If you missed UK thunderous duo Royal Blood’s recent performance on Conan, you can still watch a clip of the band performing “Figure It Out” here.
The guys seemed to be in a partying spirit for the late-night stop, as bassist/singer Mike Kerr wore big sunglasses and drummer Ben Thatcher inexplicably donned a blonde wig.
But despite the accoutrements, Royal Blood delivered more of the thunderous rock they’ve become known for over the past year.
Check it out in the video below.

Reverend Horton Heat brought a rockabilly revival to the Mojave Tent on Friday afternoon during Coachella.
The Jim Heath-led trio banged through several of their signature tunes to the delight of a packed house that included fans of all ages. Heath, looking resplendent in a red sport coat with blue flames, seemed to relish every moment of it, feverishly working the fretboard of his signature Gretsch guitar (with his name emblazoned on the black pickguard, no less).
In fact, the energy was so high that a circle pit broke out in the middle of the tent when a few young fans got riled up for “Psychobilly Freakout.” All in all, it was a great way to kick off the festival’s first day.

Fall Out Boy helped ignite the opening night of the 2015 Major League Baseball season on Sunday with an on-field, three song set prior to the Chicago Cubs game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field.
It was a natural fit for the band, whose members grew up in the suburbs of Chicago.
“Wrigley Field has always been a magical place to me,” said bassist Pete Wentz. “In some ways I can chart milestones of my life and growing up there —from going to see Andre Dawson and Ryne Sandberg play, to going with the my dad to the one of the first night games they ever had there, to the first time I took the ‘EL’ there on my own for a game with my friends. When our band all lived in an apartment together in Roscoe Village, we used to pass out flyers for shows at the Metro after games. It has been a lifetime dream to get the chance to play at Wrigley Field. We are grateful to MLB for the opportunity and so excited to perform for our hometown crowd.”
Watch the band perform platinum hit “Centuries” on opening day below.
