Royal Blood: The Revivalists of Rock

While simultaneously opening up for the Foo Fighters on their current U.S. tour, Royal Blood are also making their rounds melting faces everywhere they go while playing the summer festival circuit. Out of Brighton, UK and only comprised of two members, Royal Blood have been working their way into the ears of listeners globally. Ben Thatcher (Drums) and Mike Kerr (Guitar, Vocals) released their self titled debut album “Royal Blood” in 2014 and have been touring nonstop ever since.


Now alongside the likes of The Black Keys, Jack White and Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood are yet another genuine band attempting to revive the formerly cherished genre that is Rock music. Though their live show simply consists of Thatcher and Kerr humbly placed next to each other on stage with their instruments sans any fancy lighting or backdrop, Royal Blood blasts out the loudest headbangers you’ve heard since the 90s.

They’ll be hitting Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater with the Foo Fighters on August 16th and 17th so be sure to grab your tickets! Check out Royal Blood’s single “Figure it Out” below.
