Highly Anticipated ‘Typhoons’ Album From Royal Blood Drops Friday

U.K.-based duo Royal Blood is set to deliver their first album of new material in nearly four years on Friday. Typhoons is a clear step forward for the band and are set to build on the success of already released singles ‘Trouble’s Coming’ and the title track ‘Typhoons’.

When Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher sat down to discuss the new album initially, they consciously decided on a return to their roots. Influenced by the likes of Daft Punk, Justice, and others, the dynamic results find the band really hitting their stride on tracks like ‘Million and One’ and ‘Limbo’.

It is without a doubt the most ambitious and wildest we have allowed ourselves to be and we can’t wait to invite you this far down the rabbit hole with us.”

-Royal Blood

There’s still a little time to pre-order the album and they’ve got lots of cool options from vinyl, cd & cassette to signed limited-edition options.

The Next Level

Royal Blood is poised to take things to the next level with this new album. Having sold more than two million albums and earned international praise for their previous releases, the band has laid a nice foundation for the next phase of their career. Now it’s time to build the proverbial house.

Just to shatter the air of impartiality in this review, I’m a huge fan of the band. Having caught their set opening for the Foo Fighters in the summer of 2015, I was impressed from the opening note. I knew at the time that I liked what I heard on the album but needed to see them deliver in a live setting to seal the deal. Needless to say, they delivered and I’ve been on the bus ever since.

Typhoons Tracklist:

  1. Trouble’s Coming
  2. Oblivion
  3. Typhoons
  4. Who Needs Friends
  5. Million & One
