Royal Blood Announce U.S. Headlining Tour + Support Dates for the Pixies

After a triumphant U.S. visit last month (watch the highlight video above) that included sold-out shows in New York and Los Angeles, their U.S. television debut on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and meeting the legendary Jimmy Page, the U.K. duo Royal Blood are returning to North America for more tour dates.

They kick of a headlining tour July 15 in Charlotte, N.C., and will also play Lollapalooza on Aug. 1. Royal Blood have support dates with Arctic Monkeys and Portugal, as well. Then beginning Sept. 27 in San Diego they embark on a North American tour with the Pixies.

In a recent interview with ‘Loudwire Nights’ host Full Metal Jackie, vocalist / bassist Mike Kerr discussed the most creatively satisfying part of playing as a duo.

I guess it would be the limitations, really,” Kerr says. “The decisions can be made very quickly when writing music together, I find. When it’s two of you, it’s quicker and it’s simpler, particularly in our situation where it’s just one instrument and drums and a vocal. You find there’s a lot of freedom to go where you want without much talking. You can be free and just play music together.”
