Royal Blood in Vancouver. at ALLIANCE lockhart, we wanted to share the news that Royal Blood will perform Tuesday: August 8, 2017 at the Commodore Ballroom - Vancouver, BC.
There are meteoric rises, and then there are the kind of success stories that Royal Blood can lay claim to. They only started playing music together in early 2013, but began to pick up a head of steam after playing just a handful of shows; in June of that year, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders - who has form on this front - wore one of the band’s shirts onstage during their Glastonbury headline performance, before the pair had even released a single. Later that year, they confirmed that they’d support the Sheffield titans in London the following year, and also dropped a debut single, ‘Out of the Black’.

Their second single, ‘Little Monster’, as well as the B-side form their first, ‘Come On Over’, generated considerable hype in early 2014, but it was a slew of high-profile festival slots at the likes of T in the Park, Reading and Leeds and Radio 1’s Big Weekend that propelled them to the success they’d taste later in the year; their self-titled debut, released in late August 2014, smashed sales records, becoming the fastest-selling British debut rock album in three years. The pair will be on the road in support of it for the foreseeable future.
