Blacklist Royals

Average Rating:



Hometown: Nashville, TN (USA)


After years of touring, overcoming everything from member changes to terminal illness, Blacklist Royals DIY approach and die–hard spirit won the attention of Paper and Plastick Records (owned by former Fueled By Ramen founder, Vinnie Fiorello); Gunner Records also supported the band's European release, alongside their catalogue of bands such as Frank Turner and Gaslight Anthem. Both labels released Blacklist Royals' critically acclaimed debut full–length album, "Semper Liberi" in late 2010.

After having spent 2010 touring across the United States and Canada, appearing at SXSW, Harvest of Hope, the Gainesville Fest and more, Blacklist Royals kicked off 2011 by showcasing the song, "Churchbells are Ringing" on the hit television series, "Sons of Anarchy," on the FX Network, followed by a run of sold–out shows with Less Than Jake.

In the early spring, Blacklist Royals embarked on an extremely successful European tour, including dates supporting Dropkick Murphys, NOFX and performing at the sold–out Groezrock Festival.

Following that, Blacklist Royals announced a split 7" with Boston Punk Rock stalwarts Street Dogs (Hellcat Records) just in time to begin their second appearance on the Vans Warped Tour. Complimenting the tour, Blacklist Royals contributed an unreleased song to the SideOneDummy Warped Tour compilation.

For 2012 and beyond, Blacklist Royals are returning to the studio to continue crafting their sophomore album, and preparing for where the road continues to take them.
