NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (February 12, 2014) THE ROYAL ROYAL's Nathan and Gabriel Finochio roar back on the scene to once again create worship music for the next generation on their sophomore release, THE RETURN OF THE KING, which releases to digital retailers March 4, 2014. The Return of the King features fresh, yet honest lyrics on personal, yet universal songs and is released in partnership with The Paradigm Collective and distributed by Central South Distribution and Sony RED.

"Our favorite thing to do as artists is create; the opportunity to record another album is a complete thrill from start to finish," said Nathan. "It's great to work with someone you know almost as well as yourself. It's 'no surprises' living, and it really adds confidence."

Brothers, Gabriel and Nathan grew up in the church where their dad was the pastor. "Our parents taught us to love the church and the value of serving the church; we think serving the church is the best use of our musical gifting," said Gabriel.

The 10-track collection features the lead single "Holding On" and the follow-up single "Every Little Bit Of Praise," which debuted at #19 on the AC/CHR charts. The latest single to hit radio is "Real Strength."

"'Real Strength' is for those who have purposed in their hearts to make God their source, and this song is for God to draw you to Himself," said Nathan. "We pray that our generation be one that can see and move beyond the emptiness and confusion of modernity, with its constant distractions that try to fill our anxious souls, and into the presence of our living hope, Jesus Christ."

Producers David Kuwabara and the band's Nathan Finochio worked together to create a musical paradox. "Gabe and I write, play, and talk about how we want the album to sound stylistically, and then we bring David Kuwabara into the picture, who magically materializes and structures the madness in our heads," said Nathan. "Our prayer for everyone that plays this record is two-fold: that they re-discover Jesus Christ in the freshest way, and that the old things seem brand new, all over again."

The Return of the King track list:
1. The Lights
2. Every Little Bit of Praise
3. Holding On
4. You Make Me New
6. Real Strength
7. Great
8. The Answer

"Every Little Bit of Praise" LYRIC VIDEO:

ABOUT THE ROYAL ROYAL: The Royal Royal is a partnership of brothers, Nathan and Gabriel Finochio, who write songs, lead worship and emerge from the studio with a bag full of musical paradox. If you want the one-liner, then this is it: The Royal Royal plays at the intersection of new sounds and ancient truths. Nathan and Gabriel grew up as pastor's kids and attended Portland's City Bible College. The brothers recognize that their upbringing gave them an understanding of the power of music influenced by James Taylor, Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder. Their first album Royalty debuted in October 2012 at No. 15 on the Christian iTunes chart. Their second album The Return of the King will release in March 2014 with The Paradigm Collective.

ABOUT THE PARADIGM COLLECTIVE: The Paradigm Collective is a creative team built to walk along side as an independent and creative marketing force to help brand and help direct a creative road map with realistic and collaborative end game goals. Our commitment is to tell stories people can believe in. Our work reveals the who, the how, and the heart behind a brand, conveying a truth people can follow.
