Royal Thunder Offer Free Acoustic EP, “CVI:A,” Available Today via Amazon & Bandcamp

| 26 June 2013 | Reply


June 25, 2013, Philadelphia – Royal Thunder are offering a free download of their three-song, acoustic CVI:A EP via both Amazon ( and Bandcamp (

The acoustic renditions of “Whispering World,” “Parsonz Curse” and “Black Water Vision,” were recorded in early 2013 and followed an incredibly active period for the young Atlanta band, who released their debut full-length album CVI in May of 2012.  In the intervening months, Royal Thunder crisscrossed the country numerous times with a variety of bands including Dillinger Escape Plan, Valient Thorr and Pallbearer.

CVI was one of the most highly-cited debut albums of 2012 with Spin calling it a “stunning breakthrough,” Rolling Stone describing the trio’s music as “heavy with the meaty, base elements of early-Seventies British blues,” NPR saying the album is “a portrait of songs that have been painstakingly lived-in” and Revolver Magazine calling the release “essential.”  Parsonz also appeared on the cover of Decibel Magazine’s inaugural “Women In Metal” issue.

Royal Thunder, who recently performed at Bonnaroo, return to the road later this summer, joining label mates Baroness for both a North American and European trek.
