Rigoletto just announced the April 2nd release of their debut full length, Delusions of Grandeur. The 10-track record showcases their rock ‘n roll sound, intricate writing style and passionate energy. In addition, the music video for Queen’s Hotel, the album’s first single, releases today.
Delusions of Grandeur symbolizes the idealized dream of rock band stardom. The record documents life spent in New York City (opening and closing with sounds of the subway), in comparison to the band’s small city Tennessee upbringing. “Hometown” encapsulates the idea of using music and hard work to carry an artist out of his or her hometown and into new and exciting places.
“Queen’s Hotel,” inspired by Corey Snipes (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) stay in New York, once again touches on city life. The video features aspects of the city while recounting the story of a failed relationship.
