Meaning of Royal Pirates:
“‘Royal’ and ‘Pirates’ are relative words. They’re mirror opposites of our band’s identity. We named it with our band’s goal to connect to ‘royal’ lineage of rock bands by being today’s legends, and to make the music beyond generations and express freely with spirits of ‘pirates’ in the voyage.” (from Daum Music Bar Interview)
