Formed in London, England, in 2006, Royworld -- Rod Futrille (vocals), Rob Parkin (guitar), Tim Miles (keyboards), and Gerry Morgan (drums) -- were led by Rod and his brother -- and co-composer -- Crispin Futrille, and rounded out after the other members answered an advertisement looking for musicians. Soon the band was expanding out from its school territory -- Harrogate -- and playing shows at such legendary clubs as the Hope and Anchor. In 2007, the hard work paid off, and the band attracted the attention -- and signed a one-off deal with -- indie label Fierce Panda. The small label eventually released the group's debut single, "Elasticity," in late 2007. Royworld were then ready to begin work on their major-label debut, having also inked a longer-term deal with mega-label Virgin. ~ Chris True, Rovi
