Grande Royale launch the digital single and music video ”Stark Raving Mad”. Mixed by Robert Pehrsson (Death Breath, Dundertåget, Imperial State Electric, to name a few) in Studio Humbucker, ”Stark Raving Mad” is the third and final single leading up to the Swedish garage rock band’s sixth studio album ”Welcome to Grime Town”, set for release in late March via The Sign Records.
Grande Royale on ”Stark Raving Mad”:The idea of the song began with the kind of catchy melody that we thought had a hit quality about it. While jamming with the raw material,the song finally turned out to be harder and faster than the original idea.In the end, what you hear is à fast punk song with a lot of grit, seasoned with a catchy chorus. The lyrics evolved from the title, stark-raving mad,taken from a Monty Python-ish universe, which we thought created an interesting and kind of twisted approach to the songs main theme about mental illness.
Grande Royale’s album ”Welcome to Grime Town” will be released on the 24th of March, 2023. The album will be released on CD (Digipack), transparent yellow vinyl, transparent red vinyl, and all streaming platforms. The physical album is now available as pre-order.
