With a combination of brilliant musicianship, infamous live shows, a mixture of 70’s rock ’n roll, 80’s punk, 90’s metal, and the new millennium’s embrace of this convergence, The Royal Highness has agilely become the most notorious rock band in Denmark.

Biography

Queens of the Stoneage, Chris Cornell, No Doubt and The Desert Sessions, have all enjoyed the talents of Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider, and now the two top producers will begin working with Danish rock trio The Royal Highness.

6 months was all it took for the Danish hard rocking trio. The repertoire was done, the debut was played at one of Copenhagens most famous venues, both the major and indie labels standing in cue to get their signature (still with no success), a US tour in production (beginning April ´05), and now two of the worlds best songwriters and producers has invited the band down to their house to jam, play and write.

The first priority

Dennis Kasten (v.+ g.), Thomas Broge-Starck (b.), and Mads Valther (dr.) had no doubt in their minds when the talk was on who should be the creative partner in crime, if all doors would just suddenly open: At the no. 1 slot on a top ten list it said “Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider” whose work lies behind many of the biggest rock stars of the 90s and 00s. After a little research the band contacted them, and the 2 producers found the sound bits on the bands homepage interesting enough to get back to them, asking for more recordings. Many more emails and phone alls later they invited the band down to their house in the southern of France. “We think that the potential is very strong, and with musical and
psychological flexibility fantastic things can happen” says Natasha Shneider. We agree.

Notorious rock

With a combination of brilliant musicianship, infamous live shows, a mixture of 70’s rock ’n roll, 80’s punk, 90’s metal, and the new millennium’s embrace of this convergence, The Royal Highness has agilely become the most notorious rock band in Denmark. The trio has only existed for less than a year, but in that year they’ve convinced everyone that the metamorphosis has commenced; from the last couple of years’ 2-minute-long garage magnum opuses into the rebirth of rock in the most primal, groovy and undulating fashion.

After 3 months of writing and one show, the band saw themselves with an offer for an international record deal with more to follow. So far, all of them have been turned down. As the band says, “We are definitely in no rush, and right now we’d rather gain an audience than begin to release albums.” With both an Australian and a U.S. tour in current preproduction, there is no doubt that this band is gaining ground so fast, the world is white-knuckled in expectation of what will transpire next…
