With their highly-anticipated third album ‘Typhoons’ arriving on 30th April, Royal Blood are giving us the latest taste of what to expect with brand new track ‘Limbo’.
“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play,” the band’s Mike Kerr says of the new record. “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.”
