The Royston Club
The Royston Club are the Wrexham band tipped by Gigwise as “the new band from Wales most likely to do a Catfish”. 2021 saw the band fly past four million streams on Spotify alone, sell out a debut vinyl run in 24 hours, and sell out a 12-date debut UK headline tour.
The band have gained extensive support from Radio X (Xposure Playlist), BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins & Tom Robinson), BBC Wales (including a Janice Long live session), BBC Introducing as well as Sirius XM in the US.
They were among the first wave of acts to be confirmed for SXSW 2022 in Austin, Texas & recently announced their 18-date UK headline tour for Spring 2022 including their biggest headline show to date at The Garage in London.
The Royston Club are singer and guitarist Tom Faithfull, guitarist Ben Matthias, bassist Dave Tute and drummer Sam Jones.
