The Royal Noise forges an ebullient fusion of sinewy funk, gritty jazz and psychedelic rock. Their high energy performances deliver heavy grooves, genre blending compositions, intricate synchronism, incessant experimentation and top-notch musicianship that sets them apart from their peers and keeps avid listeners returning to shows.
This is the group's second studio release, produced by Shane Baldwin at Elevated Basement in Savannah, GA. Their latest efforts feature infectious grooves, hypnotic melodies and an evolution in sonic textures, drawing influence from such acts as Frank Zappa and mid-period Herbie Hancock, as this "bunch of rhythm devils" (Brian Robbins, Jambands.com)
continues to redefine modern jazz-funk fusion.
“The Royal Noise are surely living up to expectations… well on their way to making a name for themselves in the jazz/funk music scene with their high energy, emotion filled and astonishing instrumentals” – Annette Vicente, Plugged In Promotions
“Groove, groove, and more groove – with a side order of groove and a frothy mug of groove to wash it down with… the ability to effortlessly pull off serious sonic shape-shifting is just exactly what The Royal Noise appeared to have been blessed with at birth… Unbreakable finds the band even tighter, more eclectic (it’s true), and completely in control of the powerful sound they generate. The bottom line: believe it or not, they just keep getting better.” - Brian Robbins, JamBands.com
“The Royal Noise takes us on a time traveling adventure to a distant future where vehicles are flying, people are teleporting, holographic communication has taken precedent, and the soundtrack to our lives, provided by The Royal Noise, is extraterrestrial in nature – Outerspaciopsychadelicajazzyfunk (outer-space-e-o-psychadelica -jazzy-funk)” - Kevin Tshiamala, Home Grown Music Network
