Royal Blood Hit Number One

Debut album botches up 66,000 sales...
Royal Blood

A titanic live force, Royal Blood have been able to replicate this in the studio.

The band's debut album is a full throttle affair, all feral riffs and unrelenting drums. A sheer frenetic attack from start to finish, it seems that the public agree.

Royal Blood's debut LP has soared into the charts at number one, fighting off competition from all manner of pop hopefuls. The self-titled album sold almost 66,000 copies in only seven days, making it the quickest selling rock album on the UK charts since Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds unleashed their debut LP back in 2011.

It's been a curious rise for the Brighton duo, whose live prowess saw enormous crowds gather for their sets at Glastonbury and Reading / Leeds festival this summer.

Clash caught up with Royal Blood shortly before the hype descended - find the interview in full HERE.
