Royal Blood Perform "Figure It Out" on 'Late Late Show With James Corden'
When searching for an American late night show to showcase Royal Blood's hard rock talents, the duo landed with fellow UK native James Corden for a rambunctious performance of "Figure It Out" on the Late Late Show.
The British rock duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher tore through a blistering performance on the show last night, showing everyone what their band is all about in one session of head banging, sludge bass and pounding drums.
Royal Blood's self-titled 2014 debut was highly praised among critics and landed the group a number of festival performances as well as an opening gig with the Foo Fighters along several dates in Europe, Canada and the U.S., according to Consequence of Sound.
The red and blue lights provided the perfect backdrop for the duo as Kerr filled the room with a massive sound emanating from a simple four-string bass accompanied by the thrashing drums of Thatcher.
At just 32 minutes in length, the album is a quick and vicious listen as the band draws from the heavy blues-rock of Led Zeppelin, Cream and Black Sabbath. They also draw on modern heavy rock influences such as Queens of the Stone Age, Band of Skulls and fellow bass and drum duo Death From Above 1979.
Royal Blood have been nominated for two MTV European Music Awards for the categories of Best Rock and Best Push. The awards are held in Milan, Italy on October 25. Voting continues through until the day before the award show, and you can cast your ballot for the band here.
The band has been on a long tour through the U.S. that is just about to close out following a handful of dates including two weekends at Austin City Limits. Check out the full list of dates over at Royal Blood's website.
