‘PULL ME THROUGH‘
| NEW ALBUM BACK TO THE WATER BELOW DUE OUT SEPTEMBER 1
Royal Blood have unveiled their new single ‘Pull Me Through’ which received its first play as Jack Saunders’ Hottest Record on Radio 1. The new single previews Royal Blood’s eagerly anticipated fourth album ‘Back To The Water Below’ which follows a week earlier than previously stated on September 1st. ‘Pull Me Through’ comes in the wake of breakout single ‘Mountains At Midnight’ which Clara Amfo premiered on her Radio 1 Future Sounds show.
Since then, Royal Blood have hit stadiums across Europe as special guests to Muse and played a triumphant Glastonbury set in the penultimate Pyramid stage slot to headliners Arctic Monkeys, while the pre-order for the stunning zoetrope vinyl edition of the album saw all 4000 copies swiftly snapped up.
‘Pull Me Through’ is indicative of the broader palette of sounds that Royal Blood explore throughout ‘Back To The Water Below’. A step apart from anything they have previously released, the song builds upwards from its initial melancholic piano melody before erupted with a full-blooded denouement that ensures this stylistic shift is still resolutely Royal Blood. Themes of guilt and recrimination lurk ominously in Mike Kerr’s words, notably with the arresting lyric, “On a bed made of ‘What have you done?’”
Mike Kerr says, “‘Pull Me Through’ is ultimately about giving up on persevering alone and finding strength in asking for help. It’s a song that is driven by the lyrics and melody, as opposed to the riffs doing the heavy lifting. Despite being piano led, it feels very much like a missing limb to our artillery and a track we’ve been eager to perform live.”
As with the rest of ‘Back To The Water Below’, ‘Pull Me Through’ was solely written and produced by Royal Blood.
Back To The Water Below’ is available to pre-order / pre-save HERE.
The release of ‘Back To The Water Below’ heralds a bold new chapter for Royal Blood. Their story is of two life-long friends, Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher, whose shared passion for rousing, full-throttle hard rock has led them on an extraordinary adventure together – a story of such success that it has yet to be repeated, leading to a succession of achievements that are as rare as they are remarkable. Moving from the pub circuit in their native Brighton to topping the UK album charts, winning the BRIT Award for Best British Group and garnering famous fans from Lars Ulrich and Jimmy Page. They’ve remained on a similar trajectory ever since, with their subsequent albums ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ and ‘Typhoons’ both racing straight to #1.
Royal Blood’s Northern summer continues with three festival headline sets plus a landmark show at Brighton Beach ahead of an intimate UK headline tour in October. For all touring and ticketing information, please see HERE.
