Royal Blood Reveal ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ Album Release Plans + Artwork in New Trailer
Welcome back, Royal Blood! After an impressive self-titled debut album in 2014, the duo are now on track to return with their sophomore set How Did We Get So Dark? on June 16.
The band made the release date announcement in a new trailer for their disc in which they are seen painting a mural on the side of a wall that some are suspecting is the album art for the new disc. The mural features a pair of female figures sitting at a black table. It should also be noted that the clip is soundtracked by an instrumental driving guitar piece that sounds very much in the vein of Royal Blood music. Check it out below.
Singer Mike Kerr previously told NME that the band worked out of a warehouse space in Burbank to create their new album. "We"d party at night and write all day. By that point, we felt the record was coming together and there was a bit of a theme between the songs,” says the singer, who added that they wrote around 50 songs for the disc.
He explained that they had a motto of "anything you're not proud of, bin it," with the results yielding a "way sexier, more confident sounding" album. Though the band has yet to reveal any details concerning a track listing, they did premiere a song called "Hook, Line and Sinker" at last year's Reading Festival.
