""Grimy synths and dirty blues rock.""

“I got an obsession,” Billy Scher and Marc Gilfry repeat in “Lately,” their first single as American Royalty. But after you’ve ridden the song’s roller-coaster for 4 1/2 minutes, you realize the fixations L.A. songwriters have at least a couple of fixations — grimy synths and dirty blues rock among them. Full of samples and artillery-fire electronic beats, American Royalty’s forthcoming EP “El Ardemo” (on Guns in the Sun) bumps and grinds between danceable house music and mullet-worthy classic rock. The band, which includes drummer/electronic wiz Richard Morris, has played only a handful of shows, but one was for the HARD Haunted Mansion warm-up party. Trick or treat? - BuzzBands LA

Whiskey, beer, 2 guitars, 2 singers, drums, computers, synths, samplers. The Los Angeleno 3-piece has created quite a stir around the city with their unique sound and innovative take to the stage. The live show involves equal parts classic rock swagger and psychedelic genius with an electronic pulse. At the front of this musical hybrid are the power vocal leads and airy harmonies of frontmen Billy Scher and Marc Gilfry. While American Royalty's never ending showdown of genres may not be easily defined, the unrelenting energy of their live set makes them a must see for any music fan.
