Royal Chant @ The Botany View, 18th Jun

“Royal Chant have an uncanny ability to smash big tune together with smart lyricism, to match huge melody to sharp wit.

Royal Chant @ The Townie, 16th Sep

“Royal Chant kick off and by the second song – a double-speed rendition of “I Can’t Make It On My Own” – all memories of acoustic peace are blasted out the back windows. James from Wasters eventually gets to play with electricity tonight, joining Royal Chant for a version of “High Low”, as roaring and […]
