They have also released limited edition long-sleeve t-shirts to accompany the release of the song, a portion of proceeds from the sale of which will also be donated to Giffords and March For Our Lives. Fans can purchase the single here, purchase the t-shirts here and donate directly to Giffords here and March For Our Lives here’Massacre, The New American Dream’ asks the poignant question ‘Why are we so casual ’bout these casualties?’. Since it’s release last month, the track has been featured on 12 major streaming playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday (in both US and Canada), Rock This and All New Rock, Amazon’s Fresh Rock, Fresh Noise and Rock Scene, Deezer’s Hot New Rock and YouTube Music’s Rock Hotlist and Your New Alternative.
Speaking on the song and the new video ‘Massacre, The New American Dream’ Palaye Royale say:

“This is a protest. In hopes to give this new generation a revolution in the form of an anthem. We are all on the verge of waking up and truly understanding that people should not be afraid of their government, government should be afraid of their people. This is how we feel about the current state of America. We are the new era, United we stand, in search of retribution ​for​ those ​who have been wronged.

We are tired of seeing innocent people being gunned down so unbelievably often and still there is no change. How many more innocent people have to die for change to happen? Government and the news share no sort of resolve or actions of change for these problems​. This is why we have chosen to donate proceeds from the single sales to Giffords and March For Our Lives who are on the front line, fighting to tackle the gun violence epidemic our nation currently faces. We encourage our fans to take a look at the incredible work they do and either ​purchase the single, ​donate​ directly​ ​​or learn how to get involved at Giffords.org and MarchForOurLives.com
We put forth our creative anger to depict the current state of our civilization. Our protest song is titled ‘Massacre, The New American Dream’. It speaks to the fact that there seems to be more kids growing up to become famous for school shootings than famous for anything else in America. “In every Church, School and Synagogue, Virginia to Littleton when will it stop?”. We asked ourselves this question each time we see yet another mass shooting broadcast across our TVs.
There is a shadow that looms over this generation, “What is the New American Dream?” To our understanding, “It’s a Massacre”​. Enough Is enough. United, we can be the difference.

Palaye Royale have had a busy 2019. They have toured as main support to Halestorm followed by their own headline ‘Funeral Tour’ including sold out shows at Irving Plaza in New York and The Fonda in Los Angeles. They have also played several global festivals this summer including Sonic Temple Festival, Download Festival, Isle Of Wight, PinkPop, Nova Rock and Reading and Leeds.

Palaye Royale have also been hard at work behind the scenes putting the finishing touches to album #3. Titled ‘The Bastards’ and surrounded by a utopian world created by the band, the new album is slated for release next year and will be accompanied by a graphic novel series, a trilogy of tragic books as opposed to comic books, that weave an intricate tale giving each individual member a backstory. This story is reflected throughout the band’s visuals, music and artwork. Clues and secret symbols relating to the story have been placed throughout that band’s output since their inception for fans to find and decipher.

What The Press Are Saying
“The hottest new band on the planet. Three brothers with a penchant for doing things their own way, they’re bringing rock ‘n’ roll to a new generation”
 – Rock Sound Magazine (cover feature)
“If the Rolling Stones and My Chemical Romance had a love child it would be Palaye Royale”
- Alternative Press (cover feature)
“Of course, none of this would matter if the music wasn’t good. It is. There’s a dash of early-Rolling Stones to what they do. A bit of The Faces. Quite a lot of T-Rex. A peppering of the New York Dolls, maybe even some Arctic Monkeys, while Remington has the sort of voice a man called Remington is supposed to have. Raspy, soulful, lived in.”
“Welcome the next wild and dangerous millennial rock band.”
- The Aquarian Weekly
“Wash away the make-up and there’s no denying that Palaye Royale are making some of the more interesting and intriguing music of 2018. And while Side B may be the band dropping the curtain on their Boom Boom Room era, it signals their arrival as a genuine force to be reckoned with.”
- Kerrang!
“..the performance of the day from Palaye Royale… teetered thrillingly on the edge of chaos. When Iggy Pop-style singer Remington Leith clambered atop the speaker stack, he caused a panic among security staff”
- The Guardian
