Following the announcement and the release of their single, ‘Typhoons’, Royal Blood have released an accompanying music video.
The Quentin Deronzier-directed new promo sees the pair – Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher – perform nearby to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London, with their show casting “a magnetic spell across the city resulting in hundreds of people sprinting to join them,” according to a press release. “As a storm erupts, the duo are surrounded: a typhoon looms large over them, its movements mirrored by the intense, spiralling reaction of the crowd below.”
Typhoons is off Royal Blood’s upcoming third record of the same name, which is due to be released on April 30th 2021.
Royal Blood have announced the details of their upcoming third record.
The release, ‘Typhoons’ is set to be released on 30th April 2021 via Warner Records. This follows on from ‘Trouble’s Coming’ late in 2020, where they’ve now released the title track from the aforementioned record.
Mike Kerr (Vocals) says on the upcoming release: \
“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play. That’s what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling. It’s weird, though – if you think back to “Figure it Out”, it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it. On paper, it’s a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.”
‘Typhoons’, the follow-up to 2017’s ‘How Did We Get So Dark’, it was mostly self-produced apart from ‘Boilermaker’ (produced by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme’ and ‘Who Needs Friends’ (produced by Paul Epworth, who also lends a hand on ‘Trouble’s Coming’).

Happy October everyone!! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!
We’re kicking things off with alive video in the form of Brutus with ‘War (Live In Ghent)’. This is a cut from their new live album, out now via Hassle Records – ‘Live In Ghent’ was recorded in their hometown in front of a sold-out 750 fans.
The band say: “Four video’s have already been released: Fire, Cemetery, All Along and Sugar Dragon. Right now, we are happy to announce our personal favourite: War. This song is super special to us. Not only does it reflect a tough period, but this song has set a new standard for our writing ever since. We are so happy we can share this live version.”
Now, following its premiere on NEW NOISE MAGAZINE, ska-punk veterans Less Than Jake bring fans another new single from their forthcoming album, Silver Linings. ‘Dear Me’ is streaming now. Silver Linings is set to be released on December 11th via Pure Noise Records.
On the new single, the band shares: “I wrote this song as a tribute to a few special people in my life who are no longer around. What it is like to reach the impasse of where words can’t convey emotions. This is my internal struggle to understand their internal struggle.
Up next is Dayze, a Mexican American musician who grew up in a Calexico, a town on the US/Mexico border. Growing up, he commuted between the USA and Mexico on a daily basis. To him, his situation is not special. In fact, he’s sure others can relate to the struggles that come from living in two different worlds. Dayze lacked many things growing up, but the one thing he always had was the love and support of his parents.
He says, “I believe that the unconditional love and support of my parents was what ultimately gave me the courage to start playing music. I was a very introverted teen and when I got my first acoustic guitar everything changed. That guitar gave me purpose, motivation, and desire to learn and grow. Eventually, I started my first metalcore/scene band and that’s when I knew that music would always be a part of my life. All these experiences culminated when I decided to start Dayze, my solo project, which delves more into the alternative rock realm. I was at a point in my life where I felt emotionally repressed, so I started writing lyrics and singing them. Day by day I realized how much this helped me get all the negativity out of my heart and thoughts. My hope is to hopefully connect with people around the world through my music.”
After releasing a string of singles and an EP, he’s back with a new single titled “My Way” and he plans to continue to release new music in the months ahead.
We’re getting around the world today. Next is the Japanese heavy hitters Crystal Lake have shared a video for ‘Disobey’, the counterpart to their forthcoming 7″ double-single alongside ‘Watch Me Burn’.
You can pre-order their ‘Watch Me Burn/Disobey’ 7″ single now, which is set to be released in December 2020.
Back in UK waters for the fourth choice in the roundup, we have Palm Reader.
It’s the second single from the band’s upcoming album ‘Sleepless‘, set for release on 27th November via Church Road Records.
The band also have a livestream coming up, on 23rd November from St Edmunds Church in Rochdale.
Vocalist Josh Mckeown says: “‘Willow’ was written after I’d been told a heartbreaking story of loss and young motherhood. I wrote it with the intention of illuminating the strength of any mother in that unfortunate position and to offer a permanent gesture of respect to them.
“It was one of the first songs we wrote for Sleepless and it definitely helped set the tone musically for a lot of what was to come. We’ve put together a music video with the help and expertise of our good friend and collaborator Sam Lees. His creativity and vision will further highlight the lyrical content and the sentiment attached to the song.”
Time for something a little different in genre. That’s what is so great about these roundups. You never know who you’re going to get. With that, we have Mike Taveira.
“Karma” is the breakup anthem for anyone who feels like their ex has yet received the karma they deserve. The single will be released alongside the official music video, which was created in collaboration with Canada’s Drag Race star Lemon.
Los Angeles-based Mike Taveira made a splash earlier this year with his pansexual pop anthem, “Curious,” which grabbed the attention of tastemakers like Billboard Pride, Gay Times, and PRIDE. Growing up without any openly pansexual figures to look up to, Taveira knew that his personal journey needed to be expressed through his own music. In each of the three singles he has released so far, “Heart,” “Curious,” and, now, “Karma,” Taveira showcases his infectious R&B-pop sensibilities while tackling the complexities and vulnerability of sexual identity. With an underlying message that preaches to be true to yourself, whoever you love, whatever you identity as, and whatever life throws your way, Taveira is set to become a force in the evolution of queer pop music.
Now, one band whom is definately on the spectrum these days is the delicious and wonderful Spanish Love Songs.
