Royal Blood stormed the main stage at Reading Festival, taking the time to air brand new track 'Hook Line And Sinker'. Watch footage of the track below.

A huge crowd gathered as the rain trickled down, before the band confidently strode on stage for what may well be one of the true defining performances, not only of the weekend - but their career so far. 

"There is not a single person in this field who understands how truly insane it is for us to be up here right now," frontman Mike Kerr told the audience, geeing the crowd up for a blistering outing of 'Little Monster'. "There are a lot of fucking people here - I think I just shat myself."

As well as teasing the crowd with the riff from Black Sabbath's 'Iron Man', a surprising highlight came when the band aired  new track  'Hook Line And Sinker' - a real grunge meets glam-rock stomper with a juddering and thunderous beat that soon blooms into a glorious release with the chorus. If this is a sign of things to come, then things are only going to get more massive for the Brighton duo.
