Congratulations! Sweden’s four-man rock sensation and party machine ROYAL REPUBLIC entered the German album charts on #17 with their brand new album, »Club Majesty«! They also entered the Swiss charts on #51, Austria on #68 and also hit the UK rock charts on #10 and indie charts on #29!
To celebrate all the hard work around their new album and to say thank you to all the fans out there, ROYAL REPUBLIC released the music video to their 4th single of »Club Majesty«, ‘Like A Lover’!
“The video was shot in Berlin but the footage was almost completely lost due to a technical malfunction. However, through the miracle of technically skilled people (and money) we were able to salvage much of the footage.
Thanks to the the amazing dancers. Our friend and constant director Leo Åkesson and all the crew who worked tirelessly through the entire night to make this video happen.
While the song is a little bit of a departure for us musically, somehow it always felt very natural to us. We hope it does for you too.”

“…this singularly focused album hustles, struts and sprints unapologetically for the finish line in an exuberant blur of instantly memorable good-time tunes. Club Majesty is smart, funny and impeccably entertaining… Not since the Stones’ Some Girls in 1978 has a rock band stoked a disco inferno with such gusto.” Classic Rock UK
“There’s more than one way to respond to challenging times. The Royal Republic way is to forget everything and dance like a maniac… You can’t kill the disco, they assert, on track two – but when it’s this much fun, why would you want to?” Planet Rock UK
“They tell us we ‘Can’t Fight The Disco’ and they’re so right, so surrender and let this album of the year contender pleasure you; as they also say, “We’re going all in, it’s a win-win.” Certainly is.” Powerplay UK – Album Of The Month

ROYAL REPUBLIC don’t believe in “guilty pleasures” – only pleasures, free of compromise. Since meeting at the Malmö Academy Of Music in 2007, they’ve become Sweden’s most addictive rock’n’roll export; mixing riffy guitars, king-sized tunes and jet-packed beats with their own eclectic tastes and inimitable joie de vivre. Plus the kind of snazzy suits most of their contemporaries wish they had the balls to pull off. They encapsulate the raw spirit of punk with the hips of James Brown and swaggering braggadocio of James Bond. No wonder they struggle to label themselves! They’ll rock the shit out of you and make you dance like you’ve just won the lottery.
ROYAL REPUBLIC are:
Adam Grahn | vocals
Hannes Irengård | guitars
Jonas Almén | bass
Per Andreasson | drums
