  • Royal Blood – Brighton Centre – 29th November 2017

    Royal Blood - Brighton Centre - 29th November 2017 Royal Blood – Brighton Centre – 29th November 2017 There was no place like home for Royal Blood as they ended a hugely successful tour with a blistering show at the Brighton Centre. It is unlikely that any tour in 2017 has been able to boast a line-up like the three bands on display tonight, and they all put on masterful performances starting with fellow locals Black Honey. Similarly to Royal Blood, these last few weeks have had the air of a promotion parade for the spiky four-piece and it felt like an emotional night for them.

  • Royal Blood - Interview - 2017

    Royal Blood - Interview - 2017 Royal Blood – Interview - 2017 Fun. That is what it's supposed to be, is it not? Being in a band as a young adult. Meeting new people, going to new places, playing music because you just damn well enjoy doing that? And you know what? People can smell that. They often have a good sense of what is real, and what is not. Being able to tell the difference between what is too earnest, and what is just having a bit of a laugh. Even the most muso lunatics such as Yes or Gentle Giant were having a laugh back in the days of bombastic prog-rock. Even the most epic and earnest sounding like Radiohead, are just having a bit of a...

  • Royal Blood – Concorde 2 – 24th April 2017

    Royal Blood – Concorde 2 – 24th April 2017 Royal Blood – Concorde 2 – 24th April 2017 My Monday started at 6.30am. In a groggy naive fog I was expecting a mild turn out at Resident Records at this time. I was wrong. Stricken with a mild morning panic there was much doubt if I’d even get a ticket for the show. I walked past the shop, past some eager rough sleepers, round the corner and found myself thinking “..shit” on the parallel street. However a very thoughtful move from promoters One Inch Badge, ensured they came round the queue awarding people with wristbands to confirm that we had indeed secured a ticket.

  • Royal Blood - Brighton Dome - 20th December 2014

    Royal Blood Royal Blood - Brighton Dome - 20th December 2014 With recourse to stating the bleedin' obvious, the dynamic duo have done good, haven't they? From nowhere to everywhere in less than two years, it's a very rare story of almost instant success and acclaim that could not have being predicted.

  • Royal Blood - Interview - 2014

    Royal Blood - Interview - 2014 Royal Blood, eh? Where did they come from? From nowhere (well, at a tiny Brighton venue in Feb 2013, sandwiched on a bill of 5 indie-rock hopefuls), to making the BBC Sound Poll 2014, to high up the bill at Reading and elsewhere with support slots with friends Arctic Monkeys at Finsbury Park under their belts, a Later… with Jools Holland scene stealing performance, a worldwide tour in motion and a UK leg in November to look forward to. With their tasteful truckers and beards look, bludgeoning riffing and Bonhamesque meets Dave Grohl drumming, the suitably monikered Royal Blood have been a breathe of fresh air, an air raid siren amidst the saturated landscape of singer songwriters and electro pop acts. There are times - and they are...
  • The Great Escape - 2014

    The Great Escape 2014 The Great Escape Festival 2014 It’s a remarkable beast, this three-day showcase of new music from around the globe. Music lovers descend upon Brighton in their thousands (approximately 15000+), slap bang in the middle of the month-long arts and culture feasts that are the venerable Brighton Festival and England’s largest open access fringe, Brighton Fringe Festival. In fact, The Great Escape takes over to such an extent that the aforementioned festivals practically stop in their tracks, as if waiting for a passing train that cannot stop, such is its power and momentum. Occasionally, you come across a culture vulture who bemoans this interloper, but all-in-all it’s a brilliant addition to what is a veritable playground of arts and cultural entertainment in the month of...

  • Royal Blood – Little Monster

    Royal Blood – Little Monster I first heard of Royal Blood when they were named on the longlist for 'BBC Sound of 2014' last December. “Sound of...” is a poll of critics and music industry figures aimed at rooting out promising new talents and Royal Blood ended up being the only band on this years list. Even then I wasn't quick to jump on the bandwagon at first because I was...
