Editors’ Notes

Like many great rock duos before them, Royal Blood manage to create a sound that’s greater then the sum of their parts. On the outfit’s self-titled debut album, Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher combine for an unabashedly heavy blend of bristling riffs and deep, canyon-like grooves that have made fans out of Jimmy Page, Arctic Monkeys, and Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis. Using an armada of pedals and amps, Kerr plays a bass guitar like a standard six-string; this creative choice lends an inherent, unrelenting menace to Royal Blood. On the outstanding opener, “Out of the Black,” Thatcher’s sternum-rattling drum work is Dave Grohl–like in both its power and precision, while Kerr’s colossal guitar and vocal turns recall the arena-ready theatrics of Muse’s Matthew Bellamy. In the squeal and squall of “Careless” and “Figure It Out,” Kerr conjures the corroded, wonderfully pugnacious guitar sounds of iconic two-piece frontman Jack White. No matter their reference points, Royal Blood has an attack that's ruthlessly direct.

Customer Reviews

Excellent… Don’t listen to “Jazzrasta"

Can’t wait for this album.

FYI, Jazzrasta’s highest reviewed album is a singer from “The Voice” covering “Lady Marmalade.” You seriously have no business rating anything ever again in your pathetic life.

Best New Band to come along in a LONG time.

I had the privilege to see these guys in Brooklyn a few months ago, they blew me away. I bought all the singles and can't wait until their debut album drops on the 25th.

great band

why is it that a two piece band must be a rip off of the white stripes. I think these boys have got thier own style, cant wait for the full album! unlike the white stripes the drummer is better than your average 7 year old


Formed: January, 2013 in Brighton, Sussex, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Brighton duo Royal Blood channeled the blues-rock dynamism of the likes of the White Stripes, the Black Keys, and Two Gallants, yet they amped up the ferocity and volume with scuzzy riffs and blustering energy. Comprising drummer Ben Thatcher and bassist/vocalist Mike Kerr, the two-piece formed at the beginning of 2013 when Kerr returned from a trip to Australia and Thatcher picked him up from the airport. They managed to play their first show the very next day and continued to write new material...
