Royal Blood live 2015

Royal Blood made a spectacular return to the live stage last night (24 April), with a tiny homecoming show.

The duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher performed their first live show in two years at Brighton’s Concorde 2 - and gave fans a sneak preview of some of their new material. Tickets for the show only went on sale that morning.

Opening with the very first live performance of the track Where Are You Now?, which first appeared on the soundtrack to TV show Vinyl in 2015, the pair followed it up with the latest single Lights Out.

Other new tracks were I Only Lie When I Love You and She’s Creeping, both of which will be released on the band’s second album, How Did We Get So Dark? which drops on Friday 16 June.
