Royal Blood Announces New Album, “Typhoons”
The hard rock bass and drum duo Royal Blood has announced a new album and unleashed the title track. Typhoons is described as a return to their roots by reconnecting with electronic music that inspired their debut album. Vocalist Mike Kerr, whose monstrous bass sound fills the whole sonic spectrum, says the creativity came by chance.
“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play,” he stated. “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,’ (from the debut album) it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realized 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.”
