EXCLUSIVE: Royal Blood Premieres ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ Music Video
Song serves as title track on the British rock duo's recently released second albumOctober 25, 2017
Bullets and bunny rabbits take center stage in the new music video for Royal Blood’s “How Did We Get So Dark?,” premiering exclusively on HowardStern.com.
Directed by The Sacred Egg (Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now,” Royal Blood’s “Lights Out”) and set to the title track of the English rock duo’s recently released sophomore album, the high-octane, Quentin Tarantino-inspired video (above) takes place in a dystopian universe where rabbits have become a commodity and a “Death Proof”-like hitman is trying to take them all at the barrel of a gun.
But the hunter becomes the hunted after he’s discovered by Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher. Suddenly, the video kicks into overdrive with high-speed car chases, a barrage of bullets, and enough carrots to feed a rabbit army.
In addition to dropping new music videos, Royal Blood continues to promote their new album on tour. After wrapping a string of shows this week with Queens of the Stone Age, the band is headed across the pond to kick off a European tour, including headlining several large arena concerts in the U.K. and Ireland.
The duo has also performed live in the Stern Show studios, delivering a memorable rendition of “Figure It Out” in 2015 during their first sit-down with Howard. Listen again (below) and don’t forget to grab a copy of Royal Blood’s critically acclaimed new album “How Did We Get So Dark?” here.
