Both Neil Hagerty (vocal, guitar) & Jennifer Herrema (vocal, moog, guitar, melodica) haven’t been seen together as Royal Trux since 2000 and now they break the truckin’ silence with not one but two(!) new tracks. But if you backtrack, in the 90s they were the male/female rock duo that defined the decade. Everything that followed in their wake was affected. Armed with albums of extrasensory scope, and accepting nothing less than the title of “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”, they came, they saw, they imploded.
The duo has recorded two new trucks in the summer of 2018 out in Los Angeles. Both “Every Day Swan” & “Get Used To It (feat. Kool Keith)”, released on Fat Possum today, are the beginning of something yet again, extraordinary. Says Herrema, “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…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.”
The band heads out on a brief tour with more news expected to come. Dates below.
