“Boilermaker” features Royal Blood’s signature dirty bass riffs and driving rhythms, weaved into an irresistible groove that wears its QOTSA influence on its sleeve. The band have also shared a trippy official video for the track featuring Liam Lynch of 2003’s “United States Of Whatever” fame, describing Lynch’s appearance as a “stone-cold masterpiece”.

“Boilermaker” is hailed as a fan favourite. Royal Blood first debuted the track back in 2019 during a heavy touring schedule that included sets at Redding and Leads Festival. The UK duo – bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher – then took the track to Queens Of The Stone Age frontman, Josh Homme who produced the track at his Pink Duck studio in Los Angeles.

Kerr explained in a statement: "This is written a report from the front line of my own self destruction. Chasing all things toxic no matter how grotesque the combination. However, the marriage of talent involved in its creation was a delicious one. Its bones discovered in I Know I Know's bedroom. Produced by the Jedi master Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. A life changing experience we will be forever grateful for. And finally a massive thank you to Liam Lynch for creating such a stone cold masterpiece of a video."

Boilermaker is the fourth track to tease Typhoons. The previous singles include – “Trouble’s Coming”, the title track and “Limbo.Typhoons will be available in digital, black and coloured vinyl, and CD formats. Pre-order, here.
