August 19, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA - Royal Blood's debut album is now available to hear in full a week prior to its official release via iTunes First Play. The self-titled album will be available everywhere on August 25th on Warner Bros. Records. To pre-order the album now, click HERE. 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.
Last week, "Figure It Out", the second single from the UK duo, was the #1 most added song at the rock radio format with over 35 stations adding the record early - an impressive entrance onto the chart. Royal Blood recently wrapped up their first headlining trek in the States and appeared at both the Lollapalooza and Osheaga music festivals earlier this month. The duo was hailed as the must-see bands at Lollapalooza by various publications.
On the heels of the release of the Out Of The Black EP,this past May Royal Blood made their U.S. television debut with a resounding performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Watch the band perform the title track to their EP "Out Of The Black" HERE and "Little Monster" HERE.
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.
