Royal Blood return with new single 'Trouble's Coming'

Having remained largely silent since the release of their 2017 sophomore album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’, Royal Blood are back once again to share a brand new single.

The new track 'Trouble's Coming' is the first first the duo in three years, and is set to feature on their forthcoming third LP, which will arrive sometime next year.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Mike Kerr said, “It was the moment something started to click - where we started playing over those much more rigid dance beats. The breakthrough was realising that there was real common ground between that and what we’d done before. It’s that AC/DC aspect: where the quality that makes the riffs seem so cutting is because of that beat.

“Although on the surface we were stepping outside what we’d done before, it didn’t feel at all unnatural; it felt like we were returning to music we’d loved from the very beginning: Daft Punk, Justice, things that were really groove-orientated. It was all about the beat. It felt like familiar territory, but something we’d censored in ourselves.

While Ben Thatcher adds, “When we first broke out, there were only two elements to the band. I didn’t just have to carry the beat, I’d have to colour in the changes. We were both bearing a lot of freight, sonically. But this was a different challenge; less varied, maybe, but so satisfying as a drummer.”
