Individuality thrives on unpredictability. Rather than follow a well-trodden path, Royal Tusk bulldoze a lane of their own. The Alberta, Canada trio—Daniel Carriere [vocals], Quinn Cyrankiewicz [guitar], and Sandy MacKinnon [bass]—fuse hypnotic hooks to hard-hitting riffs offset by untethered rhythms and undeniably honest lyrics. One moment, they’ll serve up an earthquaking barrage of distortion only to incite a bold stadium-size singalong in the next breath. After amassing tens of millions of streams and earning acclaim from Billboard, Loudwire, Consequence of Sound, Brave Words, and many others, they elevate once more on their 2024 third full-length offering, Altruistic [MNRK].
