New Blood: Royal Blood

Lights Out

April 14, 2017


One of my favorite new arrivals of the last couple of years is English duo Royal Blood. The first time I was them I was blown away by the fact that it was just 2 dudes, 1 on bass and one on drums making that huge sound. Mike Kerr holds down all of the parts on bass with a couple of amps and a series of pedals.  It's pretty cool to watch.  Later that night their drummer Ben and I got blind drunk on tequila and chased puppies around backstage at Key Arena.  Actual puppies.  Small dogs.  I digress.

Looks like our wait for new music from Royal Blood ends in June with the release of their second full length studio album "How Did We Get So Dark" on the 16th. Check out "Lights Out" right here. -RC
