Royal Blood - I Only Lie When I Love You

Royal Blood

I Only Lie When I Love You

New single out now

“The riffology achieves a merciless muscularity that surpasses even their first album.” – Q

“An album that will undoubtedly see Royal Blood going stratospheric.” – DIY

“A musical space located somewhere between the sonic futurism of Muse and Queen of The Stone Age’s desert rock cool.” – Mojo 

Royal Blood have released a new single from their recently released second album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ by sharing the new track ‘I Only Lie When I Love You’. 

Watch the video here: 

Produced by Jolyon Thomas and Royal Blood, the duo’s patented two-man artillery of carefully constructed melodic aggression powers ‘I Only Lie When I Love You’, which presents a compelling cowbell-assisted reminder of the power of a stop-start riff and a strident chorus. Its immediacy is heightened by the band’s harmony vocals which add a fresh element to Royal Blood’s sonic palette.

The release of ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ adds a second chapter to Royal Blood’s story after their gargantuan breakthrough. Their debut album was the fastest-selling British rock debut in three years, hitting #1 in the UK, debuting in the Top 5 on the US Billboard 200, going Top 20 in twelve countries, and selling over a million copies. Before they knew it they were performing for Howard Stern, touring with Foo Fighters, holding dressing room audiences with Jimmy Page in New York, and being presented with a BRIT for Best British Band in 2015 by the very same guitar god. Their ascendency was further underlined with major awards courtesy of Kerrang!, NME and Q.

Royal Blood will play their first full UK and Ireland arena tour in support of their new album in November, with special guests At The Drive In and support from Black Honey.
