‘The Royal Society’ was recorded in the tumbleweed-blown Californian desert with Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age), and released through No Death/Universal, it’s a bone-rattling slice of Southern-gothic boogaloo that confirms the Matchbox as “a band of transformation and possibility”, five pulverising powerchorders who’ve ditched their ‘losing to win’ philosophy to reign properly victorious. “It’s all been a run-up to now”, reckons singer Guy McKnight. “This is the real beginning.”

‘I Could Be An Angle’ is a clarion call from a band out to cleanse the doors of perception through “an excess of all things good”.

Prepare for the taking……
