Led by singer/guitarist Daniel Carriere and bassist Sandy MacKinnon Royal Tusk have released their first six song EP ‘Mountain’ which has been released on Hidden Pony Records.

‘You may recognize two of us from our previous band, Ten Second Epic. After two Juno nominations, three albums and 12 years of touring, it wasn’t long before we had jumped back in the saddle to form Royal Tusk. The band’s setup to be player-oriented, and we have continued to enjoy the spontaneous nature of the music while recording and performing Mountain . It”s our hope that you feel the same excitement while listening to this collection of songs as we felt writing them. Starting from the beginning can be daunting at times, but hell, we love a challenge. I guess this is our Mountain. ‘
