Royal Blood (Glastonbury 2017)

An enormous surge of festival-goers preceded the Royal Blood Pyramid stage set, no doubt helped in their decision to catch the band’s main stage debut by the fact that this was the week the new album, ‘How Did We Get So Dark’ hit the number one spot in the charts.

 

Thank you….

Pas leur meilleur titre mais ouf visuellement !!! Lo Ric Beat Sampras Caro Borel je vous prend des places pour le 9 nov. ?

Hi Royal Blood, that was a amusing live interview on-air at triple j [with Zane Rowe from triple j Mornings] earlier tonight, i heard that interview while i was walking my dog listening to triple j on my old school Sony Walkman, well it wouldn't be the first time i've heard something weird on-air at triple j while being out and about listening to the radio on my Sony Walkman (because most of the weird stuff i've heard on-air at triple j is scripted to amuse people with music industry in-jokes for a lame laugh between themselves), like you guys hating Koala's. Well looking at things from a medical perspective, you would have to also look at the scientific facts of the situation to figure things out properly though (well Australia was a isolated environment that influenced the evolution of some very unique animals due to this continent being isolated from the rest of the world), which would suggest chlamydia was an introduced sexually transmitted disease (STD) by the English during the early settlement of Australia - right? 🙂 And talking about handling dangerous Australian animals, when i was a teenager growing up in Liverpool (NSW, Australia) back in the early 80's it was all bush, well i caught a Brown Snake and a Red Belly-Black Snake in the bush behind where i live, and i didn't even know that they were dangerous until a Ranger turned-up after someone rang him thinking i would be killed playing with snakes that day.

Ry Parker now comes the challenge!!! I challenge you to spot us! You have 1 week!

Jack Lambley praying you haven't seen this yet ahaha

De lo mejor que he visto en años en concierto Natxo Melcon Gonzalez, vamos juntos al concierto de Madrid, son la polla

Jesse Goring pretty sure I can spot us at the back of the stage

Cheryl Hawker are you in the crowd? Xx

Harry Rook wtf this is the footage hahaha

He has a pretty cool, yet extensive pedal setup, anyone know what he uses?

Cool video. Amazing sound for just a bass guitarist and a drummer.

I thought this song would make a great Target or Apple commercial...I was close.

So amazing at NOS alive Lisbon, my daughter is now head over heels for Mike!

Arghh, I can almost see his pedal board!

Charlotte Jane why are they not doing a side show 😭

Tom Troup This is actually so good

Some rides are so fast, so wild, so vertiginous that you never want to get off. And when they do end, they’re all the more dizzying once you’ve disembarked.

“Going home was so weird,” says Mike Kerr, only now beginning to comprehend the incredible, inconceivable two-year ascent of Royal Blood, the Brighton bass-and-drums duo who shot to the stars between 2014 and ‘15. “I got so fidgety in the same place, really anxious. You’re hanging out with your mates in the pub and it’s really good to see them but you’re staring off like you just had the weirdest dream ever.”

The ultimate rock dream, in fact. When, at the start of 2013, Mike returned from nine months of travelling, and reunited with his old drummer mate Ben Thatcher in the car home from the airport, the pair could have no idea what awaited them.

After a year of honing their sound, built around Mike’s unique doctoring of his bass guitar to sound like an entire band of dark, blues-chewing desert rock psychopaths, they found themselves with Arctic Monkeys’ management (and their t-shirt on drummer Matt Helders’ chest at Glastonbury 2013), a major label deal and a spot as the only rock band on the BBC Sound Of 2014 list. As their gargantuan early singles – ‘Out Of The Black’, ‘Little Monster’, ‘Come On Over’, ‘Figure It Out’ - gained traction and acclaim in the UK, they struck out to America. “We spent most of our time over there, slowly going away at it,” says Mike. “We’d just done the Finsbury Park support with the Arctic Monkeys and it was like day one in America for us. It was back to twenty people in the room, there’s a leak in the ceiling, there’s a guy with an American flag tattoo, we’re in the middle of nowhere. I remember thinking ‘fuck, we’ve got to start again and this country is fucking huge’.”

