Royal Trux release first new music since 2000

Listen to two new tracks from longrunning rock duo Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty

Royal Trux have released their first new music since 2000's Pound For Pound. In 2015 Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty reunited as a duo for a series of shows and the live album Platinum Tips And Ice Cream (Domino/Drag City). These two new tracks, however, were recorded in Los Angeles in the summer of 2018.

“Nothing has changed within the Truxian universe we created for ourselves as teenagers,” declares Herrema, “because Trux is and will always be our way of life whether living it together or separate...This is no hobby rock kick. We are long game lifers with no fear, no regrets and plenty of gratitude for the way the universe has rewarded our singular dynamic.”

Earlier this year the pair signed to the Mississippi based Fat Possum imprint and are set to embark on a US tour in February and March 2019. Listen to the two new tracks below.

“Every Day Swan”

“Get Used To This”

Both tracks are available via iTunes and Google.
