"Tracksuit, Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics, Custom Royal, Helen Shanahan - Ya Ya's"

Next up was Custom Royal, a four-piece outfit decked out in their best Mod revivalist skinny jeans and skinnier ties. Custom Royal serve decent, solid adolescent rock, with a notably British guitar sound and a side of guitar solo from talented lead, Dion Mariani, who casually chewed gum throughout the set. Following single, Sweet Disguise, the band produced a stunning nostalgic '90s dope rock song out of nowhere before seeking refuge in screeching riffs reminiscent of The Beatles' White Album work with an oddly Australian flavour, bringing handfuls of the audience up to dance. - The Music

"A Night Of Hidden Treasures"

Another pint and it's over to the Navy Club for a set by R&B vocalist Shameem Taheri-Lee, before jetting back to the Buffalo Club to watch Custom Royal. An energetic, wiry four-piece that sound like the lovechild of latter-day Arctic Monkeys and the Who, their riffs are dirty and big, but there's a tunefulness on display that suggests something very special is bubbling away. - Rolling Stone Australia

"Distant Murmurs Festival - Rosemount Hotel"

With absolute power and swagger, Custom Royal exchanged their classy looks and punk rock with the Four5Nine crowd, which was packed in like sardines. Judging from the crowd’s reaction, it’s fair to say the charismatic four-piece has a lot of potential with their tight act. - The Music


Still working on that hot first release.



Custom Royal are rock and roll progeny, they play tight, punchy rock and roll. Custom Royal is Mitchell MacKintosh, Dion Mariani, Cameron O’Loughlin and Darcy Barnard delivering huge anthemic tunes, hallmark killer guitar riffs and steadfast vocal harmonies.

Custom Royal have been described as, “A wall of catchy rock, complete with windmill arms, rock star stances and catchy harmony-rich choruses.” - Drum Media

Song writing is what drives Custom Royal, they are prolific in their craft and continue pushing their creative boundaries to produce recordings that make you sit up and take notice. The release of their official debut single, ‘Sweet Disguise’ saw Custom Royal added to the playlists of countless radio stations Australia-wide, including Triple J. The accompanying music video was also aired on ABC’s Rage programme, with The Music magazine reviewing the single as, “...real nice punch-rock attitude. Listeners will no doubt enjoy the crisp guitar riffs and solid vocal harmonies.”

Custom Royal are a compelling and charismatic live act with a plethora of local headline and support shows under their belt, recently touring with British India and supporting the likes of Stonefield, Andrew Strong & The Commitments, Wheatus and even the enigmatic David Hasselhoff!

The band recently finished tracking their debut four-track EP at Wastelands Studio, produced by Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe). After a rigorous production and recording process, the EP has arrived back from US mastering extraordinaire, Brian Lucey, who is responsible for mastering the Arctic Monkeys’ ‘AM’ and The Black Keys’ ‘El Camino’
Custom Royal are over the moon to finally launch and release their highly anticipated debut EP, backed up by local and national tours.

With such an enthralling live show and an EP in hand, Custom Royal have burst onto the scene, emerging as an exciting new outfit beginning to make waves throughout the industry and punters alike.
