Royal Blood Premiere New Song “Trouble’s Coming”

Royal Blood have premiered a new song titled “Trouble’s Coming.” This track is from the band’s upcoming album, which will be released in spring 2021.

Mike Kerr said “Trouble’s Coming” helped set the tone for the new record:

“It was the moment something started to click – where we started playing over these much more rigid dance beats. The breakthrough was realizing there was real common ground between that and what we’d done before. It’s that AC/DC aspect: where the quality that makes the riffs seem so cutting is because of that beat.”

“Although on the surface we were stepping outside what we’d done before, it didn’t feel at all unnatural. It felt like we were returning to music we’d loved from the very beginning: Daft Punk, Justice, things that were groove-oriented. It was all about the beat. It felt like familiar territory, but something we’d censored in ourselves.”

Ben Thatcher added:

“When we first broke out, there were only two elements to the band. I didn’t just have to carry the beat, I’d have to color in the changes. We were both bearing a lot of freight, sonically. But this was a different challenge, less varied maybe, but so satisfying as a drummer.”
