Biography: Award winning Irish band making waves across Europe. Consisting of Paul Walsh(vocals/guitar), Sam (guitar), Eamonn (guitar), Lego (keys), B (bass) and Daz (drums).

The Name.
"Roy" is the oldest of their songs and they all feel connected to it. But to not have any misunderstandings they needed a little addition. And then they listened to an interview with David Bowie saying that a song is never complete until there is listener - so Royseven.

The Beginning.
The Songs were ready by Christmas 2003 when Royseven played a gig before the legendary Dublin band ASLAN. After that I didn't take long for Royseven to have sold out concerts in the Irish capital. Actually they played as "Jove". Shortly after they changed their name to express the new line-up und sound.

The Band.
The band members played together in different constellations since 2000, but not until the 25th September of 2003 they found their final crew of Royseven. That was the day they first played together and they knew the chemistry was right.

The Debut Album "The Art of Insincerity".
Their acclaimed debut album sounds very dark, epic, fragile and full of melodic beauty. It deals with broken relationships and passionate love, anger and comfort, pain and hope. One can feel the intensity of the feelings Paul Walsh had when writing and recording the songs. All seems to be very honest and powerful, all based on Walsh's incredible voice.
Surprisingly Royseven did not really make it very big in Europe but Ireland, where "The Art of Insincerity" went Top20 and the first single "Crash" Top5.

Touring And New Album.
After touring through Ireland and Germany, mostly playing in small pubs, Royseven are back in the studio recording new songs. Plans are to release their eagerly anticipated second album mid 2008.
