So then, after a bunch of teasing about it and giving a cheeky insight into what’s been going on in the studio, Brighton troublesome twosome Royal Blood have finally announced their new album!
‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ is out on 16th June and was announced with a teaser clip featuring a reverberating, heavy guitar riff and a whole lotta clashing drums. So, Royal Blood at their best then. The clip also shows off two artists painting a picture of two women seated at a table (looking kind of pensive, it must be said) on a giant white wall. Album artwork, perhaps?
The duo are set to play the Eden Sessions on 22nd June, where they’ll get to give the new alum a proper airing, and they’re off to Bilbao BBK, Rock Werchter and NOS Alive this year too.
Watch the trailer for ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ below.
