English rock duo Royal Blood have announced that they will be embarking on a huge tour of the UK commencing this week. The tour will help support the band’s upcoming second studio album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’, which is set for release in June.
Royal Blood are a hard rock duo formed in Brighton, England in 2013. Consisting of vocalist / bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher, the band transitioned from playing small open mic sets to becoming one of the UK’s biggest acts, thanks to the success of their self-titled debut album in 2014.
‘Royal Blood’ peaked at number one on the UK albums chart, and was supported by the popular singles ‘Out Of The Black’, ‘Little Monster’, ‘Come On Over’, ‘Figure It Out’, and ‘Ten Tonne Skeleton’. The record received positive reviews in a number of top music publications, and was eventually nominated for the coveted Mercury Prize in 2014.
The band are currently playing a series of intimate shows around the UK in preparation for the release of their upcoming album ‘How Did We Get To Dark’. They have now announced that they are planning a large scale tour of the UK, with tickets set to go on sale on May 26.
