Blacklist Royals – Semper Liberi
Riding high atop the wings of hell with heartfelt punk ‘n’ roll anthems big in sing-alongs and spiced with a country tinge, Blacklist Royals have played hundreds of shows over the last three years including the 2010 Harvest Of Hope Festival; South By Southwest; the 2010 Red Gorilla Festival; the 2010 Valley Of The Vapors; the entire 2006, the 2007, and the 2009 Vans Warped Tour; appearances at The Fest Six, Seven, and Eight; the 2008 and 2009 Heavy Rebel Weekenders; the 2009 Next Big Nashville Festival; and done stints on the road with legendary acts like Pennywise, Circle Jerks, The Queers, and many more. Hailed by critics and fans alike, Blacklist Royals are standing proof that the great American rock and roll band is not a thing of the past.
Their unique blend of styles and a strong DIY ethic has generated praise from cornerstones in the punk community such as Maximum Rock And Roll and Razorcake, as well as garnering the attention and acclaim of media-giants like the LA Times, Fuse TV, and even Nashville’s biggest rock radio station (naming BLR “Top Underground Act” of 2009 at their annual awards). Their Paper + Plastick full-length, “Semper Liberi” was rated 5 out of 5 stars on Dyingscene.com and was given the top spot in their year-end list of 2010.
