British rockers Royal Blood are in studio right now working the follow up to 2014’s most excellent self-titled debut.
In an interview with NME, the band had this to say about the direction of their new record. I love/hate how British bands always name-check and torch other British bands. “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane is a beautiful song.
“We had a warehouse space in Burbank and it was great,” frontman Mike Kerr said. “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.”
He added that the band wrote around 50 songs for the album with the motto “anything you’re not proud of, bin it” – with the results proving “way sexier, more confident sounding” than their debut.
Asked if their second album would feature more piano, drummer Ben Thatcher said: “We’re not turning into Keane, put it that way. We’re still bringing the rock n’ roll.”
