Album Press Release:Is 2019 the best time to be in a rock band? To put everything you have into cranking out albums full of, as Broke Royals call it, premium rock & roll? No Depression gave their last album 8 out of 10, and Billboard lauded their single “Bad Chemicals,” but check the charts: rock’s definitely not on top. That’s exactly why our playlists and record collections need their raw, soulful, emotive, guitar-and-synth-driven tunes. Like their fellow rock poet from Freehold Borough (Springsteen), they inject enough of themselves into their songs to make them personal but keep a hang-back perspective that makes them universally resonant.DC’s Philip Basnight and Colin Cross write songs that are made for stadiums, but they connect on a gut level like they’re being played to a packed bar whose crowd almost drowns out the PA. The nuance, raw emotion, accessibility, and directness of their sound almost go unnoticed because it just feels so organic, as if their songs wrote themselves. Saint Luxury, the new album, is their best effort by far.The album tracks the period of life between youth and adulthood when everything that made sense forever just… stops making sense. It’s a rite of passage we all have to walk. But Broke Royals know we don’t have to walk it alone. Meet Saint Luxury, patron saint of wanderers, truth-seekers, doomed lovers, and those who have to decide between going for broke, or getting broken. The band’s second full-length is a concept record in the spirit of Sgt. Pepper’s. It’s the journey of an angel who’s had it with Heaven and stumbles into Saviordom when she lands among us mixed-up locals. But it’s way bigger than one character’s arc; it’s the soundtrack to an entire world.“Love & Tatters” has a dynamite, stuttering drum beat that sets the stage for a love story that’s messy, misguided, and most of all, real. It’s a rock anthem that drives like it’s trying to escape its fate. In the alpha of the pack, the single “The World Is Ours,” the band turn the microscope on themselves. And talk about bad decisions. Basnight shouts at the Heavens, “God why’d you make us a rock n roll band,” but one minute into this distorted-guitar Americana ripper, you know exactly why. It’s pretty clear they love rock and soul classics about rough times and real people. They’re here to shake rooms with huge, killer choruses and spread the gospel that someone out there gets you. We’re all in this together, and maybe saving ourselves means saving the folks around us.
When Peter met Saint LuxuryShe said “hey kid come cover me.God knows I need a break.You gotta watch these pearly gates.”She told the choir “I’m headed west”And we all said, “Hey send our bestBut don’t say we didn’t warn yaThere’s no rules in California.”
Pre-ChorusShe said “I’veGot all the answersI need some questions.”She took the first plane out of heavenShe took that first plane
ChorusShe came for linesThat’d change her lifeShe came for big ideasSo tired of always being rightAnd that’s alright here
She cut her hair and drove the coastIgnored the boys who loved her mostMixing luxury and wineOh, she could dance into the nightIn every town she wrote a songAnd all the people sing alongJust like you’re singing here tonight
