Royal Blood are also set to headline the Tramlines Festival in Sheffield on 24 July 2021 + the Victorious Festival in Portsmouth on 29 August 2021.
The arena shows will be Mike Kerr (vocals/bass) and Ben Thatcher’s (drums) first full UK tour since 2017, when they sold-out three huge nights at London’s Alexandra Palace.
The duo commented, “Playing live is the DNA and sole purpose of our band. On stage with our fans is where we belong, and we cannot wait for this tour to be a reality!”
Royal Blood’s latest album ‘Typhoons’ dropped earlier this year.
Following three consecutive Hottest Records on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, a further 50 million streams and the biggest North American airplay of their career so far, ‘Typhoons’ marked the start of an exciting new era for the rockers.
The album also scored the pair a hat-track, with all three of their studio albums going straight to No.1 on the UK albums chart.
The streak commenced with their 2014 self-titled debut release followed by 2017s ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’.
They have achieved two million global sales to date as well as received the BRIT Award for Best British Group, two NME Awards and a Kerrang! Award. Furthermore, their debut album was nominated for the coveted Mercury Prize.
Fans who pre-order the new album from the band’s official web store will automatically be sent a code to access to a pre-sale for the summer shows.
