    Their first album was good, so I'll join you in perching on the power lines.

  3. I loved the debut, but this new single isn't doing it for me.

    Just got a chance to hear the single now.

  5. There's a bit about the new album in their NME cover story:

    Like their debut, it’s a huge-sounding record. First single ‘Lights Out’ is a reliable indication of the rest of it: sharper riffs, bigger beats and deeper grooves. While it’s most definitely a rock album, this time Royal Blood were determined to bring in all of their influences. Take, as an example, ‘Lights Out’: “We were going for a Daft Punk thing quite a lot and trying to f**k with the rock thing, 
I guess,” says Mike. “What would Daft Punk do if they wrote a rock tune?” Then there’s the album’s closing track ‘Sleep’, which they describe as a “Black Sabbath hip-hop tune”.

    They also went to see Banks live and said they dance to "Work" by Kelly Rowland on their tour bus. Kings.

    The album is a great, lean blast of stupid loud fun. They combine hooks with these big, robust guitar riffs so well. It's brash and bombastic but also weirdly palatable too. I saw someone on my Facebook moaning about how they're not really rock music and I was like... who gives a shit? Whatever they are is clearly working, they're immensely talented, and the music is a fun.

    I would love to see them, but the Glasgow date appears to be pretty much sold out. I got curious and it looks like the whole tour is selling really well. I didn't even think they were arena level yet, so good on them.

  7. This week has been great fro new music. They are definitely rock, they are the closest thing ti Led Zeppelin since Wolfmother. After a few listens it hasn't got the epicness of the thier debut but still a really strong follow up and nothing i woupd skip. So gutted the U.S get a tour with Queens and Royal Blood toghther, what a gig.
  8. Second #1 album. Släy.

    The title track is my current favourite.
  9. I don't know all the individual songs properly yet, but as an album as a whole it's very solid, and there's nothing I want to skip. Lights Out is probably my favourite at the moment, maybe because I know it the best.
  10. Much better than the debut. The debut had a few filler tracks. This album is great from start to finish. Every song is great! Royal Blood have so much swag to their sound.
  11. New single coming tomorrow


  12. Bit of a bop girlies. The disco strings and little "Mamma Mia"-esque riff thing are so fun.

  13. This is better than I expected! I wrote them off after the underwhelming second album, but this new direction suits them well. It'd feel obvious to once again compare them to Death From Above 1979 or Queens Of The Stone Age but I do hear both bands in this bop a bit.

  14. It took me a little while to warm up to Trouble’s Coming but now that I have I realise it’s exactly the type of song I wanted them to come back with. I can hear similarities with Nothing But Thieves. I’ve loved their past 2 albums so I’m pretty excited to have them releasing again.