They can laugh about the time they left Mike behind in a New Jersey gas station now, but at the time America was terrifying. Then the numbers got big, fast. Their self-titled debut album, released in August 2014, was the fastest-selling British rock debut in three years, hitting Number One in the UK and going Top Twenty in twelve countries, including the US. Before they knew it they were singing for Howard Stern (“our record was probably number 300 in the iTunes chart and about two minutes after our Howard Stern interview it was Number Three - playing on that show is like doing a thousand tours”), holding dressing room audiences with Jimmy Page in New York and being presented with a Best British Band Brit in 2015 by the very same guitar god.

“The Brits was definitely a big moment,” says Ben. “That was the first arena we played, the O2.”

“Before, I felt we were climbing a ladder and being successful in our world, in the rock world,” Mike recalls, “so when we were selling out these little shows and we felt it growing it was like ‘cool, but this is in this world’, but with The Brits it was like ‘this is everyone’. It’s pop, it’s a very broad show, lots of people would tune in and probably see us who would never have known what we were. We definitely felt like we were in front of the unconverted.”

By the end of 2015, Royal Blood had – in debut album terms – pretty much conquered the world. They’d played stadiums with Foo Fighters and sold out their own theatre tours deep into the US heartlands. “It was all pretty full-on and florescent and exciting,” Mike remembers. “At the time we had no clarity on what was going on. It’s like when you put a frog in water and slowly boil it, it’ll just die, it won’t know the temperature is changing. We were the frog in the water and it was raging. We were just in survival mode; every gig was getting slightly bigger, we were doing everything for the first time. There was no end goal even, it was like ‘when’s this tour going to stop?’ It was like this ramp that was getting steeper and steeper and steeper. There wasn’t any low, it was very exciting. We’ll never have that experience again.”

“It was like getting in a car and putting your foot down and not knowing when you’re going to stop,” Ben adds.

So when the time came for the tour to end and the pair to take a projected couple of months off before starting work on writing their second album, the world just seemed to keep spinning. “At that time I was so into it that I didn’t want to stop, we wanted to do the next album,” says Ben, and Mike agrees. “The idea of stopping was weird and scary because that was reality now. That’s my one regret.”

Despite the intense touring adding an unpredictable kinetic energy and clairvoyance to their captivating live chemistry, what Mike calls a “swag” to their sound and a tighter bond to their friendship – “Part of our survival mode is keeping each other warm emotionally in the cave,” Mike explains – once writing began back in Brighton in November 2015 they initially struggled to conjure a fresh new strain of their music. “We were still on the road,” Mike says. “The thing we learnt was it’s healthier to divide those two worlds because they are so different. Being creative and writing is dreamworld and the more it can be dreamworld the more creative it can be and the more limitless and fun and imaginative it can be. Touring is very much like cold reality, there’s a real work ethic and responsibility to it. I find it very difficult to go between the two. So we’d come up with a few ideas but it felt like we were still in the world of the first album because we were still in the live mindset. So everything we wrote, it wasn’t bad but it was of the same era.”

When seeking new horizons, take to the skies. After experimenting with new ways of writing songs in Brighton – sometimes working separately for the first time, sometimes building tracks from the drums up, always trying to explore ways of stripping their enormous sound back to give it more space and impact to “take people’s heads off” - Ben and Mike spent 2016 visiting new friends in America for their writing sessions because, Ben explains, “it felt exciting to keep it moving… subconsciously, we weren’t very comfortable staying still.” They made several trips out to the studio in Burbank in Hollywood where they’d previously written their first second-album song ‘Hook, Line And Sinker’ (premiered live at Reading & Leeds 2015), and then hit Nashville for some further sessions. They focussed, by necessity, on filling in gaps.

