Royal Trux Share Their First New Songs in 18 Years: Listen
Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty return with “Every Day Swan” and the Kool Keith-featuring “Get Used to This”
Royal Trux are back with their first new songs since 2000. Today, Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty shared the singles “Every Day Swan” and “Get Used to This” featuring Kool Keith (via Fat Possum). Listen below. “Nothing has changed within the Truxian universe we created for ourselves as teenagers,” Herrema said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Royal Trux announced that Fat Possum will reissue their digital catalog of 10 records spanning from 1988’s self-titled debut to 2000’s Pound for Pound. The band are also working on a new album. “This next chapter is just another perfectly aligned bit of kismet,” Herrema said about the new music. “No concerted effort to force anything forward or to create something with an eye on the past.”
Along with the songs, Royal Trux have announced 2019 tour dates. They’ll play North American shows next winter. Find their schedule below; tickets are available here.
