Playing to packed houses at such venues as Gramercy Theater and Highline Ballroom, their live performances are known for being powerfully energetic and brazenly unapologetic. They have been featured twice in Revolver Magazine and Pop-Times Magazine, played on Sirius Octane Satellite radio, was #7 on RXP 101.9 FM’s “Top 9 of ’09″ countdown and won the Fliptup Best Fil-Am band of the year. As friends of the band were losing their jobs and the news headlines got more and more depressing, Diablo Royale went back to that same basement studio and wrote the tracks that would become their latest release GREEDY DOGS. Barrios explains, “A lot of the inspiration for this album came from all of the bullshit going on. Big companies getting their asses kissed while the little guy is hung out to dry.
That’s why I made the artwork the way I did, the people that are acting like they are looking out for us, just aren’t.” With their new release, Diablo Royale is looking to the road to continue making the transition from local to national act, spreading their word, and rocking the masses. Their album can be downloaded for literally pennies at www.diabloroyale.net. Read more on Last.fm.
