‘If you haven’t heard of Royal Blood, there’s a chance you’re living under a large, soundproof rock…’9/10 The AU Review

‘Primal. Gigantic. Loud as cannons. Royal Blood are all of these things.’ – NME

Having just wrapped recording sessions for their highly anticipated debut album with producer/engineer Tom Dalgety (Band Of Skulls) at Wales’ Rockfield Studios, Royal Blood are heading back out on the road. The band have just dropped a brand new number: ‘Come On Over’, which roars with power and proves yet again just what all the fuss is about – check out a live session for NME here. Live, this duo has the goods, with tour invites from Arctic Monkeys, Interpol and Foals and upcoming festival slots confirmed for Europe’s biggest events including Glastonbury, Lowlands, Way Out West, Bergen Fest, Reading and Leeds. Check out the band’s recent performance of ‘Little Monster’ on British TV show ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ here.

Joining Royal Blood as special guests in Melbourne are searing local garage rockers APES, who won over triple j and BBC1 with their debut single ‘Seven’ back in 2013. Their subsequent debut EP has seen them share the stage with the likes of The Datsuns, Dune Rats and Yacht Club DJs, as well as landing spots on the Big Day Out and Groovin’ The Moo. Check out latest single ‘Helluva Time’ here.

In Sydney, rockers Born Lion will also take to the stage. Having been compared to bands such as Fugazi, The Hot Snakes, Future of the Left and The Bronx, this hard-hitting indie Sydney outfit was namechecked by triple j as one of 2014’s Next Crop acts, while Rolling Stone reckon a recent gig saw them tear “the ceiling off the place and shove it piece by piece down the appreciative audience’s throat”. Currently on the road with Karnivool, check the video for ‘Good Times Jimmy’ now.

Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr (bass) and Ben Thatcher (drums) first burst on the scene back in November 2013 with one shuddering single – the momentous ‘Out of the Black’ (listen here), which immediately saw them name-checked on the BBC’s Influential Sound of 2014. Next came the incisive muscle of ‘Little Monster’ (here), lifted from their debut EP, Out of the Black.

With soaring hooks, awe-inspiring aggression and killer riffs, blues rockers Royal Blood will leave you limp on the floor. Tickets for Sydney and Melbourne are selling fast… Grab yours now and don’t miss out!
