Royal Blood (Rock)

Brighton duo Royal Blood channeled the blues-rock dynamism of the likes of the White Stripes, the Black Keys, and Two Gallants, yet they amped up the ferocity and volume with scuzzy riffs and blustering energy. Comprising drummer Ben Thatcher and bassist/vocalist Mike Kerr, the two-piece formed at the beginning of 2013 when Kerr returned from a trip to Australia and Thatcher picked him up from the airport. They managed to play their first show the very next day and continued to write new material throughout the year. Although constrained to just two instruments, they made their presence known with pounding drums and heavily distorted bass guitar that drove the melodic intensity of their songs, alongside Kerr's emotive vocals. They were championed by the BBC on their Sound of 2014 list, as well as Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders, who wore their T-shirt during their headlining 2013 Glastonbury performance and invited them to open their huge Finsbury Park shows. The duo then released the single "Out of the Black" and signed to Warner Bros. later that year. A second single, "Little Monster," appeared in February of 2014, while a four-song EP, Out of the Black, came a month later in March, collecting the A- and B-sides of the two singles. Their debut self-titled full length was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and was released later that year. ~ Scott Kerr

To millerrc4 - I totally agree! Here in southern California there are only modern rock and classic rock stations. No NEW hard rock is being picked up by the stations in my area. It's so frustrating! Someone should start a new station so I can hear new bands like this playing the kind of music I like.

It's really something to watch 2 guys pounding out so much sound. Saw them on Later with Jools Holland and they straight-up blew everyone away. They rock hard and it's fantastic to watch the singer sing and play lead base at the same time!

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this on 5 other songs, your will be dead in 2 days. Now you read this post this on 5 other songs in the next 143 minutes

I feel like these guys are helping to keep rock music alive. Plus, the fact that it's just the 2 of them is purely awesome.

These guys are badass. Bought their album and have listened to it at least 10 times since I got it a few days ago. 'Careless' and 'Blood Hands' are amazing.

I saw these badasses play at a small venue but I swear... The lyrics for Figure it Out aren't correct on Pandora, and I find that slightly irritating. But other than that I love the band, and can't wait for them to come out with new stuff.

Of course, it makes sense that this band would be very rhythm-orien t e d - seeing as this band comprises only of the rhythm section (a bass guitarist and a drummer). Anyone who likes uptempo rock needs to check these guys out.
Report as inappropriate
I really don't think these guys sound that much like The Black Keys. They're a lot more headbanging, whilst remaining bluesy - and I much prefer Royal Blood over The Black Keys.

@loopsparky, you're comparing a bass guitarist to a guitarist. Let that sink in.

Such a good band to see live. I had heard a few songs on Pandora before the show, and I knew I liked their opener Mini Mansions after seeing them open for Arctic Monkeys so I decided to go to the show. So glad I did! If they don't blow up here in America soon, I will be very surprised and disappointed . I bought the album and have been listening non stop. They played to a small crowd, and I'm really glad I got to see them in a more intimate venue but seriously... t h e y need to be more well known.

I'm at the point, now, where I'm starting to cull down the number of songs by my favourite bands/artist s that I have on my stations - but I've still not thumbed down a song by these guys. Granted, it kinda helps that this band is still relatively new and doesn't have many songs yet - but, still, every song they have thus far is consistently good. Well, not so much the Lana Del Rey cover - but that song doesn't appear to even be in Pandora's library.

I love this band! I haven't heard one song that they do that I don't like. They rock! Can't wait to see them @ Center Stage in Atlanta May 13. Only $25 a ticket this time. Who knows what next tour will cost.
