Formed by Mike Kerr [vocals, bass, keys, piano] and Ben Thatcher [drums] in 2011, Royal Blood emerged as an iconoclastic force in rock. Following the 2014 release of the self-titled Royal Blood, the duo received “Best British Group” at the BRIT Awards, “Best British Newcomer” at the KERRANG! Awards, “Best Live Band” and “Best New Band” at the NME Awards, and more. The group rose from close-quarters gigs into a festival favorite everywhere from ReadingandLeeds to Coachella in addition to playing alongside Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, and Metallica, to name a few. The band’s 2017 second full-length, How Did We Get So Dark?, earned widespread acclaim with NME claiming, “consider this the sound of modern masters honing their craft.” Averaging over 2.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, their total streams near 500 million as of 2019, unprecedented for a rock band.
