Grunge Diary - An exhibition by Steve Gullick

The underground US rock scene of the late '80s was the crucible for a remarkable outpouring of raw, visceral spirit.

PLEASE NOTE : THE ONLINE ALLOCATION OF WRISTBANDS HAS NOW SOLD OUT.

THERE WILL BE A LIMITED NUMBER OF WRISTBANDS AVAILABLE - FIRST COME FIRST SERVED WITH PURCHASE OF ROYAL BLOOD'S DEBUT ALBUM 'ROYAL BLOOD' FROM MONDAY 25th AUGUST AT ROUGH TRADE EAST.

Royal Blood's remarkable breakthrough year commenced with a BBC Sound of 2014 and has continued with a succession of highlights including shows with Arctic Monkeys at Finsbury Park, a place on the NME Awards tour and a scintillating debut performance on Later... with Jools Holland. The duo announce the August 25th release of their eagerly-anticipated self-titled debut album.

Featuring their two singles to date - 'Little Monster' and 'Come On Over' - the album is a mixture of anguished vocals, ferocious drumming and bass that provides intricate detail as well as a rumble of rhythm. Royal Blood are the result of a lineage that stretches from present day heroes Queens of the Stone Age to Led Zeppelin, and all the way back to early blues pioneers. Their ferocious attack is the result of just two men - vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher.

The album's striking cover art was provided by Dan Hillier, an artist who is acclaimed for his black line work, combining Victorian sensibilities with a fascination for animal and landscape attributes with leanings towards the esoteric.

*** Please note, existing pre-orders for the limited white vinyl edition of this album do NOT guarantee admission to this event - you must pre-order the items linked on this page (regular black vinyl LP or CD, with wristbands). One wristband per purchase.
