The Top 3 Video Countdown for July 13, 2019! Honeychain, Palaye Royal, Bad Mary, Tomboys (Japan)!


Welcome back the Top 3 Video Countdown for July 13, 2019!


First up today is a trio from Los Angeles and they are called, Honeychain. Honeychain's bio says: "We're an alternative rock band from LOS ANGELES. New album, CRUSHED, produced by Kim Shattuck, available now!" and, "We've been compared to some cool bands. This makes us happy."

Here is Honeychain's Facebook page:

Next up is a band that is coming to Japan and will perform at WWW in Shibuya on Sept. 9th! They are Palaye Royale! Palaye Royal's bio states: "Rightfully christened as both “The Hottest Band of 2018” and simply “the” group of the year, by the English music press, Canadian fashion-rock trio PALAYE ROYALE is a shot of adrenaline into the modern musical landscape. Summoning a thrilling spirit, with throwback sonic crunch, visual flair, and reckless live performances, PALAYE ROYALE has quickly earned a legion of obsessive cult-like loyalists, lovingly dubbed Soldiers of the Royal Council.
PALAYE ROYALE draw as much inspiration from cinema and philosophy as they do from their musical muses, building a story with libertine reverence for Alan Watts and debauchery-fueled nights at the Chateau Marmont, for Johnny Thunders and The Stooges. This band is equally at home in the hallways of Los Angeles Fashion Week or climbing the lighting tresses at the Vans Warped Tour. They sold out theaters on their first-ever headlining tour and steal the show at each major festival."

Here is their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PalayeRoyale/

#2) PALAYE ROYALE - You'll Be Fine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NchEFDH4kQM


At #1 this week is a band from Long Island, New York, called, Bad Mary. Bad Mary is also touring Japan starting August 26 ~ Sept 2. 


Stencil Magazine writes about Bad Mary: "Bad Mary capture something perfect with their style of punk rock. [They] deserve all the appreciation they get, they’ve produced a brilliantly fun album and in the process have put across this feeling that they are having fun with what they do. Anyone who likes old school punk and hard indie should check these guys and girl out as they are fantastic."
