About Royal Blood:
Mike Kerr (vocals/bass) and Ben Thatcher (drums) formed Royal Blood in Brighton, England, and released their self-titled double-Platinum debut album in 2014. It’s thrilling and visceral sound of bass played like a lead guitar with thunderous drums immediately engaged a huge audience. Their reputation continued to explode with the similarly successful follow-up, 2017’s How Did We Get So Dark?
To date, each of Royal Blood’s three studio albums have topped the UK charts, in the process selling over 3 million albums worldwide. Their acclaim has included the BRIT Award for “Best British Group” plus further accolades at the NME and Kerrang! Awards along with a Mercury Prize nomination. They’ve made a major international impact, hitting the Top 10 in a further seven territories and peaking at #2 on the US Alternative Album chart, three #1 hits at Rock Radio, plus four Top 20 records at Alternative Radio and commanding critical praise in influential media outlets such as Rolling Stone, Loudwire, Guitar World and many more. The duo has long been considered one of the most exciting live bands in the world. They have toured with Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age and have gone on to become festival headliners and have toured the globe numerous times and have performed at every major music festival. With the April 2021 release of TYPHOONS, Royal Blood elevated to the next level.
