Royal Blood Score Fastest-Selling Rock Debut in Three Years
Young British rockers Royal Blood have officially scored the fastest-selling rock debut album in three years with their August 25 self-titled release.

As NME reports, the record sold 66,000 units during the first week, quite a feat for a young act these days.

According to the official info, "Royal Blood" marked the fastest-selling debut since 2011 and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' self-titled record.

The band opened for Arctic Monkeys during their Finsbury Park shows this May and have also rocked Glastonbury and Reading Festival, so things are looking pretty bright for Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher. Make sure to give their latest video single "Figure It Out" a spin or two below. Order the album here.
