Royal Red Brigade, a raw, seafaring punk rock band from our prairie province, are currently gearing up to release a six-song 10″ record called Seasides.
“It features new unreleased tracks, a cover song, and even a couple new and improved versions of some old songs,” says guitarist Dylan Ludwig. “That record will represent the last material of the GITTV sessions, and we are almost done writing the full length, which we’ll record when we get back from tour.
According to Ludwig, Royal Red Brigade also expect to make a major tour announcement with dates lined up in Seattle, LA, Austin, Minneapolis and more. Additionally, Ludwig, who also works with Regina’s Harvest King Records, also expects to announce a major show in the group’s hometown.
“We are just about done with the line-up for Mayday, and Royal Red Brigade will take a prominent spot on that show as usual.”
