ROYAL CHANT Return To WA This Weekend


With the tennis season nearing its peak and a the lure of a Federer v Nadal final further piquing the interest of even the most casual tennis fan, we’re reminded of this cover art from the last album by Port Maquarie’s finest Royal Chant, called The War Cry of Failure. Which is timely given they return to WA this weekend for three intimate shows in Perth, Scarborough & Fremantle.

Royal Chant

To celebrate the occasion they’ve released a new single, Yada Yada Yada, which you can check out on Soundcloud below.

Led by frontman Mark Spence, it’s the first time the band have ventured West since 2014, where they shared the stage with some of WA’s finest live acts including Tired Lion, Hideous Sun Demon and Pat Chow.

Born & raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Spence’s background gives the band an authenticity countless bands attempting US college rock would kill for. His songwriting skill is matched by his work ethic, as the band churn out album after album of 90’s style pop anthems at a rate Guided By Voices would be proud of (find out more at their bandcamp).

Armed with a new rythym section and a killer back catalogue, Royal Chant is essential listening for lovers of high quality, uncompromised and unashamedly passionate indie rock ‘n roll.
