New LP from Royal Trux

The record will be their first album of new songs since 2000's Pound For Pound

Last October, rock duo Royal Trux released their first new music since 2000 with two tracks “Every Day Swan” and “Get Used To This”. Now it's time for the album release. White Stuff is due out on Fat Possum in 1 March, with the duo Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty sharing a new single from the release, the title track “White Stuff”.

"It's funny how the outside world perceives or feels compelled to parse complicated relationships and
dynamics...Usually it's an all or nothing game", says Herrema, talking about the new album. "This next chapter is just another perfectly aligned bit of kismet. No concerted effort to force anything forward or to create something
with an eye on the past. Only an awareness that the present had come calling with a gift to assist the future of Royal Trux. The true believers that were once strangers found their way into our universe because everybody was ready for it and it simply, as if on cosmic cue, came to be."

You can preorder physical and digital formats of the album on Bandcamp, including a limited edition coloured vinyl version.
