UK rock duo Royal Blood will make their way back to our shores, touring across Australia and New Zealand in December.
Joining the British lads will be Psychedelic P*rn Crumpets and The Buoys on all Australian shows plus Racing and Elliot & Vincent in Auckland.
Last here in Australia & New Zealand in 2018 playing sold-out crowds across both countries, Royal Blood – Mike Kerr & Ben Thatcher - are returning fresh off the back of an extensive tour run across Europe & the US as well as new music, having just released their latest album Back To The Water Below, out now via Warner Music Australia. Featuring the singles ‘Mountains At Midnight’, ‘Pull Me Through’ and new track, ‘Shiner In The Dark’, Back To The Water Below follow three previous consecutive UK #1 albums from the British Duo.
“This fourth album branches out to include considerable light and shade, with the expansive-but-tothe-point feel of Smashing Pumpkins’ Gish, or even Led Zeppelin III… top drawer tunes throughout.’’ – MOJO ★★★★
The duo's self-produced new album sees them tap back into the undeniable chemistry that they made their name on. ‘Back To The Water Below’ feels like a return for Royal Blood - NME ★★★★
Their breakout year in 2014 including a debut Glastonbury, SXSW and Radio 1’s Big Weekend slot saw the band soar into notoriety. Releasing their debut album Royal Blood that same year, the critically acclaimed project became their defining moment, being crowned as the fastest selling British rock debut in three years, with huge tracks ‘Figure It Out’ and ‘Out of the Black’ remaining fan favourites almost 10 years on.
Touring across the UK & US the band won a Brit Award in 2015 for Best British Band, which catapulted them onto the world stage, touring with Foo Fighters and performing huge festival sets across the world including Coachella, Fuji Rock and Australia’s own Laneway.
With a consecutive No.1 for second album How Did We Get So Dark, Royal Blood’s signature sound was well and truly cemented, with NME calling the project “10 shamelessly melodic rock monsters that hit home like a nail gun to the eardrum”.
Touring with the likes of The Killers, Pearl Jam and Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood began touring the world in their own right, playing sold out shows and festival sets worldwide. Due to embark on an extensive tour of the UK & US from September-November, the duo will be fired up to perform to their biggest fans in Australia and New Zealand this December.
Auckland-band four-piece, RACING, take rock and roll and inject it with a chemical haze so potent the listener is left both pleased and punished. Once likened to “the thoughts of a crocodile in flood season”, the band crafts a swirling sea of groove and hypnosis into rock anthems drenched in weird tropical dance music. Releasing their debut album Real Dancing in 2019, the band were subsequently nominated for Best Rock Artist at the 2019 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards. Having shared the stage on tour with Oasis, REM, The Hives, AC/DC, The Killers & Muse, Racing – Ed Knowles (vocals), Sven Pettersen (guitar), Daniel Barrett (bass) & Izaak Houston (drums) - are stepping up onto the international music radar. Having released their sophomore album Must Be The Moon in 2022, the project received critical acclaim and saw the band perform nationwide on their headline tour to an evergrowing fanbase.
ELLIOT & VINCENT Equipped with a Japanese lawsuit guitar and a Tom heavy drum style, Elliot & Vincent are an Auckland based two-piece band featuring drummer and vocalist Elliot Finn and guitarist Vincent Cherry. Together, they fill the space in each others sound to form driving rhythms with distorted strain.
The sound of Royal Blood isn’t defined by genre or the instruments that they play, but by the unique chemistry forged by the two friends. The incredible live spectacle that is Royal Blood will grace our stages once again in a series of unmissable shows.
