THE ROYAL - Ask 6


HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?

Before The Royal we were called "From Our Perspective" but we didn't like it very much. One day we we're playing a London Olympics game on the PS3 if I remember rightly, and there is one game mode called "The Royal" archery. We talked a little bit about the name and after that we became The Royal.

WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?

We played a show in Southampton, and after the set a fan asked me and JD to draw something on his arm. I drew our symbol logo, and JD drew a metal horn hand sign. It looked sick!
