The Royston Club are a four-piece indie band from Wrexham, North Wales consisting of Tom Faithfull (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Ben Matthias (lead guitar and lead song writer), Dave Tute (bass) and Sam Jones (drums).
Tom, Ben and Dave started playing music together in 2017, then added Sam on drums in 2019 to create The Royston Club. They were only together a few weeks when they self-recorded and released ‘Shawshank’ which took off with over 235,000 streams on Spotify.
Singles ‘Waster’ and ‘Kerosene’ followed, and 400,000 streams later the band headed to the famous Parr Street Studios in Liverpool to record their debut EP ‘This State I’m In’, marking their most accomplished work to date. A physical release on 12” vinyl followed with hundreds of copies selling in a matter of days.
The band went back to Parr Street Studios in August 2020 and teamed up with fast-rising producer Alex Quinn (The Blinders, Spinn, SPQR), and recorded four new tracks. The first single ‘Mrs Narcissistic’ is set for release on 13th November 2020, with mastering duties by Robin Schmidt (Blossoms, Sports Teams, Vaccines).
The band have also announced a debut headline tour for Spring 2021, with over 1,000 tickets already sold months in advance.
