Royal Blood have announced they will release their self titled debut album, August 25th. The Brighton, England based two-piece band (Mike Kerr on vocals/bass and Ben Thatcher on drums) make far too much noise for just two guys, and Kerr's bass work is legendary. The sounds he's coaxing out of that bass are unreal. When I first heard the band earlier this year, I immediately thought of Badmotorfinger era Soundgarden. Perhaps that's a lofty comparison, but the band has been attracting attention from many big name bands.