“Every song for us is like a live weapon,” says Mike. “On our first album we know that all of these songs do a certain thing live, they have a certain character, but we have a lot of key set moments missing. We never have a moment where it chills at all, and there’s no way we can do this for an hour and a half or two hours, it’ll just be dynamic-less. So we need a song that does that, so let’s explore that. We also need a song that goes even more ballistic than anything we’ve done. That made every song have a character.” They even allowed a smattering of effects to invade their strict drum/bass dynamic, dropping submarine pings over the monstrous groove of ‘Lights Out’ and tempering the riff firestorms of ‘Hole In Your Heart’ with some Doors-like Fender Bass Rhodes keyboard. “That was probably a subconscious thing,” Mike muses, “it’d be cool to have a moment where I’m not on the bass and something changes.”

Ben grins. “Everyone will know what song that is when the keyboard rolls out.”

A few comedy misadventures later, they returned with ten sensational new tracks falling firmly into place. Besides the lyrics. The sour, visceral and vengeful romantic anguish that had fuelled Mike’s writing on the debut had dried up in the face of global success. “It was strange after the first one, which was very much about a singular relationship,” Mike admits. “We went out and toured it and our lives changed. It was amazing, I had a very good life and nothing to say or write about. Writing about love and relationships is what comes naturally to me as a songwriter. So I didn’t know what to write about, I was in a relationship and fairly content. I was trying to make stuff up, which I swore I’d never do, trying to write about things I didn’t really care about.”

Then, bingo: heartbreak. “My relationship fell apart and basically that was when I was like ‘I know what this record’s going to be about’. I went through a break-up and then we went into the studio. There were songs I’d written while still in this relationship where I didn’t quite know what the lyrics meant. When I look back at them now it’s almost like therapy. You can see what’s going on in what seemed quite cryptic at the time.”

So, come November 2016 Ben and Mike, along with producer Jolyon Thomas, decamped to an “insane” studio in Brussels decked out like a New York diner and featuring a warehouse of antique gear that was “almost like where Bond and Q have their meetings”, and spent six weeks making a chronological ten-track open diary of Mike’s splintering love life. From the first nagging suspicions that cracks are beginning to appear (‘She’s Creeping’, a devil-on-the-dancefloor tune about “where you realise something’s going wrong because you’re thinking about someone else”), the album goes on to dissect the lies that we tell ourselves to shore up the façade (sinuous blues groover ‘I Only Lie’), the inevitable dulling of the initial flame (‘Hole In Your Heart’) and finally reaches a point where “something so brilliant and beautiful and fun and life-changing and amazing” has become “something so horrid that you wish you’d never experienced the good thing in the first place to get to here” (‘Dark’).

“I’ve definitely been honest,” Mike admits. “Where I could have said something that sounded really cool and badass, I went for the vulnerable line. I know people have been through all the experiences I’m talking about.”

Six weeks of cabin fever creativity so intense that Mike could barely sleep for “buzzing from the tunes”, one further session in London with their first album co-producer Tom Dalgety, and Royal Blood emerged with ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’, a second album that finds them squaring up to Queens Of The Stone Age and Muse in terms of sheer melodic might while refining and expanding the mystical two-man voodoo that will keep Royal Blood at the very forefront of millennial UK rock music.

“This one spreads the cards out a little bit,” says Mike. “The first one established our sound, this one goes to places we haven’t been before, in lots of different directions, but it all still very much sounds like us, I don’t think we’ve abandoned what’s good about us, that was the main focus. It’s all about playing with our tools, sharpening them, refining what’s good about us.”

And as they get back on the ride for another go, this time set to rocket around arenas, they’re determined to maintain the up-close ferocity that always made them such a magnetic spectacle. “As long as the emphasis of the show is around me and Ben playing together and our chemistry, and it isn’t about some fucking cannon going off,” says Mike. “It’s almost like the record is an advert for the show. We want it to feel as real and intimate as possible, no matter how big the gigs are gonna be.”

Hold tight, Royal Blood are about to pump faster.

