Palaye Royale On Talkin’ Rock Download

24:30 Download April 11th

Sebastian, Remington, and Emerson from Palaye Royale were nice enough to stop by the station before their show earlier this week. After playing three songs for the staff, they hopped into the studio with me to talk about the band.

I had seen on X that Remington said that Songs For Sadness was very personal to him. He spoke about how his mother’s illness has really affected each of them, who are brothers. Being on the road, and leaving their mother is always hard. This was a very touching part of the interview. I wish nothing but the best for “Mama Royale”.

The guys talked about the dichotomy of how Palaye Royale writes songs. Sebastian said Remington brings a lot to the lyrics, Emerson is good on the piano even though he’s the drummer, and each of them bring something different. “We had eighty songs – for the upcoming album – so we narrowed them down to ten” Remington told me. He also said “If there’s not a deadline, I will tinker with it” when talking about recording songs.

They also talked about the success they’ve found overseas. Over here in the States, they’ve opened for so many bands but they’re looking to do a headlining tour of their own. As a matter of fact, they’re playing Wembley Arena in November. Sebastian said Gene Simmons gave them some great advice early on, which they still use to this day.

The band actually started out on the Disney channel. They talked about the difference between playing Disney shows, and then going off on their own for shows. They went from big crowds to playing to empty rooms.

I was shocked to hear that the guys were hockey players, as their family has roots in Canada. I didn’t think we’d be talking about that during this interview!
