    Loud, crunchy Nashville rockers The Royal Bangs first got their break with The Black Key's Patrick Carney, signing to his old Audio Eagle label. Now they are releasing their third LP on current 'it' label Glassnote, right after SXSW, and the timing seems right for them to make some splashes.

    Flux Outside is a pretty busy record, filled with busy guitars, scratchy bass, and a momentum to match some of the other blistering Glassnote successes (most notably the omnipotent Phoenix), all with the jangly pop sentimentality of today's best rock. The guys have been playing together since high school, and the tightness shows even in the sloppiest of distorted euphorias. Check out first cut "Grass Helmet" below and lookout for the full album, out 3/29.
