Just in on Sport Playlists! Royal Blood drop new track ‘Hook Line & Sinker’. Listen to the brand new single now on the Shoot New Release Playlist! According to the band, ‘Hook, Line & Sinker’ is the heaviest track on the new album and currently bass guitarist Mike Kerr’s favourite song to play live.
After becoming the biggest breaking British rock band with their self-titled 2014 debut album, Royal Blood’s eagerly anticipated second album How Did We Get So Dark? will be released on June 16th on Warner Bros. Records.
Royal Blood’s debut album was the fastest-selling British rock debut in three years, hitting #1 in the UK, debuting in the Top 5 on the US Billboard 200, going Top 20 in twelve countries, and selling over a million copies.
Before they knew it they were performing for Howard Stern, touring with Foo Fighters, holding dressing room audiences with Jimmy Page, and being presented with a BRIT for Best British Band in 2015.
Their ascendency was further underlined with major awards courtesy of Kerrang!, NME and Q.
In addition to the new single, the duo have announced a set of UK and Europe tour dates concluding in their hometime of Brighton. While the headline tour doesn’t start until October 2017, Royal Blood will play several fesivals over the summer including Glastonbury, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, The Governors Ball, Summer Sonic, Lollapalooza and Eden Sessions.
