A punch of adrenaline straight to the heart Pulp Fiction style! That is how I would describe the head rattling sound that is Mike Kerr (vocals, bass) and Ben Thathcher (drums), otherwise known as Royal Blood. The UK duo released their debut EP, Out Of The Black, earlier in the year, and the four tracks made quite an impact. The guys have opened for the Arctic Monkeys and Interpol across the pond, and have recently begun a headline tour of the US. All of this attention without a full-length album!
Speaking of which, their self-titled debut album will be released on August 25th via Warner Bros. Records and we have the first single, “Figure It Out”, to fill that head banging void in your soul. Kerr rips into his bass as though it were a six-string on fire and Thathcher hits the drums like a man possessed. Do yourself a favor and check out their website to catch some live footage and you’ll see and hear Royal Blood in their element…on a stage in front of people going bonkers. And speaking of bonkers … check out the video for “Figure It Out.”
If you prefer to experience your music live rather than on a screen Royal Blood will be here in our fair city Tuesday, July 22nd, at Brighton Music Hall for what is sure to be a kick ass show (Tickets and info). Make the beginning of your week more bearable with some all out rock n’ roll. For those of you not in Boston check out the tour dates below and if they are in your town you’ll want to go!
