Royal Blood Share "Lights Out," Detail 'How Did We Get So Dark?'
Published Apr 13, 2017After teasing the arrival of a new album earlier this week, English rock duo Royal Blood have lifted the curtain on their sophomore full-length. Titled How Did We Get So Dark?, the record will arrive June 16 through Warner Bros. Records.
Ten tracks in length, How Did We Get So Dark? is said to see vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher refining their "melodic might," in addition to songwriting that will add a new dimension to live performances. A press release also points to an inclusion of vocal harmonies, which were absent on the group's self-titled debut in 2014.
Along with the album announcement, the band have released a first single in "Lights Out," which arrives alongside a video. Directed by the Sacred Egg, the clip finds the band playing in a fairly innocuous-looking room — that is until a host of people swim their way out from the walls and floor. If you thought it couldn't get any weirder in there, wait until the band hit the song's bridge section.
