Royal Blood are an English rock duo formed in Brighton in 2013. The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in blues rock and hard rock. Royal Blood consists of only two members, bass player Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher. Their self-titled debut album was released in August 2014 and their second album, How Did We Get So Dark? followed in June 2017.
The pair are from West Sussex: Kerr grew up in Worthing, while Thatcher is from Rustington. They first met around 2005 when they were teenagers, and for a brief period they were part of the same four-piece band called Flavour Country in which Kerr played keyboards and the keytar.
