Riff rock titans Royal Blood are, at long last, back. After months of speculation and rumours, the band have officially announced their second album, entitled ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’.

Details are still fairly sparse – we’ve yet to see a track list or pre-order options but we do, at least, have a date to mark on our calendars: 16th June.  The band announced the record via a short YouTube clip which sees the painting of a mural – presumably the album’s cover art – over which can be heard a snippet of ‘We Are You Now?’, a song originally released last year as part of the Vinyl OST.

While it’s anyone’s guess what the track listing is going to look like at this point, likely inclusions would be ‘Hook, Line & Sinker’ – a song first aired at last year’s Reading Festival – and, of course, ‘Where Are You Now?’.
