Crooked Royals - MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission 082: Crooked Royals

11 Sep 2022 // An interview by Will Stairmand



After 4 long years, Crooked Royals pop back to see Will to have a chat about their new singles, their album release, their signing with 3DOT Recordings - run by none other than the band Periphery, and to update me on Keane's sock situation which, apparently, is still a thing ;)

 

About Crooked Royals

Crooked Royals unearth harmony from unpredictability. The quintet is Christian Carstensen (clean vocals), Lee Mackley (heavy vocals), Jake Andrews (guitar), Keane Gilles (drums), and Conor Lawson (bass). Infusing metalcore with moments of head-spinning off-kilter prog, alternative melodies, and even nocturnal trap R&B, the band switch lanes seamlessly and smoothly.

They bob and weave past boundaries with a deft and dynamic approach. After racking up millions of streams independently and touring with various genre heavyweights, they perfect this vision on their full-length debut album, Quarter Life Daydream out through esteemed label 3DOT Recordings.
