WORSHIP DUO, THE ROYAL ROYAL, RELEASES DEBUTE

THE ROYAL ROYAL RELEASE LABEL DEBUT THE ROYALTY

 HAILED AS “PASSIONATE,” “POWERFUL” AND “FRESH”

 KICK OFF TOUR DATES WITH CROWDER MUSIC NOVEMBER 2

NASHVILLE, TENN –October 18, 2012 – This week, The Royal Royal released The Royalty on The Paradigm Collective/Provident/Essential Worship. This album debuted at No. 12 on the Christian iTunes Chart, where it has remained in the Top 20 this week.  Fans have been introduced to the worship duo on the Phil Wickham tour this fall as well as at the highly attended The Story conference and the National Worship Leaders conference in Orange County. The duo will continue touring this fall kicking off their first show with Crowder Music in Pittsburgh on November 2.

 The music The Royal Royal pieced together on The Royalty is a reflection of what they believe God has called them to do. Featuring 14 tracks, including four acoustic songs, brothers Nathan and Gabe Finochio hope that each listener will be inspired and refreshed through the testimony of The Royalty.

 “We have worked hard on the record, and we've been honest and true to what we believe God has called us to say and do,” shares Nathan. "Work, in a very Biblical sense, is worship and we believe that God can breathe upon and establish the work of human hands through this record.”

 The Royal Royal digitally debuted their EP Royal on May 15, 2012 and hit No. 1 on the iTunes Christian US and Canada Charts. Royal’s “Praise Him,” is the first single off of The Royalty, which released to AC/CHR radio in June and is also featured on Hillsong LIVE's current album Cornerstone.

 Read what the media and fans are saying about The Royalty:

 The message of each song contains timeless vertical expressions of praise to the Lord. The Royal Royal has truly created an album that gives us what we need: to see old truths as though they are new.”

- Worship Leader Magazine

 The Royal Royal wanted to release a fresh and original album that will captivate a listener's heart and soul and they have done just that.”

 If you were to listen to The Royalty without the lyrics, you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s a worship album at all. That’s a terrific testament to the originality present. While neither The Royal Royal’s style nor lyricism are unexplored, they haven’t been combined quite like this.”

- Indie Vision Music

 It is truly awesome! I love it! I have been getting more and more tired of the rotation of worship songs I've been hearing lately and this just mixes it up perfectly. I am so stoked I came across these guys because its constantly playing in my car. Most definitely anointed.”

 About The Royal Royal:

Hailing from Ontario, Canada, brothers Nathan and Gabriel Finochio joined musical forces to write songs, lead worship and deliver lyrics that breathe new life through ancient truths.

 “We desire that a new generation hear of the faithfulness of our God in their generation; that is our mandate and that is our heart. We pray you are encouraged in your spirit and stirred up in your most holy faith as you listen and worship with us.”

 Growing up as pastor’s kids, the Finochio brothers were greatly influenced by their father’s love of music. Developing a heart for modern congregational worship, The Royal Royal also credit James Taylor, Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder as musical inspirations. The Royal Royal has been building their fanbase since last summer as they played tour support for John Mark McMillan and Hillsong UNITED. Both Nathan and Gabriel attended seminary at Portland Bible College and currently serve at their respective churches in Toronto and New York City.
