The Roys appeared out of nowhere a few years ago onto the Melbourne music scene that is both healthy and diverse, yet sometimes so over crowded that a band can go fairly unnoticed amongst the sheer volume of acts. The Roys however feared not, they had just survived a self funded road trip in the states that had convinced them they were ready for the challenge, so armed with a sense of self belief and ignorance they played a few shows and within a month they were signed to the quality label Infidelity. The band had also recorded a 6 song demo that the label loved and so released as an EP, it received glowing reviews of approval.——— The Roys were up and about and spent the next year touring, playing shows like the Falls Festival and supporting their well repected contemporaries. Early this year cultivating all the sights and sounds and ups and downs they had been through, they bunkered down and started out making their much anticipated multi persona debut album. With a stylistic range that swings from swampy blues to country trash and rock, to even a little soul pop, The Roys please the ears, sooth the soul and stomp the feet. It’s an eclectic feast to behold and to digest.—- Look out for the boys and their debut that is set to deliver on the kaleidoscope volcano that is the Roys with single/album release due May/June 2007. . “The Roys don’t play bad shows…” Beat Magazine…
