Royal Blood drop Ten Tonne Skeleton
View latest promo from UK rock duo
Ten Tonne Skeleton is lifted from their self-titled debut, which launched earlier this year via Warner Bros. It will be released on December 1 and comes backed with B-side You Want Me.
Bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher use no guitars on the album, with Kerr feeding his bass through multiple amps to achieve their sound – something he previously insisted wasn’t a new technique.
He said: “The bass and drum thing isn’t new and neither is using more than one amp. Even with people I look up to like Jack White or Josh Homme, their sounds and a big portion of what they do is borrowed. They put their own stamp on it and that’s what makes a good idea. That’s something I still aspire to be able to do.
“Every day I’m figuring out new ways of expanding it and it’s still developing. There’s only two of us and we’re trying to sound like there are four.”
The pair head out on a 13-date UK and Ireland tour later this month.
