Watch the Video for Royal Blood’s ‘I Only Lie When I Love You’

Subscribe to Z-Rock: The Rock of Rochester on

British rock duo Royal Blood have released a third song and video, “I Only Lie When I Love You,” which you can watch above, from their forthcoming album How Did We Get So Dark?

The black-and-white video is a dizzying view of the band’s Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher playing in a white-screened vacuum.

Back in April, the band released the album’s first single, “Lights Out,” which they also performed on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night, and issued their second, “Hook, Line & Sinker,” in May.

Despite the foreboding album and song titles, Kerr told DIY Magazine “We always find the funny side to everything. “You either play the BRIT Awards and think ‘I’m the f—ing Don.’ Or you think, ‘Well, this is funny. I’m on the BRITs and I’ve only been playing bass for three years. Don’t tell anyone!’ It’s all a bit of a laugh from this point onwards.”

Their humor should serve them well this summer. Royal Blood set off on a tour last week that will run through mid-August and include several major festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. They’re fresh off playing New York City’s Governors Ball, which was the second date of the tour. “It’s good to get back into the swing of things after a year making this record and being off the road. It feels great to be back,” Kerr told the Sun of playing the ball.

Their “sexy” sophomore record, as they’ve called it, is due out June 16 on Warner Bros. Records, and can be pre-ordered on the band’s website. “I feel like we are better at being in Royal Blood now,” Kerr said of their second time out. “We started this band as a friendship so things like that come first. I think the reason we make good music together is because we are good friends.”
