Bio

Port Royal has been holding the rock n’ roll crown in Brisbane since forming in mid-2015 and have, in no-doubt made serious impressions in that time.

It was May 2016 when they released their debut EP ‘The Express’ where soon after they landed their first real support slot with the Sydney-based band, Castlecomer.

Since, they have graced the stage with nationally touring rock acts such as The Delta Riggs and The Cherry Dolls.

It was March 2017 when they reached new heights and gained some real credibility with their single ‘Get Heavy’ that was tied to their unique film clip starring a puppet version of the front-man rocking out. ‘Get Heavy’ was later voted in at #2 on 4ZZZ’s Hot 100 on January 1, 2018.

In September 2017, Port Royal released another single ‘Pinch-Hit’ and embarked on their first East Coast tour. They returned home, landed a spot at Brisbane’s Valley Fiesta and then quickly made plans for to hit the road for the second time.

Fittingly, they called the 11 date tour that stretched from December to February 2018, the ‘Don’t Stop Movin’ Tour’ that had them revisiting Sydney and Melbourne, and on their way made new fans, playing shows in previously unexplored territories.

This Royal family also had the pleasure of playing at Brisbane’s biggest events in February, the Mountain Goat Valley Crawl along side a huge lineup. Later in early April the band performed at Mojo Burning Festival alongside Brisbane rock favourites, Wolfmother.

Port Royal recently released their single ‘Rock & Roll Is Dead’ (released 30th of April) that hit the national radio waves via Triple M’s Home Grown. The single is paired with a massive 15-date tour stretching over the East-coast of Australia.

They will continue their massive first half of 2018 when they return, promising plenty more new rock and roll releases.

Dirtiest of tracks and the best thing to groove to, recommend seeing these guys live, rumour has it a tall blonde tends to take centre stage with the tambourine during this one..
