Royal Thunder Announces U.S. Tour With Valient Thorr

Royal Thunder

It’s all starting to come together for Royal Thunder. After signing with the Relapse Records in 2010, it felt like it was only a matter of time before the rest of the country began to catch on to the band’s dark, whiskey-infused blues-metal. Then came the re-release of their debut EP, which turned more than a few heads and built some heavy anticipation for their upcoming first full-length. And now, with CVI scheduled to hit store shelves in just two short weeks, the band has announced that they will be hitting the road for a U.S. tour is support of stoner metal veterans Valient Thorr. The roughly six-week stint, which also includes Holy Grail and progressive rockers the Kickass, will kickoff on June 10 in Richmond, Virginia and will head up the East Coast before crossing the country and back. The tour concludes with a July 19 date at the Chop Shop in Charlotte, North Carolina. You can see the full list of dates below.

Unfortunately, there is no Atlanta date scheduled for the tour. However, Royal Thunder fans should come out in full force when the group celebrates the release of CVI at the Earl on Saturday, May 26. Fellow locals StoneRider and the always amazing Spirits and the Melchizedek Children will play in support.
