The rock band was formed in 2004 with 4 members, and was named Fading From Dawn. Unfortunately, bassist Richard Kim passed away in a car accident in 2008. After changing their band name to Royal Pirates, they started uploading music covers on YouTube.


They were an independent music band but made their official Korean debut on 25th August 2013 on SBS’ music show, Inkigayo. So far, they’ve released 4 EPs and 1 single, and their albums have been peppered with songs in English, Japanese, and Korean. This appeals them to a wide range of audience and the band also performed as guests on actor Lee Min Ho’s “Reboot: Minho Tour”.

Their latest release was around a year ago with their 6-track EP “3.3”, however, bassist James Lee met in an accident prior to their comeback, prompting him to give up the bass for the keyboard.
