    saw them an Panorama last year and came away impressed. I thought they would be more butt rock/bro-ish, and they were not. Just good hard rocking stuff. Good band.

    yeah i was surprised, how much power the two can produce, sadly not had the pleasure of seeing them live yet, but they are supposed to be good

    New song, Typhoons. An album by the same name coming April 30th.


    I like the new one. More so than Troubles Coming. I’m hoping they still bring the heavy breakdowns and rock vibe. These two songs lean heavier on the pop side.

    Fuckin' LOVE Royal Blood. A friend of mine "dragged" me to a concert of theirs a few years ago (2017 I believe) and I hadn't heard a single track of theirs...I left that show a fan and they have *so much* energy! I ended up seeing them again at the first CalJam and really enjoyed their set followed by seeing them open for Queens!

    I believe that's a bass guitar that he plays correct? Pretty good sounds come out of that.

    Yeah, assuming his studio and live setups are the same, all from bass guitar.

    I'm looking forward to the new album. I really enjoyed their opening set for QOTSA.

    A former co-worker of mine told me how amazing they were back in 2017 and I wound up seeing them open for QotSA, too. I had wanted to get there early enough to watch their whole set, but the friends I went to the show with didn't really care about seeing them, so I only caught the second half of their set, but it was still great! The last two songs they played (Figure it Out and Out of the Black) ended up becoming two of my favorites.

    Yup, it is. I feel like these guys are a better version of DFA1979

    Their set for QotSA was awesome...flew out to Red Rocks to catch them towards the end of the tour and it was the final show being played there for that concert season. "Ten Tonne Skeleton" sounds soooooo good live and the crowd really feeds off of its energy...if you haven't seen this band live yet, YOU NEED TO (whenever that will happen again)

    I liked their debut album a lot, it had an energy I hadn't heard since Rage Against the Machine but the sophomore one missed the mark for me after hearing how good the first one was. So my expectations were notably high and I'm probably due to revisit it again to see if it hits any different, i had only given it a few spins. Never seen the band live however and i would definitely be interested sometime down the road.

    Haven't made my mind up with the new single but I certainly want to give their third album a chance.

    ^^ not digging this one. After one listen, it sounds like the song has an identity crisis is the only way I can describe it.

    Good description. I feel like that’s where these guys are in general right now. Obviously I haven’t heard the whole album, but it feels, so far, that they’ve moved to this disco-pop-rock sound. Where’s the big sound, the massive drum breakdowns, etc? I hope they are coming.

    Boilermaker is finally getting a proper release next week as a single before the album is out. This song fucking rules. I can't wait to hear the studio version.
