Royseven win out over Furtado

Royseven’s producer Andreas Herbig, currently producing the band’s second album in Hamburg, has turned down the opportunity to mix Nelly Furtado’s next single.

In a conference call with the singer, Herbig told her he’s focused on Royseven as “a labour of love” and that the Irish band’s new album had to take priority!

The band are already three weeks into a five-week recording session for the album, provisionally titled You Say, We Say, with the producer known as “the boogieman” and is due for release in late Spring 2010.

As Royseven’s Paul Walsh told Hot Press, "It's great to finally be back in the studio. We're delighted and relieved to have signed with Road Runner Records and really feel like we're part of an industry family now. We're extremely happy with how recording is progressing and working with our producer Andreas Herbig is a joy. He’s so talented and has tonnes of ideas. As soon as we finish recording, we start pre-production for touring, so happy days!"

Roy Division

With their epic, anthemic sound, Royseven seemed set for uber-stardom, especially in Germany where they were groomed by the local branch of Universal Records. But a shake-up at the label and a lay-off of several years means it’s very much a case of starting over for the Dubliners. With their new single all over the radio, singer Paul Walsh talks about riding the corporate rock rollercoaster, HANGING with Bryan Adams and the group’s glad-to-be-gay new video

I'm Revived

Strange to win a Hope For 2007 award after releasing a Top 20 album on a big international label – I’m guessing the ‘hope’ is that there’ll be a future for the Tipp sextet. For this to happen, they’re going to have to do a lot better than the rather bland ‘I’m Revived’. Their commendable live efforts just don’t come across on CD which means that while Paul Walshe begs you not to “saaaaaay it’s over yet” you kind of wish it never started.

It’s always interesting when an Irish band appear from nowhere all but perfectly formed. Mind you, Royseven have previous form as Jove, and have been honing their new incarnation around the Europe circuit. Both factors show through on a confident, emotive and expensive-sounding debut that attempts to muscle in on the already crowded epic rock market.
