Biography

ROYALUSH!!!! A band who has gathered an international following most musicians can only dream of! Layering punk fueled energy with chilling . harmonies this foursome eats rock n rolls heart and spits it back at you. What surprises most, are lyrics of hope and karmic healing all tied up in this very cool rhythm package. Sooo, who the@#*&^ are these guys??
Royalush started when two brothers, Kris and Kory Carpenter began playing (drums) Kris,(bass) Kory in daddy’s garage on lazy Cali summer afternoons . familiar right??? Well Kris and Kory played as kids, but not together ....Because of their oh so slight age difference, they wanted nothing to do with each other for about ten years .... When guitarist Jacques de Groot showed up, things changed and the KK rhythm section saw the genius of what could be,, "It was sort of inevitable that Kris and I ended up in a serious rock band," admits Kory Carpenter. "We were raised in a musical family and have both been playing in bands since our school days." Adds Kris, "We had started getting to know Jacques from the music scene in LA. Then one day, he wanted us to record some songs he'd written with him, and we've been a band ever since." But it was the addition of guitarist Jeff Slingluff that really gave the band it's formative sound. Jeff, who had sold the band some equipment, picked up a guitar to show them how to use a new amp they'd just purchased. The next thing they all knew, they had started to jam together right there in the shop and the chemistry was magical. "A few days after that, Kris called and informed me they had a gig that night and needed me to play," laughs Jeff, "so I got their CDs from their previous bands and learned all the songs." "But it was when we started a song he had never heard before," adds Jacques, " that we knew we'd found our guy. After I played the first few bars, Jeff just came right in playing the song for the very first time. The audience was going nuts and Kris, Kory and I were just nodding to one another.
So, now we introduce the energy and songcraft of their new CD , It’s Only Kinky The First Time. This airwave friendly masterpiece features the tune American Cliché... To introduce this exquisitely tight cut, the boys trusted film director Jack Casteloff with their vision and together created a political high energy video that is a true mindblast!! While “American Cliché “delivers, other standout cuts include:”Open Road, "Limozeen"
and “New Day” Interestingly enough, on "Open Road", the instrumentation is much more powerful, yet the vocal harmonies are well-recorded ear candy .
It's Only Kinky The First Time is the latest thread in the?Royalush tapestry. Now touring, catch Royalush if you can......

I'd trade my 44 for love

Written By: Louie Aqua Verde

I'd Trade my 44 for Love

Down she goes, the grass gets crushed
and it trickles out slowly
red, blood, like yours and mine
watch it stain the times
catch me, if you can
I run away, from love
and it hurts, to feel this way, baby what can i say
wont you help me someone

Chorus
I'd trade my 44, for love
I'd trade my 44, and bullets too, would you
I'd trade my 44, for love
I'd do anything, to see my dream come true

Talk to my sister the other day
this is what she had to say
brother, let me inside your heart
I'll tell you a secret, about what mama said
she said you were the kindest, your eyes gold
oh how she loved you, thats what i was told
so don't turn your back us when we need you most
show all the others, how to kill the ghost
(inside your head and let it out)

Chorus
I'd trade my 44, for love
I'd trade my 44, and bullets too, would you
I'd trade my 44, for love
I'd do anything, to see my dream come true

New Day

Written By: Royalush

Everybody, look around you
do you like, what you see

In the mirror, i saw somebody new
i saw somebody who, who look like you

If this is a sign of evolution
then i don't want to go back to school
I don't want to wake up in an institution
were people are afraid to look at you

In the new day, in the new day

Take it all down, let me see inside
Baby let me see your pride, does it turn you on

In the new day, in the new day

Mr Green

Written By: Royalush

All my leaves are green, watch me shoot the sky
with all my might

Were not alone, our roots have filled the hole
relax, release, your ryme

we rule the dance
when sun rays hit the plants
and juices flow onto you

All my leaves are green, watch me shoot the sky
with all my might

your looking well, in your padded cell
calm down, cool off, your jets

I know, things will get better
take my hand, walk with me, across the land

All my leaves are green, watch me shoot the sky
with all my might, cause only mr green can reach that high
watch him climb

I raise my glass
to the flowers trees and plants
let sunshine on you

All my leaves are green, watch me shoot the sky
with all my might, cause only mr green can reach that high
watch him climb

Limozeen

Written By: Royalsuh

Cruising down the boulevard inside the limo
Watching all the stars go by
People stop and fantasize who's in the limo
Hero, idol or celebrate

The driver won't slow down unless i say so
destinations where i am

Tint so dark and mystical inside the limo
Faces fade into the night
Wicked endless drinks and love makes me mellow
Malicious extacy delight

The driver won't slow down unless i say so, i said so
Destinations where i am
We see the world through tinted windows
A joyous toast champagne and gin