The resurgent Guns N' Roses and their massively successful Not In This Lifetime Tour continue to show no signs of slowing down as the legendary band storms into 2017 with more than 30 stadium shows lined up across Europe and North America. Starting on 27 May 2017 at Dublin’s Slane Castle, the Live Nation produced tour will then steamroll into 18 more cities across the UK and Europe including shows scheduled in London, Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Copenhagen and more. Following the European leg of the tour, the acclaimed band will once again return to North America for even more stadium dates starting on 27 July at the Dome At America’s Center in St. Louis, MO and then move along to 15 more cities across the US and Canada including Denver, Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal, Minneapolis, Miami and more. Tickets go on sale beginning Friday 9 December in Canada and Europe, and Saturday 10 December in the United States.



The Not In This Lifetime Tour has sold over 2 million tickets throughout 2016 to become the year’s most successful rock tour proving beyond a doubt that the attitude, spirit and influence of both Guns N’ Roses and the rock & roll genre are as strong as ever. The history-making Not In This Lifetime Tour, which visited 21 cities (25 shows) in less than 2 months, wrapped the first North America leg last summer before setting its eyes on South America. In South America, the band completely sold out all 15 dates of the tour including 13 stadium dates.



As part of the Not In This Lifetime Tour tour, Guns N’ Roses have partnered with American Express Invites® who are offering all American Express Cardmembers access to purchase tickets for select dates before the general onsale for the Canadian leg. Cardmembers can access the presale on Tuesday, December 6.



Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivalled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe. Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).

Queens Of The Stone Age
IT CAME FROM THE DESERT.

WHAT "IT" WAS, EXACTLY, IS STILL A MATTER OF DEBATE. ARE QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE A BAND? AN ASSOCIATION? A CONCEPT? THE INTERMITTENT ISSUE OF AN UNHINGED CARLO VON SEXRON? THE TOXIC BYPRODUCT OF OTHER BANDS? A VARIOUSLY SHRINKING AND EXPANDING GROUP OF FRIENDS AND LIKEMINDED VISITORS? OR A SECRET SOCIETY?

WHATEVER KIND OF STRANGE AND TERRIBLE MUTATION SLOUCHED OUT OF THE IRRADIATED CALIFORNIA WASTELAND IN 1996, IT'S EVIDENTLY STILL AROUND. IT LIVES. IT BREATHES. IT CAN'T BE STOPPED.

...LIKE CLOCKWORK IS THE FIRST QOTSA ALBUM SINCE 2007'S ERA VULGARIS AND, ACCORDING TO ITS FOUNDER AND ONLY IDENTIFIABLE CONSTANT, JOSH HOMME, " ...LIKE CLOCKWORK' WAS THE ONLY THING THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN."

AFTER A LOT OF "PERSONAL UPS AND DOWNS', A "MANIC YEAR", HOMME AND THE CURRENT ITERATION OF THE QUEENS--VETERAN TROY VAN LEEUWEN, MICHAEL SHUMAN AND DEAN FERTITA--ALONG WITH THE OUTGOING JOEY CASTILLO AND RETURNING ASSOCIATE DAVE GROHL, WOULD DECIDE TO EMBRACE THE BEAST, "RIDE SHOTGUN ON OUR EMOTIONAL BANDWAGON...HOLD THE HORRIBLE, LICK THE LUNACY" AND, INSTEAD OF SHYING AWAY FROM UNCOMFORTABLE OR PAINFUL SUBJECT MATTER-FACE IT HEAD-ON. ALONG THE WAY, THEY PICKED UP KNOWN ASSOCIATES MARK LANEGAN, NICK OLIVERI , JON THEODORE (NOW DRUMMING FULL-TIME IN THE CURRENT LIVE INCARNATION), SIR ELTON JOHN, TRENT REZNOR, ALEX TURNER AND JAKE SHEARS.

"I'M USUALLY (A GUY WHO) WOULD SPIT ON THE FLOOR AND SAY ‘LET'S GO'", SAYS HOMME. "I'VE ALWAYS PLAYED MY WAY OUT OF TROUBLE... PEOPLE USUALLY TRY AND RUN FROM CHAOS. BUT THIS TIME, WHEREVER IT WAS MOST UNCOMFORTABLE, THAT'S WHERE I DECIDED TO GO."

NO PRESSURE.

