L.A. rockers Palaye Royale have certainly earned their stripes.

After landing in Los Angeles as teenagers, the three brothers that form the nucleus of the band came through the ranks the hard way, starting out playing in basements and dingy dive bars before gradually building their name and brand into something which could compete on the international circuit.

Now playing to sold-out crowds at some of the world’s biggest music festivals, Palaye Royale have retreated back down the rabbit hole for their recent album Fever Dream, an album widely proclaimed by some as the band’s boldest and most visionary body of work yet.

Conceived over a twelve-month period and written in seclusion from outside influencers and factors, Fever Dream is 13 tracks that see Palaye Royale return to their roots and where it all started.

HEAVY caught up with lead vocalist Remington Leith to find out more.

“We worked really hard on this record,” he began. “I think it’s a huge step forward for the band and is definitely our best work so far.”

We push Leith for more details on the musical direction on Fever Dream, to which he replied.
“We just wanted to make something that we could be proud of. We didn’t make it for anybody or anything besides ourselves. This is the music that we wanted to create and the music that we wanted to listen to. There’s so many tracks over five minutes that have beautiful orchestras and breakdowns. There was really no limits on this record for us. It was awesome creating everything that we wanted to create with no pressure or no limits or no-one is telling you no and that was so beautiful because we really got to express ourselves.”

In the full interview, Remington talks more about the individual songs on the album, working in isolation and how that influenced the finished product, the early days of the band and where they fit in, their early vision and how it has changed, the decision to expand the band in 2017 and how difficult it was bringing in someone outside of the family, their loyal fan base dubbed The Soldiers Of The Royal Council and where they got their name, appearing on a recent episode of Sound & Driven and more.
