Royal Blood share new 'Hold On' video starring Colin Hanks

Lifted from their recent record ‘Typhoons’.

Following the release of their recent record ‘Typhoons’ back in April, Royal Blood are now sharing the video for ‘Hold On’.

Starring Colin Hanks, with some cheeky cameos from Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys’ drummer Matt Helders, frontman Mike Kerr said of ‘Hold On’ in a track-by-track with NME, “I think it was the first time I had written a song for someone else, who was going through a really difficult time. Like most of our songs, it started with the main riff, and I think it was the first time I’ve stumbled across a riff that felt really positive and really euphoric. I don’t think we have anything else like that. The message is about being there for someone and letting them know that they’re not alone.”

On ‘Typhoons’, twice chart-topping rockers Royal Blood have filled their swaggering riffery with stories born of a time of huge personal change. “There’s no lines to read between,” explains Mike Kerr.
