned the band a cult-like following through the years. Other sneak peaks include the confessional “Paranoid,” the darkly addictive “Punching Bag,” and the undeniably infectious “No Love In LA.”
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.”
With unparalleled swagger, the Canadian-born, Las Vegas-bred brothers Remington Leith (vocals), Sebastian Danzig (guitar) and Emerson Barrett (drums) have endlessly delivered an electrifying live show, one that frequently finds Remington hanging from the rafters. The trio is at the tail end of their North American headline run with Mod Sun, rounding out a busy year on the road where the band brought their adrenaline-fueled rock-n-roll circus to their biggest headline shows to date. They began the year with an expansive North American tour with Yungblud, followed by a sold-out headline tour across the UK and Europe, where they packed venues like the Roundhouse in London and an arena in the Czech Republic before hitting the European summer festival circuit. Their current headline run was bookended with a raucous set at the When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas. They will play their final U.S. show of the year at the Palladium in Los Angeles on November 6.
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.
