‘HOW DID WE GET SO DARK?’ OUT TODAY ON WARNER BROS. RECORDS
BAND TO SUPPORT
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE THIS FALL
LOS ANGELES, CA – JUNE 16, 2017 – British rock band Royal Blood released its sophomore Warner Bros. Records album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ today. The highly anticipated follow up to their 2015 self-titled debut is available on CD, vinyl and through all digital retailers. Visit www.royalbloodband.com to stream or purchase the album, which features the single “Lights Out,” as well as “Hook, Line, and Sinker” and “I Only Lie When I Love You.”
‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ is currently on pace to double its first week sales numbers and the album’s lead single “Lights Out” has been streamed cumulatively over 15 million times since its release.
After becoming the biggest breaking British rock band with their self-titled 2014 debut album, ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ is one of the most anticipated releases of the summer. Lead single “Lights Out” was released on April 13, 2017 and Royal Blood premiered it in the USA live on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 9, 2017. Watch that performance HERE. Last week, the band returned to Late Night with Seth Meyers with an explosive performance of the track that can be viewed HERE.
Royal Blood’s breakthrough was huge. Their debut album was the fastest-selling British rock debut in three years, hitting #1 in the UK, debuting in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart in the U.S. and going Top 20 in 12 countries. It sold over 1.2 million units (including streams). Before they knew it, they were performing for Howard Stern, touring with Foo Fighters, holding dressing room audiences with Jimmy Page in New York, and being presented with a BRIT for Best British Band in 2015 by the very same guitar god. Their ascendency was further underlined with major awards courtesy of Kerrang!, NME and Q.
Royal Blood is currently on a headlining U.S. tour following appearances at Governors Ball and Bonnaroo. This fall they will support Queens of the Stone Age across the U.S. See below for a complete list of upcoming dates.
