But Brighton-based Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher certainly aren’t lacking in confidence. And rightly so. In the five years since forming Royal Blood the duo have taken their crunching blues riffs and titanic choruses from open-mic nights in Worthington to headlining London’s Alexandra Palace three nights in a row. It’s been a rapid rise, certainly, but gradual enough for the singer-bassist and drummer to scale up their production and...

At The Drive In Fly Back With Call Broken Arrow

At The Drive In are back with the new single from their latest album, in • ter a • li • a. And what’s more, Call Broken Arrow acts as a prequel to the recent video for Hostage Stamps. “In Hostage Stamps, we have a prisoner being tortured and monitored by some sort of authoritarian organisation,” explains director Rob Shaw. “The guys wanted to show why he was imprisoned, as well as cast doubt over his innocence. “It’s funny how in stories, especially film stories, you tend to sympathise with whoever you spend time with. When you watch someone...

Festival: Glastonbury 2017 Blew The Roof Off Festival Season!

Every year the world’s music festivals announce their line-ups, generally in dribs and drabs, each competing with one another for the slickest offerings – be they pop, rock, dance, legends or any other kind of make-up. But there is one festival that always, always blows the rest out of the water, seemingly without even trying. So when this morning’s first “full” line-up for this year’s Glastonbury Festival was announced, after months of speculation and incorrect guesswork, it took our expectations … and raised them to a whole new level, well and truly blowing the roof off 2017’s festival season!...
