Royal Blood

5 months ago Royal Blood came to the Motor City for the first time and played at The Shelter. I instantly fell in love with the band after hearing their first single "Out of the Black," so I was very excited to see them live for the first time. To this day, that was one of my favorite shows. They just blew the crowd away with their wall of noise. Their sound, stage presence, and performance was just amazing! They came back last night and played a show at St. Andrew's Hall, again blowing the crowd away with an impressive show. Definitely one of the best new bands out there. If you're not sold on the band yet, let some of the world's biggest rock legends tell you how good they are! Royal Blood has received so many compliments from huge artists like Jimmy Page and Dave Grohl. In fact, the band is set to tour with Foo Fighters this summer! That is huge news for a band that just released their first studio album back in August! Anyways, the future looks bright for Royal Blood! I'm excited to continue watching this band's career grow. And also very excited to see them open up for the Foo's!
