| 7 March 2013 | Reply


Mar. 7, 2013, Philadelphia – Royal Thunder’s extraordinary momentum continues with the band performing on five of SXSW’s most anticipated heavy music showcases: Pitchfork’s Show No Mercy showcase (Mar. 13 at House of Vans – Mohawk), MetalSucks South by South Death showcase (Mar. 14 at Dirty Dog), Brooklyn Vegan showcase (Mar. 15 @ Emo’s), Converse Thrasher Deathmatch showcase (Mar. 16 @ Scoot Inn) and Mar. 16 on Relapse Records’ Chaos in Tejas showcase at Red 7.

The band, who have been on the road for nearly a year, will join Dillinger Escape Plan this Spring for a six-week tour that kicks off on Apr. 22 in Lancaster, Pa. at The Chameleon Club.  Royal Thunder, who play the House Cafe in DeKalb tomorrow night, wrap up a tour with Ancient Vvisdom this week.

The Atlanta band released their debut album CVI in May 2012.  The release was called a “stunning breakthrough” by Spin,  Revolver called the album “essential” listening and Decibel placed singer Mlny Parsonz on the cover of their inaugural women in metal issue.  Royal Thunder closed out 2012 with multiple year end/best of accolades including the Village Voice (#10 on Top Ten Metal Albums of 2012), Spin (#6 on 20 Best Metal Albums of 2012) and #11 on Revolver’s 20 Best Albums of the year.
