Royal Blood Premiere “Boilermaker” Video

Royal Blood have premiered a new video for their new song “Boilermaker.” This track is from the band’s new album “Typhoons,” which will be released on April 30. Mike Kerr said the following:

“Boilermaker – a shot of whisky followed immediately by a glass of beer as a chaser. This is written a report from the front line of my own self destruction. Chasing all things toxic no matter how grotesque the combination. However, the marriage of talent involved in its creation was a delicious one. It’s bones discovered in I Know I Know’s bedroom. Produced by the Jedi master Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. A life changing experience we will be forever grateful for. And finally a massive thank you to Liam Lynch for creating such a stone cold masterpiece of a video.”

Royal Blood Premiere New Song “Limbo”

Royal Blood Premiere “Typhoons” Music Video

Royal Blood have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Typhoons.” That effort will be released on April 30. The band previously said the following about the song:

“‘Typhoons’ is what it sounds like to be truly lost in your own thoughts to a hellish extent but also about how dark spells, much like storms are not permanent. This song was one those special moments where the process didn’t resemble writing whatsoever. More like being tethered to the earth, receiving holy lightning. Look after each other and crank this until you see smoke.”

Royal Blood To Release New Album “Typhoons” In April, Release Title Track

Royal Blood have announced that they will be releasing their new album “Typhoons” on April 30. You can check out the effort’s title track below:

The band said the following about the new song:

“‘Typhoons’ is what it sounds like to be truly lost in your own thoughts to a hellish extent but also about how dark spells, much like storms are not permanent. This song was one those special moments where the process didn’t resemble writing whatsoever. More like being tethered to the earth, receiving holy lightning. Look after each other and crank this until you see smoke.”

Mike Kerr also added the following about the new record:

“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play. That’s what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling. It’s weird, though – if you think back to ‘Figure it Out’, it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it. On paper, it’s a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.”

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.”
