Royal Blood Post Four B-Sides to YouTube + Get Thumbs Up From Jimmy Page
"We posted our B-Sides to our YouTube channel yesterday. Have you had a listen yet?," reads an update from Royal Blood's official Facebook page. The four tracks posted include 'Hole', 'You Want Me', 'Love and Leave It Alone' and 'One Trick Pony.' Check out 'Hole' below.
The duo -- bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher -- formed the band in Brighton, U.K. in 2013 and have been picking up steam following the release of their self-titled debut album last summer. Aside from heading out on a U.K. tour, the band will hit the road for a large batch of shows in the U.S.
"I went to hear them in New York. They were fantastic. Absolutely riveting," Page told NME late last year. "They're such fine musicians. However long the set was, I could have heard twice as much. Their album has taken the genre up a serious few notches. It's so refreshing to hear, because they play with the spirit of the things that have preceded them, but you can hear they're going to take rock into a new realm – if they're not already doing that. It's music of tremendous quality."
