1. Product Details
Four vinyl LP set. 2021 release. After two UK 1 albums 2 million album sales and an array of international acclaim you mightve thought you knew what to expect from Royal Blood. Those preconceptions were shattered when they released Troubles Coming last summer. Hitting a melting pot of fiery rock riffs and danceable beats they delivered something fresh unexpected and yet entirely in tune with what theyd forged their reputation with. When Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher sat down to talk about making a new album they knew what they wanted to achieve. It involved a conscious return to their roots back when they had made music that was influenced by Daft Punk Justice and Philippe Zdar of Cassius. It also called for a similar back-to-basics approach to what had made their self-titled debut album so thrilling visceral and original. Those traits pulsate throughout the new single and title track. Kerrs spiralling bass riff casts an hypnotic allure as it grows in intensity while his vocals switch at will between a raw rock roar and a soulful falsetto. Its underpinned by Thatchers thundering beats his taut rhythms infused with groove-laden hi-hats. After setting the tone with Troubles Coming the album opens in breathless take-no-prisoners style with the fierce metallic grooves of Who Needs Friends hitting an early visceral peak. Royal Blood further reference their fresh array of influences by deploying vocodered vocals on Million & One before dynamically switching between the biggest contrasts of their sound with Limbo. Already a fan favourite having been a regular during the duos 2019 shows Boilermaker lives up to its reputation and is more than matched by Mad Visions which evokes a hyper-aggressive Prince. It ends with a final surprise in the shape of the stark piano ballad All We Have Is Now a vulnerable and revealing reminder to live in the moment. This new approach manifested itself in the duos decision to produce the majority of Typhoons themselves. Boilermaker was produced by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme the two bands having first connected when Royal Blood supported them on a huge North American tour. Meanwhile the multiple Grammy Award winner Paul Epworth produced Who Needs Friends and contributed additional production to Troubles Coming.
