Royal Teeth have announced their return with the anthemic new single “Never Gonna Quit” along with an accompanying music video that features Valerie Sassyfrass of the viral sensation “Girl’s Night Out” performance showcased previously on Ellen (as seen on TV here). The band has also shared that fans can expect touring later in 2018 and more music leading up to a new album from the band.
The forthcoming record marks Royal Teeth’s long overdue comeback to indie rock, with a progression in their sound that exudes energy and conviction. Taking it back to 2013, their bubbly hit single “Wild” was riding alternative radio waves across the nation and getting tons of clicks with their slow-burning, electrified music video. Now, five years later, things have changed for the band – everyone has situated into lifestyles and careers outside of the music industry. Recently though, a spark of inspiration caused grounds for discussion of a Royal Teeth comeback – and the whole band is on board.
“There were days where I just accepted that this was probably going to be over soon,” vocalist Gary Larsen recalls. “Something finally switched inside of me. I decided that if we are going down, then we are going down swinging.” Feeling inspired to create new songs with a new fresh sound, the quartet whole-heartedly decided it was worth banding together for this project.
“Never Gonna Quit”, which premiered via Baebleyesterday, is the trademark motto for the band.
“It became the mission statement for the whole album,” explains Larsen. “It felt like we just hit restart. We didn’t want to compare anything we were doing to anything we had done. We love that you can feel the aggression and the sense of urgency but it never loses its purpose or joy.”
In the video, Sassyfrass roams around town on a personal mission to spread music and radiate positivity. Initially, her unsuspecting audiences are stunned by the performance and not sure how to react. By the end though, due to Sassyfrass’s resilient nature, everyone takes heed to the notion and joins in on the party. “Never Gonna Quit” is available now to stream at http://bit.ly/NVRGNAQT or see the video on YouTube, and fans can connect on socials via the hash-tag #NVRGNAQT. Nell Snow at Baeble writes “between Valarie Sassyfrass’s dancing, the infectious beat, and… a mysterious blow up dinosaur costume? I dare you to watch this video without smiling.”
Royal Teeth is composed of singer and guitarist Gary Larsen, singer Nora Patterson, guitarist Thomas Onebane, and drummer Josh Hefner. For more information visit royalteethmusic.com.
