Royal Blood drew a huge crowd to the NME/BBC Radio 1 tent at their Reading Festival show this afternoon (August 23).

The Brighton duo began their set at 2:25pm, previewing material from their self-titled debut album during it. The record is due out on Monday (August 25).

Although they spoke little to the audience throughout their half hour performance, tracks including 'Come On Over' and 'Figure It Out' were deployed early on, with both garnering huge singalongs from the crowd.

Recent single 'Little Monster' was another favourite, and saw sections of the audience form circle pits, with singer Mike Kerr commenting after: "I can't tell you what it means to see so many fucking people here!"

The band ended their set with a frenetic version of debut single 'Out Of The Black', before drummer Ben Thatcher downed his sticks and jumped into the front row. Shortly after, he returned to his kit for a final burst of the track before the duo exited the stage.

Royal Blood played:

'Hole'
'Come On Over'
'Figure It Out'
'You Can Be So Cruel'
'Little Monster'
'Ten Tonne Skeleton'
'Loose Change'
'Out Of The Black'
