We are a nation that prides itself on choosing its royalty. Oprah. Lady Gaga. Rupaul. You know, the queens. But meet the real U.S. Royalty below. For some reason, this backstage photo from SPINof the royal dudes at the Sweetlife Festival this past weekend shows their innate born and bred swagger. When you can wear a ruffled shirt so naturally, it’s the feather in the cap. I went on to hear their single Equestrian (which has caused quite a stir/YouTube feud due to its airtime at American Eagle) and it’s every ounce of rock I’m craving to kick the summer off early. With roadtripping vibes, they’ll be the king of the road this summer. See the vid here.
