Royal Blood to perform on Conan

UK rockers Royal Blood will perform on TBS’ late night series Conan on Thursday, December 7.

The duo of bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher’s appearance on the program lands during a week that sees them play three US concerts and announce dates for a spring 2018 US tour in support of their latest album, “How Did We Get So Dark?”

Royal Blood will launch a headlining trek in Brooklyn, NY on May 28.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, December 8 at noon EST.

Previewed with the lead single, “Lights Out”, “How Did We Get So Dark?” was recorded in Brussels, Belgium with producer Joylon Thomas and London, UK with co-producer Tom Dalgety.

The group experimented with new sounds and techniques for the follow-up to their smash 2014 self-titled debut.

"One thing we learned,” Kerr tells the BBC, “is we have quite a delicate sound and once you add things - the wrong things - our whole sound sort of shrivels. Or it capsizes and it doesn't sound like us anymore. We've realized a lot of the identity of our music is when me and Ben play together.

"Even the backing vocals - we did try having girls come in and sing, but it just didn't work. It had to be my voice. It had to be just about me and Ben."
