Royal Noise Brigade was a Ska/Punk band out of the Allentown/Bethlehem area in Eastern Pennsylvania. Their sound broke the mold for the genre exhibiting hard driving passion filled punk verses followed by mellow, sometimes psychedelic, bluesy soliloquies.
Their early career was as a high school garage band, but they soon blossomed into a better post-high school garage band with a pinnacle of production in the form of their third album; Leaving, and ending on a different note with a Rock(or Ska) opera about racial tensions in 1960's America taking place in the year between Martin Luther King Jr.'s march on Washington D.C. and the infamous event known as Bloody Sunday.
For a local band that barely penetrated beyond the bounds of the tri-state ska culture they had an extremely good production value that rivals, and even surpasses, that of labeled bands. Their legacy carries on as posthumous popularity grows since the bands demise in 2004.

If you can get your hands on one of their CD's buried deep in some unexplored region of your local Pennsylvania/New Jersey record store I suggest you hold on tight because you own a piece of Lehigh Valley ska at it's absolute best.
