British rock duo Royal Blood released a new single and music video today. The song is called “Lights Out.” The song is our first real taste of their sophomore album How Did We Get So Dark? Look for the record on June 16th.

The band bashed out the instrumental versions of the song in Nashville, LA, and Brighton. Then headed off to Brussels to record the polished songs. The album was finally mixed in London.

Bass Drum of Death

If you like loud, fuzzy, boogy, hard rock, you should be able to slip easily into this song, “Left For Dead.”

I hope your computer speakers can go to 11… Mississippi’s Bass Drum of Death sound stellar. OK, so this record, Rip This, is a year-old…never you mind.

I first say Bass Drum of Death in 2011, when they opened for Japandroids.  That show was life affirming. Today I read they are currently on tour with one of CFOX’s favourite bands, Royal Blood.

Royal Blood will be on The Late Late Show with James Corden on September 22nd. On their fourth late night TV appearance they’ll perform the Much Mega Hit “Figure It Out.”

And I’m not sure what I think about this remix, but here we are.

Whoa…I wish that BDOD and Royal Blood tour would drift north to the Terminal City.
