Speaking on the launch of their highly anticipated, ambitious creative endeavor Palaye Royale share:
“Welcome to the world of Palaye Royale, where one can reside, reign and recreate themselves when destroyed by living. Ever since the conception of the band and the first single “Morning Light”, we have been hiding pieces of this story within the lyrics, artwork and visuals. Finally, after years of world, the doors are opened for all to enter. The best travel once can take in times like these is inside their own mind, in memory or imagination. Get lost in the pages of our book. Enjoy the ride. Love the void.”
“The Bastards: Volume 1” is a companion to the band’s third full-length studio album of the same name, which has spawned a string of hugely popular singles – the infectious “Hang On To Yourself
”, fuzzy, distorted brit-pop infused “Nervous Breakdown
”, anti-gun violence anthem “Massacre, The New American Dream
”, the heartbreakingly relatable “Lonely
” and the bombastic, industrial tinged banger “Anxiety
”. To date the album has clocked up 48 million streams on Spotify and 10 million Youtube views.