‘Self-Destruction (As a Sensible Career Choice)’ is a song from the band’s second album ‘Brave Faces Everyone’, which was released earlier this year via Pure Noise Records.
Lead vocalist Dylan Slocum shares: “This song is about feeling trapped. People like to say ‘it gets better’ about depression or anxiety, but this is about that creeping feeling that it might not. That maybe you’ll be stuck feeling a certain way, or working a job you hate, or with a body you hate, forever.
“By the time we decided to do another video, the lockdown blues had gotten pretty intense. Being the ultra-positive band that we are, we decided to throw ourselves little solo parties and invited our fans to do the same. Four hours of footage later, it turned out we all needed the party more than we knew.”
I have one question for everyone now, who want’s some new Royal Blood? Well, you better do because the duo has released their first new material since the release of 2017’s second album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’, ‘Trouble’s Coming’ is a taster of the follow up to that record, expected to drop in spring 2021.
Citing influences including Daft Punk and Justice, bassist and vocalist Mike Kerr explains: “It was the moment something started to click – where we started playing over those much more rigid dance beats. The breakthrough was realising that there was real common ground between that and what we’d done before. It’s that AC/DC aspect: where the quality that makes the riffs seem so cutting is because of that beat.
“Although on the surface we were stepping outside what we’d done before, it didn’t feel at all unnatural; it felt like we were returning to music we’d loved from the very beginning.
“It was all about the beat. It felt like familiar territory, but something we’d censored in ourselves.”
Bring Me Horizon have had a good few announcements lately. They’ve announed a tour, oe of their ‘Post Human’ EP’s and now they have a new video out in the world.
The forthcoming ‘Post Human: Survival Horror’ EP is expected to be the first in a planned series of four which is set for a release on October 30th 2020.
Check out ‘Teardrops’ below.
And lastly in this weeks roundup we have some legends to close out this one.
Leaked photos from last month showed AC/DC recording a new video in the Netherlands now suddenly make a whole lot more sense, as the rock’n’roll legends have released their awesome performance-based video for latest single Shot In The Dark.
Discussing POWER UP with Kerrang, as a whole, Angus Young explained that the record is a tribute to the late Malcolm Young.
“I know Mal’s not with us anymore, but he’s there with us in spirit,” Angus said. “This band was his baby, his life. He was always one [to say], ‘You keep going.’ His big line always, every now and again, he’d go, ‘If you’re a musician, it’s a bit like being on the Titanic. The band goes down with the ship.’ That’s how he viewed it.
“Even the title we gave it, POWER UP, pretty much sums him up, too,” he continued. “When he put on that guitar, he was one big guitar. To put it this way: When he played guitar, it sounded like there were two people playing.”
Check ou AC/DC’s new video for ‘Shot In The Dark’ below.

Royal Blood have had a pretty quiet 2020 compared to some artists. Apart from a few shows and festivals that have now been cancelled due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, there’s pretty much been no word from their camp. Until now.
Their upcoming single, ‘Trouble’s Coming’ is set to be played on Annie Mac’s show on BBC Radio 1 tomorrow!
This will be the first new music Royal Blood have had out in the world since their 2017 record, ‘How Did We Get So Dark’.
At the time of writing, there’s no word if this is part of an upcoming, EP, Record or standalone single release.
You thought I forgot??? Not this week. It’s time for another round of music videos! Ten of the best from the last week’s releases. Here we go.
First up is Our Last Night. These New Hampshire rockers have released a stunning new video for their track, ‘Ivory Tower’, which comes from their latest record, Selective Hearing.
Now, we go to Hertfordshire. This post-hardcore band just released this track as a self-released single. They’re called ‘Chocolate’ and this is their brilliant new track, Ninth Cloud.
Next, we’re going a little retro for Turnover’s new video. This track is taken from the bands latest record, ‘Good Nature’ which was released in August through Run For Cover Records. Here’s Super Natural.
Now, we move to something a little more spooky (given that Halloween has been this week. This is Courage My Love and this track from their newest record, ‘Synesthesia’ which was released in February on Warner Music Canada. Check out their claustrophobic video for the track ‘Walls’ below.
For this band, we’re coming back to the British Isles. They are due to go out on an Arena tour of the UK next month and their second record, ‘How Did We Get So Dark’ was met with critical acclaim. This is the title track from the record from Royal Blood.
Now this next British band dropped the track to acclaim from many but the track always makes you want to find and listen to more because of its huge sound. With these trippy visuals for the track, The Free Life, Turbowolf can do no wrong.
Let’s turn our attention to some up and comers. This rock outfit called Track And Field will be releasing their debut album in a few weeks but now they’re gearing up for its release with this new video. Here’s Drown.
Going to the capital next, (London) for this indie-punk group whose name is a little mouthful (itoldyouiwouldeatyou). This comes released by Failure By Design Records and is one that catches you just that little bit off guard. Here’s ‘Mourn’.
We’ve reached the penultimate video of this post and the sound comes reminiscent of early Pop-Punk. so think Green Day, Blink 182 etc. This band hails from Berlin and are the newest signings of Krod Records. This is South Berkley with ‘Tiny Rascals’.
Now, this last track comes from a band who has arisen once again! This comes from the Yorkshire rockers; Skarlett Riot who have just dropped their new record, ‘Regenerate’. If you have had any doubt about this band in the past, then this video for their new single ‘Warrior’ will put your mind at ease.
And that’s it for another round of music videos. Don’t forget to check back next week for another ten of the best.
