UK duo Royal Blood will perform their song "Figure It Out" on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday, September 22nd. This will mark the band's fourth late night television performance in support of their self-titled debut album, which was originally released last August on Warner Bros. Records and has gone on to sell over 850,000 copies around the world and reached No. 5 on the Billboard Album Charts. The Late Late Show airs at 12:37am / 11:37am CST on CBS (check local listings).
Royal Blood's blistering summer included a remarkable interview and performance on the Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM, crowd-winning performances at the Sasquatch, Bunbury, Bonnaroo, and Governor's Ball festivals, and arena dates supporting Foo Fighters.

Royal Blood is 24 year-old vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and 27 year-old drummer Ben Thatcher. The duo's sound is a result of a lineage that stretches from present day heroes Queens of the Stone Age to the influential Led Zeppelin, and all the way back to early blues pioneers... yet this huge wall of sound emerges from just two men and two instruments. The band's ferocious approach to the drums and bass have led them to be hailed as one of the most exciting forces in live music. Entertainment Weekly praised the band's "muscle-car riffs and bluesy snarls", while Rolling Stone proclaimed "the band is surely well on its way to becoming a household name." Pitchfork noted the band's "crushing, contorted groove" and "telepathic sense of connectivity". USA Today declared them "the biggest breakouts in rock this year."
