Royal Blood Turn the ‘Lights Out’ on ‘The Late Late Show’

British garage rock duo Royal Blood brought an electrifying performance of their single “Lights Out” to The Late Late Show with James Corden last night, just over a week after killing it with a set at Lollapalooza.

The pair, made up of singer and bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher, plowed through the track, one of the highlights from their latest album, How Did We Get So Dark?, which came out back in June.

The band, with the unique feature of having no guitar but a bass with modified pickups, have been the talk of the U.K. rock world since their self-titled debut came out in 2014, garnering high praise from such luminaries as Jimmy Page and earning them spots on tour opening for the likes of Foo Fighters and Guns N’ Roses. Next month, they kick off a tour of North America with Queens of the Stone Age, dates of which can be found here.

“Lights Out” is an infectious number, one that comes even more alive in a performance with the distinctive rumble of Kerr’s bass and Thatcher’s aggressive drumming. When the former pulls out an otherworldly solo, it takes the track to another level. The song originally was released in April of this year, and with it was a video that was equal parts disturbing and fascinating. The clip can be viewed below.
