As much a tribute to their hometown of Tacoma, Washington as a source for the most anthemic blue collar rock and roll hymns this side of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN's Darkness On The Edge Of Town, ROY could be Washington State's best indie rock band since the early 90's grunge explosion. Including former BOTCH members Dave Verellen and Brian Cook (also of THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES) as well as current HARKONEN leader Ben Verellen among their ranks, ROY crafts killer jangly indie rock tunes that bring to mind favorites like BUILT TO SPILL, DINOSAUR JR., GUIDED BY VOICES and at times even NIRVANA. (No, we've never heard of NIRVANA either.) While this might seem like a vast departure from the members' other bands, ROY's honest and stripped-down approach will have you humming along and pumping your fist in no time.
