Royal Blood Unveil 2015 Headlining North American Dates, Reveal Album B-Sides
Royal Blood have made their presence felt in North America over the past year and are looking to keep the momentum going this spring. The UK band has just announced more headlining shows to go along with their previously announced festival appearances and it all leads into a big summer run where they'll provide support for Foo Fighters.
The trek gets under way April 13 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles and runs through the weekend of June 11-14, when they'll take part in the Bonaroo Festival in Manchester, Tenn. Mini Mansions will provide support on most of Royal Blood's headlining dates. See exactly where the band is playing in the tour dates listed below.
The band will be promoting their self-titled debut disc, which has already spawned the singles 'Out of the Black,' 'Figure It Out' and 'Ten Tonne Skeleton' and earned them plenty of accolades along the way.
In related news, Royal Blood are giving fans a little more music to enjoy by posting four b-sides at their YouTube account. The songs are posted on the site along with information on which songs they're the b-sides for and how to order various versions.
The tracks are 'Hole,' which may be one of the band's heaviest songs to date; 'You Want Me,' a straight-ahead rocker that pushes the tempo; 'Love and Leave It Alone,' a catchy song that has a bit of a swing to it; and 'One Trick Pony,' an aggressive rocker that has a violin-like lick that hooks listeners in. Take a listen to all four songs in the players provided.
