Experimental noise rock legends Royal Trux has just unveiled two new tracks, which happen to be the band’s first new music since the year 2000 when they released their last pre-hiatus record Pound for Pound. The two tracks are titled “Every Day Swan” and “Get Used to This,” the latter of which features Kool Keith.
After making a name for themselves in the noise rock scene throughout the 90s, Royal Trux went on hiatus for fourteen years before reuniting for a series of live shows in 2015. After their initial run of tour dates, they seemed to have finally got back together in the studio. The band had originally said that they were planning on returning to the studio to record a new full-length earlier this year, but no details on an LP have yet been revealed.
“Nothing has changed within the Truxian universe we created for ourselves as teenagers; because Trux is and will always be our way of life whether living it together or separate,” says the duo’s Jennifer Herrema. “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.”
Herrema continues: “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 future of Royal Trux.”
The band has also announced that they will be again heading out on tour this coming February.