HOWEVER HIGHLY PREVIOUS QOTSA RELEASES HAVE BEEN PRAISED, HOMME HAS CONSISTENTLY DEMONSTRATED A BUSINESS PLAN OF NOT GIVING A SHIT. "THE ONLY PRESSURE IS (MAKING SURE THAT) IT WON'T BE THE SAME AS THE ONE BEFORE."

" I'M NOT TRYING TO GET SOMEWHERE," SAYS HOMME. " THIS IS A DOCUMENT. FOR EVERYTHING THAT WENT WRONG, SOMETHING WENT RIGHT. ONE DAY YOU'RE PARTING WAYS WITH YOUR DRUMMER OF TEN YEARS-THE NEXT DAY, ELTON JOHN SHOWS UP."

WHATEVER HAPPENED-OUT THERE, IN WHATEVER DESERT ARROYO, FORMER METH LAB, DECOMMISSIONED MISSILE SILO, NUCLEAR TEST SITE, UNDERGROUND LABORATORY, CONVERGENCE OF BRAIN WAVES AND GAMMA RAYS, QOTSA EMERGES WITH NOT ONLY THEIR BEST WORK TO DATE, BUT ONE OF THE MOST AMBITIOUS, FULLY REALIZED ROCK ALBUMS IN RECENT MEMORY.

- ANTHONY BOURDAIN

Royal Blood
Royal Blood is a British rock duo band originally formed in Brighton in 2012. The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in modern garage rock and blues rock.

The band, composed of bassist/singer Mike Kerr (formerly of Hunting the Minotaur) and drummer Ben Thatcher, was formed in Worthing in 2013, and played their first gig a mere two days after Kerr's return to England from his "working holiday" in Australia. During the summer of 2013, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders was seen wearing a shirt supporting the band (before the release of their first single) during their Glastonbury Festival concert in July. On 11 November 2013, the duo released their debut single, "Out of the Black", which came with a B-side called "Come On Over".

In November 2013 it was announced that Royal Blood would be supporting Arctic Monkeys for two Finsbury Park shows in May 2014. In December 2013 Royal Blood were nominated for the BBC Sound of 2014.

Royal Blood released their second single, "Little Monster", on 11 February 2014. The band also released a four-track EP, featuring "Out of the Black", "Little Monster", "Come On Over" and "Hole" on 11 March 2014 in North America. Their debut album, Royal Blood, was released on 25 August 2014.

Formed from the ashes of stoner rock icons Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age reunited the group's singer/guitarist Josh Homme, drummer Alfredo Hernandez, and bassist Nick Oliveri along with new guitarist/keyboardist Dave Catching. After rechristening the group Queens of the Stone Age, Homme recruited Hernandez to begin work on their self-titled debut LP, issued in late 1998 on Loosegroove; after the album was completed, Oliveri left the Dwarves to rejoin his former bandmates, with the subsequent addition of Catching rounding out the roster.

In mid-2000, Queens of the Stone Age issued their sophomore album, Rated R, before appearing on that year's Ozzfest tour. By that point, drummer Hernandez had been replaced by a tag-team combo of Gene Troutman and Nicky Lucero. The group built a healthy buzz courtesy of accolades from such renowned publications as Rolling Stone, and due to good old-fashioned touring. The same year, Homme and Oliveri put together yet another volume of the Desert Sessions series, while QOTSA assembled a third studio album. One of the year's most eagerly anticipated hard rock albums, Songs for the Deaf was issued in August 2002 and was preceded by a tour that saw Oliveri and Homme joined by Grohl on drums, ex-Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan, and A Perfect Circle guitarist/keyboardist Troy Van Leeuwen. When QOTSA reconvened for the March 2005 LP Lullabies to Paralyze, the lineup featured Homme, Joey Castillo, Alain Johannes, Van Leeuwan, and Lanegan. The Over the Years and Through the Woods CD/DVD appeared in November that same year. It featured live material from the band's tour for Lullabies, but also included rare and archival Queens footage. In 2007, the band (Lanegan at this point was only a guest) released the excellent Era Vulgaris, which also included contributions from the Strokes' Julian Casablancas, among others.

