Royal Bangs dropped their third LP, Flux Outside via Glassnote Records on March 29th, 2011. As the Tennessee-based band put it, "We are going on tour for the rest of our lives." They just canceled a string of US dates, and have replaced them with opening slots for Cold War Kids, and The Walkmen in Europe. Last Saturday (4/16), Royal Bangs, ANR, and Dream Teens shared the bill at Empty Bottle.
