Royal Baths

About Royal Baths

The Royal Baths are a San Francisco-based indie rock band whose music is a dark but curiously engaging mixture of garage rock sneer, Velvet Underground-style buzz, psychedelic murk, and post-punk throb. Founded in mid-2008 by singer/guitarists Jeremy Cox and Jigmae Baer (formerly of Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall's band), the group was originally known simply as Baths; under that name, the group made its recorded debut with a cassette-only release, followed by a 7" single. Cox and Baer then discovered L.A. electronic artist Will Wiesenfeld was using the name Baths, and they added Royal to the moniker to set themselves apart. Woodsist Records released their first full-length album, Litanies, in the fall of 2010. Frustrated with the scene in Frisco, the duo moved to New York and released their sophomore effort Better Luck Next Life on Kanine Records. ~ Mark Deming
