Royal Family Announce 'Here Come The Monsters'
November 6, 2009
Royal Family Clothing is proud to announce our fall/winter line "Here Come the Monsters." This is our best and biggest effort to date. More artists than ever helped to sculpt the unique vision we had for this upcoming line and was inspired completely by our love of classic monster and alien invasion films of the 30s, 40s and 50s. We wanted something completely different from our spring/summer "I Am Royalty" line while retaining the flavor of some of our first designs.

Royal Family
also has 2 brand new limited band shirts. The first shirt is an explosion of color and abstract art from "In This Moment." The other shirt features a critters design for none other than "Iwrestledabearonce." As always the shirts are strict limited editions of 300. Check it out at www.areyouroyalty.com.
