New Orleans' Royal Teeth sign to Dangerbird Records

Monday April 30, 2012 - 40 months ago

Royal Teeth‘s six members come from three cities across Southern Louisiana, a state known for its colossal musical output over the centuries. Now residing in New Orleans, their beat-centric sound is a technicolor addition to the legacy of Louisiana. The band could not be happier with their new home at Dangerbird, saying, “We are beyond excited to be a part of the Dangerbird family. It feels great to be part of a team that we know really cares and wants to see us succeed. We look forward to an amazing year!”

Of the signing, CEO and Founder of Dangerbird Records, Jeff Castelaz shares, “I love New Orleans. My wife, Jo Ann Thrailkill, is from there, and we spend a lot of time in the city. For years, I’ve wanted to sign a band from New Orleans — to raise the Dangerbird flag there, to show our solidarity with the city.” Castalez continues, “On Halloween night, we got invited to see this band Royal Teeth at a little venue just outside the French Quarter. As soon as they hit the stage I got that special feeling inside, and I knew they were the band that would allow us to put our stamp on the city’s musical lineage.”

The band’s debut EP, Act Naturally is now available from the Dangerbird webstore and on iTunes.

Catch Royal Teeth on their first extensive U.S. tour, playing dates with labelmates Fitz and The Tantrums, The Kooks, and 2 Skinnee J’s.
