Grande Royale is a rock’n’roll band who find their roots in the early 70’s rock scene of Detroit and the 90’s rock scene in Scandinavia, mixed up with some vintage pop. The music is straight forward rock’n’roll packed with electric guitars, melodic vocals, and thundering bass lines. Grande Royale is wild and savage rock for a new generation!

Grande Royale’s sixth album »Welcome To Grime Town« will be released in 2023 on The Sign Records. The album is the first Grande Royale recording featuring new member Calle Rydberg, replacing Andreas Jenå on guitars and vocals. The 12 electrifying tracks on »Welcome To Grime Town« were mixed by Robert Pehrsson (Robert Pehrsson Humbucker).

The band’s fifth studio album »Carry On« was self-produced and released in 2021. The track »Just As Bad As You« feature Dregen on guest vocals. The album has a rawer approach than Grande Royale’s previous releases, with more electric guitars and an honest and direct feeling all over it. As with »Welcome To Grime Town«, »Carry On« was mixed by Robert Pehrsson.

In 2019 the band’s fourth album »Take It Easy« was released. The album was produced by Ola Ersfjord, and holds a more southern rock approach than the previous albums. The album holds more soul and has larger arrangements, using instruments like horns to create a big sound. The band toured a lot on the album and did gigs in Spain, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and most parts of Europe.

In the summer of 2016, Grande Royale started to work on their third album in the Honk Palace with Nicke Andersson (Imperial State Electric, The Hellacopters, Entombed) as the engineer and producer. The album got the title »Breaking News«, and was the first album the band released on The Sign Records and was released in August 2017. After the album release, the band went on a tour all over Europe. During the tour, the band recorded their live album »Captured Live«, released in 2018.

During the band’s first year, Grande Royale recorded and released their debut album titled »Cygne Noir« (2014), and the second album was released in 2015 with the title »No Fuss – A Piece By Resolute Men«. At this stage, the band recorded all of their material by themselves, and also released the albums on their own. These records made it possible for the band to go out and play live shows all over Sweden, as well as in the U.K. and Southern Europe. With energetic live shows, and tight performances Grande Royale raised the roof off the venues.
