Royal Blood Unleash New Video Of Josh Homme Directed “Boilermaker”


English rock duo Royal Blood have shared a new video for their studio version of fan favourite “Boilermaker”. A track produced by Queen of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme.

Check out the clip here.

The track was recorded in Homme’s Pink Duck Studio in Los Angeles and directed by Liam Lynch.

This is the fourth track released by the rock band from their upcoming album “Typhoons”. An album due for release on April 30.

The track follows on from the band’s recent release of the single “Limbo”. “Trouble’s Coming” was released last September, while “Boilermaker” was orginally unleashed in January.

“Boilermaker” was also among the tracks performed by Royal Blood during the Leeds and Reading Music Festivals in 2019. It first debuted on their live set in the summer of that same year.

Royal Blood new album “A unique experience”

Royal Blood frontman, Mike Kerr called Josh Homme a “strong willed character”.

“He gave us such confidence in ourselves”, Kerr continued, We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it. It sounds fresh”. 

In January, Kerr also explained to NME of the “unique experience” of making “Typhoons”.

“We had a unique experience making it, because usually you go in, track a record, then you’re done and you go on tour”.

He continued, “You only really have time to reflect and know what you’ve made much later on, whereas making this record was so patchy and very start-stop that it gave us this unique perspective as part of the process”.

“We really miss playing live. Like with ‘Typhoons’, we need to have the knowledge that this isn’t going to last forever and live shows will come back. When they do, I feel like we’ve written the perfect album”.

“It’s a celebration”, Kerr added.

It was also confirmed that the rock duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher are to headline the Victorious Festival later this year.

The line up also includes Madness, The Streets, Richard Ashcroft and the Kooks. Other artists also include Craig David, the Fratellis, Rag’n’Bone Man and Fontaines D.C. Check out Nova’s report on that for more here.
