Royal Trux Announce First New Album In 19 Years 'White Stuff', Reveal Title Track

Monday, 07 January 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Royal Trux have announced their first new album for 19 years.

‘White Stuff’, the follow up to 2000’s ‘Pound For Pound’, is due for release on March 1 through Fat Possum. The title track is a guitar based rock track, but also dips its toes into elements of world music, punk, jazz, metal and electro, beneath some truly grizzly vocals from Neil Hagerty.

Co-vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Herrema said of the band’s return:

"Nothing has changed within the Truxian universe we created for ourselves as teenagers; because Trux is and will always be our way of life whether living it together or separate... This is no hobby rock kick. We are long game lifers with no fear, no regrets and plenty of gratitude for the way the universe has rewarded our singular dynamic."

She continued:

"It's funny how the outside world perceives or feels compelled to parse complicated relationships and dynamics...Usually it's an all or nothing game. This next chapter is just another perfectly aligned bit of kismet. No concerted effort to force anything forward or to create something with an eye on the past. Only an awareness that the present had come calling with a gift to assist the future future of Royal Trux. The true believers that were once strangers found their way into our universe because everybody was ready for it and it simply, as if on cosmic cue, came to be."

'White Stuff' tracklist:

1. White Stuff
2. Year Of The Dog
3. Purple Audacity #2
4. Suburban Junky Lady
5. Shows And Tags
6. Get Used To This
