Flier of the Week: Royal Monsters at The Underground

Normally, when someone gets his or her throat slit open, you'd expect a ton of blood to come gushing out. But Phoenix hardcore band Royal Monsters are a little more optimistic, judging by their flier for a show at Mesa's The Underground on Friday, February 26. According to this intricate piece of artwork, multi-colored creatures spew forth.

Don't think the guys in the band are all too scary. The group is vocal about their disdain for things such as racism, homophobia and sexism, encouraging fans to speak out against injustice in-between moshing to their heavy songs.

Amid all the activism, the group, signed to independent label New Age Records, has been busy recording songs for an upcoming EP at Switchblade Studio. They're also currently playing songs off their self-titled EP.

Royal Monsters plays with Run with the Hunted and Smokus Pocus at 7 p.m. Tickets for the all-ages show are $5 at the door.