Era Vulgaris wrapped up QOTSA's contract with Interscope and the group went into a period of inactivity as Homme pursued other projects over the next few years. The next year saw a deluxe reissue of Rated R and then in 2011, the band reissued their hard-to-find debut and did a small supporting tour behind this deluxe edition. QOTSA began recording a new album in 2012, bringing Grohl back into the fold and also finding spots for Mark Lanegan, Trent Reznor, Jake Shears, and Elton John, as well as Nick Oliveri. Queens of the Stone Age signed with Matador in 2013 and the ...Like Clockwork album was released in June of that year.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Après avoir été LE groupe anglais qui a explosé en 2014 avec leur premier album éponyme, Royal Blood sortiront leur très attendu second album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ le 16 juin 2017.

Le succès de Royal Blood a tout de suite été immense. Leur premier album a été l’album de rock anglais à se vendre le plus rapidement en trois ans, étant numéro 1 en Grande Bretagne, atteignant le top 20 dans douze pays et se vendant à plus d’un million d’exemplaires. En moins de deux, ils jouaient pour Howard Stern, tournaient avec Foo Fighters, discutaient en loges avec Jimmy Page à New York, et recevaient le BRIT AWARD du Meilleur Groupe Britannique en 2015 par ce même dieu de la guitare. Leur ascension était ensuite soulignée par d’autres récompenses majeures de la part de Kerrang!, NME et Q.

Les dix titres qui figurent sur ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ ont été écrits sous une forme instrumentale lors de sessions à Brighton, Hollywood, Los Angeles et Nashville. Essayant sans cesse d’explorer des façons de mettre à nu leur énorme son pour lui donner plus de place et d’impact, l’inspiration pour les paroles est venue d’événements de la vie du chanteur/bassiste Mike Kerr’s depuis que le groupe a trouvé cet immense succès.

En Novembre 2016, Kerr et le batteur Ben Thatcher, accompagnés du producteur Jolyon Thomas, ont passé six semaines dans un studio à Bruxelles qui était décoré comme un diner de New York et possédait un entrepôt de matériel antique. ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ a par la suite été terminé après une dernière session à Londres avec le co-producteur de leur premier album, Tom Dalgety.

‘Lights Out’, le premier single de l’album, monte la mise de leur premier album avec un groove renversant consolidé par les rythmes tonitruants de Thatcher, pendant que Kerr tord ses riffs de basse à un niveau jamais atteint. Leur artillerie d’agression mélodique construite avec attention prévaut à travers tout l’album en particulier dans ‘I Only Lie When I Love You’ qui est un rappel percutant de la puissance d’un riff stop-start et d’un refrain strident. Ils y a des moments où Royal Blood sont plus viscéraux que jamais, notamment sur l’introduction gargantuesque de ‘Hook, Line & Sinker’ et aussi sur l’intense dénouement qui clôt ‘Looks Like You Know’.

Alors que l’album voit Royal Blood affiner leur puissance mélodique, il y a d’autres moments qui atteignent leur but de créer des chansons qui ajouteront une nouvelle dimension à leurs concerts. Ornée du falsetto de Kerr, ‘Don’t Tell’ baisse l’intensité pour un effet hypnotisant, tandis que ‘Where Are You Now?’ vibre d’une énergie attachante qui s’éloigne sacrément de tout le reste de leur catalogue. La palette de Royal Blood est aussi élargie avec l’ajout complémentaire d’un piano ou de claviers sur quatre chansons, dont la menaçante ‘Sleep’ sur laquelle l’album s’achève.

Ze zijn maar met z’n tweetjes, maar samen weten ze een massieve muur van geluid te creëren met enkel een basgitaar, een drumstel en een paar flinke versterkers. Onlangs bracht Royal Blood de eerste song ‘Lights Out’ van het aankomende album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?‘ uit en dat belooft veel goeds! Verwacht lekkere oldschool riffs, catchy refreinen en bridges waar de Van Brienenoordbrug ‘U’ tegen zegt.
