Of Empires: 'Royal Blood Put Rock Back On The Map'
MTV Brand New For 2015 Unsigned winners Of Empires have praised rockers Royal Blood telling us they "deserve everything" that comes their way from BRIT Awards nominations to their Mercury Music Prize nod.Lead singer Jack of the foursome who stopped by MTV the other week to record their very own live session said: "They deserve everything that they get at the moment and like a lot of people are saying they're bringing back rock and roll and bringing it into the mainstream again.
"I think that is right that everyone's saying that and they've definitely put rock back on the map and brought it into the charts."
Of Empires formed in Guernsey but spend a lot of their time in Brighton, coincidentally where Royal Blood rose to prominence.
"It's an inspiration for all our rock bands, all rock bands all over the country, especially British rock bands," Jack continued.
"There's a real sort of energy going on in Brighton at the moment because of Royal Blood and it's inspired a lot of Brighton bands I think to show that you can do it."
