Unleashing the Untamed Spirit of DIY Grunge Rock
Raw Energy, Raw Emotions: A Sonic Journey with Royal Bloom
Introducing Royal Bloom: a DIY, high-octane, grunge rock powerhouse hailing from Ayr. Since their formation in mid-2016, this three-piece band has been leaving an indelible mark on the Scottish music scene, captivating audiences with their raw energy and uncompromising sound.
Royal Bloom burst onto the scene with their acclaimed 6-track debut EP, 'Under The Bridge' in 2016, followed by the highly anticipated 10-track album 'Visceral' in 2022. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Alice in Chains and Nirvana, their music hits with the force of a bar fight, delivering a visceral and cathartic experience that resonates deep within the listener's core.
Comprised of Lewis Wise, Kyle McKnight, and Aaron Dick, each member of Royal Bloom brings a wealth of musical experience to the table. Lewis Wise embarked on a journey of musical self-discovery after leaving his previous band, refining his distinctive style and approach. Kyle McKnight and Aaron Dick, having performed in bands prior to the formation of Royal Bloom, boast an extensive and enduring history within the music scene.
Over the past few years, Royal Bloom has left an indelible mark through their electrifying live performances, which have graced renowned venues such as King Tut’s, O2 ABC, The Garage Attic, QMU, Cathouse Rock Club, Hard Rock Café, Krakatoa, and HMV. They have embarked on exhilarating tours, showcased their talent at festivals, and consistently sold out shows, leaving audiences craving more.
Royal Bloom's unique brand of grunge rock has garnered them recognition and praise from various publications and media outlets. Their music has been featured in Stencil Mag twice, STV, Rock and Roll Traffic, The New Hellfire Club, Ayrshire Post, and Emerging Rock Bands Magazine twice. The Weekender describes their sound as "the album you didn't know you were waiting for," finely tuned yet abrasive, angst-ridden yet reflective. STV commends their direction, stating, "It's great to hear this music coming back to life. I think you're heading down the right roots." Meanwhile, Rock & Roll Traffic Magazine hails their debut EP as a refreshing and invigorating sonic experience.
