Many thought the name was a poor taste attempt to grab attention on the back of a tragedy – but if

Now, with 2013 well underway, the band are keen to pick up the where they left off and let music fans
in the UK know about their unique brand of upbeat, alternative pop. With a self-titled album coming
soon, there’s plenty to look forward to – a sentiment shared by Q Radio & Tuune TV who have
playlisted the track and video respectively.
Though the album release date is still unconfirmed (estimated March 4th), Royal Hoax are excited to
reach a new audience in the UK and will soon be found on radio waves near you – take a look at the
video, and you’ll see why.
Royal Hoax are available for features and interviews now. Alternatively, feel free to
