Blue-collar troubadours from the Great White North, ROYAL TUSK are

steadfast champions of the majesty of kickass riffs, meaty hooks, a thick

bottom end, and loud guitars. The four-piece band born in Edmonton, Alberta

mount a high-octane assault on the lazy security-blanket self-aware irony of

hipsters and the disingenuous commercial pandering of rock poseurs alike.

This is music with meaning, sometimes even a message, that’s always built

around a powerful vibe and uncompromising passion. Royal Tusk is a deeply

soulful celebration, brimming with working class optimism and tempered by

renegade realism. On their sophomore-slump-smashing TUSK II , the group

summons the effortless energy of an era of rock music when bands weren’t

content to merely reverse-engineer hit-making formulas to move units.

Royal Tusk is a band with more in common with Deep Purple and Aerosmith

than anything on commercial radio. TUSK II arrives on the heels of their

well-received debut, DealBraker (2016), and their first EP, Mountain (2014).

Trailblazers like Soundgarden, Mudhoney, and Pearl Jam defined success on

their own terms, putting artistry and authenticity first. Royal Tusk follows in

that fine tradition, reveling in unbridled creativity that is provocative, nuanced,

and captivating. The laidback charisma of stoner groove, the polished

melodicism of classic and progressive rock, and the energy of punk all collide

within Royal Tusk, earning them a steadily building buzz as big as their riffs.
