Washigton, D.C.-based Rock band Broke Royals have taken a challenging approach to their upcoming third album, Local Support, due out July 15th, 2022, bringing in a grittier feel to help capture their live performances. The album itself is about “being brutally honest, savoring small moments, and finding the strength to start over”.
In 2020, Broke Royals reworked their system top-to-bottom and started writing more collaboratively. With producer Bartees Strange as their guide, they made Local Support, writing and rewriting slowly throughout the pandemic, sometimes all together and sometimes individually.
The influences of Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty are on display, and in keeping with their previous records, the new music still explores the heavy themes of “love, heartbreak, religion, and anxiety in the modern world”.
Broke Royals has shared stages with Lynyrd Skynyrd, AWOLNATION, Dashboard Confessional, Car Seat Headrest, Michigander, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, and more.
