Title: By Royal Decree (Transparent Light Blue Vinyl) (incl. 2 CD)
Artist: Flower Kings
Label: Inside Out Germany
Product Type: VINYL LP
Limited 180g triple vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket including two CD edition. On By Royal Decree, TFK focused on recording new material, as well as reviewing material left on the cutting room floor from previous sessions. Roine Stolt elaborates, "It was great to dig into that old treasure island of 'forgotten TFK music before TFK ever existed' and re-connecting made me realise why and what The Flower Kings are. This album is a journey through my history as a writer and my 'middle age' saga reflecting on that." Founding member Michael Stolt returns an absence of more than two decades to contribute bass and vocals (splitting duties with current bassist Jonas Reingold).
