Royal Blood aired brand new song ‘Hook Line And Sinker’ during their Reading Festival set last weekend (August 29). Introducing it, frontman Mike Kerr said, “We were talking backstage earlier and wondering if you guys would mind us playing a new song.” Built on a sludgy bass riff and a pounding rhythm from drummer Ben Thatcher, the track featured a falsetto chorus in which Kerr sang “Say my name again/ You’re caught in the middle”.

The Brighton duo released their self-titled debut album in August last year. They subsequently went on to win the prize for Best British Group at this year’s Brit Awards. The band also won Best New Band and Best Live Band at this year’s NME Awards with Austin, Texas.
