Royal Blood are the result of a lineage that stretches from present day heroes Queens of the Stone Age to the influential Led Zeppelin, and all the way back to early blues pioneers.
Yet this wall of sound emerges from just two men: Mike Kerr (vocals/bass) elicits a roar that a blind test would predict is the result of multiple musicians. Meanwhile Ben Thatcher (drums) complements his band-mate’s attack with the controlled aggression of a young Dave Grohl.
Royal Blood argue that being a duo forces them to find ever more inventive methods to bring their ideas to life.
Widely acclaimed as one of the finest rock albums of recent times, the duo’s self-titled debut entered the charts at #1 in the UK and #3 in Australia. Are you ready for what’s to come?
