Little Monster Reading


Royal Blood performed live at the Reading music festival and rocked their adoring fans.

The BBC have released footage of their storming live show. In the clip, the rock duo are playing their second single Little Monster.

Brighton’s Royal Blood released their self titled debut album on Monday, the ten track LP might be short, clocking in at only thirty-two minutes but packs a heavy rock punch.

The band Comprises of drummer Ben Thatcher and bassist-vocalist Mike Kerr, the two-piece formed at the beginning of 2013.

The rock duo have garnered praise for their big riffs, thunderous pounding drums and fat distorted bass lines, basically they’re pure rock.

Mike Kerr told the BBC, “The philosophy behind this band was ‘can a riff be a chorus?’ Can you make verses, choruses and bridges – classic, standard songwriting – out of riffs, without it being disgusting?”

They have been compared to the likes of The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age and The Black Keys.

Royal Blood are a group that have to be experienced live. They’ve already played a sold-out show at the Workman’s Club earlier this year and supported Arctic Monkeys in Marlay Park during the summer.
