English rock duo Royal Blood consists of band members Mike Kerr (vocalist, bassist) and Benji Talent (drummer). The two friends started their band last year and Brighton, England. In November of 2013 they released their hit single “Out of the Black.” The song begins with heavy metal guitar followed by Muse sounding vocals, and incorporated with a White Stripes performance. Overall the track is eerie with lyrics like “I got a gun for my mouth and a bullet with your name on it, but a trigger full of heartbeat pulling from an empty pocket.” The band is said to be accompanying Arctic Monkeys at two of their Finsbury Park shows this year. Fans of The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, and The Black Keys should check out Royal Blood.
