Royal Blood announce NZ & Australia tour

On the cusp of their sold out Sydney show and headline slot at Splendour In The Grass, Royal Blood will be returning to Australia and New Zealand next April and May to play their biggest venues on our shores to date.

The duo commented "Can’t wait to come back over next year and do some bigger shows & get out to places we’ve never played before. We hope you’re enjoying the new album & we’re excited to play you these new songs. Hope to see you there!"

Royal Blood will play six shows – including their first ever shows to Brisbane, Perth and Auckland crowds – in celebration of their acclaimed second album How Did We Get So Dark?.

Forming in Brighton in 2013, Royal Blood’s self-titled first record became the UK’s fastest selling rock debut in three years upon its release in 2014. Hit singles ‘Out of the Black’ and ‘Little Monster’ received widespread praise and earned them a nomination for BBC Sound of 2014, while their glorious track ‘Figure It Out’ has over 15 million views on YouTube and almost 50 million plays on Spotify.

The duo’s follow-up release How Did We Get So Dark? has been quick to follow suit, debuting at #1 on the UK Albums Chart, #4 in the ARIA Album Charts and #6 in the NZ Album Charts. With hit tracks ‘Lights Out’, ‘I Only Lie When I Love You’ and ‘Hook, Line & Sinker’ gaining over 19 million streams collectively since April.

Mike Kerr (bass guitar/vocals) and Ben Thatcher’s (drums) return to Australia and New Zealand follows a series of sold-out tours over the past few years. From their debut shows in May 2014 to today, Royal Blood have solidified themselves as an electrifying live act:
