Los Angeles – Royal Blood’s much-anticipated self-titled debut album is out now on Warner Bros. Records. To purchase the album on iTunes, click HERE. This past weekend, the band performed at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK, leading NME to crown the duo as “easily the biggest breakout band from Reading and Leeds Festival 2014″. This fall the band will embark on a North American tour, which includes 10 nights supporting The Pixies in addition to headlining dates. See below for a complete list of upcoming shows.
The band’s debut album has already received rave reviews in the UK, earning four-star reviews in Qand Daily Mail and a 5K review in Kerrang!, to name a few. Hit single “Figure It Out” is currently Number 1 on Spotify Top Tracks and the 2nd most played track at Radio 1 in the UK. The song is also being featured this week as the iTunes Single of the Week in the US.
Royal Blood is a mixture of anguished vocals, ferocious drumming and bass that provides intricate detail as well as a rumble of rhythm. The duo’s sound is a 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 huge wall of sound emerges from just two men. In next to no time, the two have earned critical praise following the release of their debut single “Out of the Black” on the band’s own label Black Mammoth Records last year.
