  • Featured Video: Royal Blood "Out of the Black"

    Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:10:45

    It's all about bunnies.

    Bunnies. It's all about bunnies. Well, at least a bunny robbing a convenience store in Royal Blood's "Out of the Black" video, which is funny, silly and backed by riffs that do not, can not and will not quit, along with some battering ram percussion.

    This bunny, who chokes out a fellow convenience store customer, isn't exactly cute and fuzzy like that Cadbury egg-birthing rabbit or the never-stops Energizer bunny, either. He is his own maniacal animal, that's for sure.

    He is one rabbit you don't want to eff with. He has a bullet with your name on it, perhaps?

    The video slays since it vacillates between live action and animated imagery with a graphic novel skew.

    Vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr told us about the video, saying, "We revisited that song, and I think it's by far the best video we've ever made. I have to admit we didn’t have a ton of involvement as it really was the directors' brainchild. We’re super happy with it. It's bonkers. It's hard to explain to someone who hasn’t seen it."

    Since Royal Blood are our deserved Artist of the Week, we've been rocking this video over and over and you should, too, kids.

    Stick around for the pumpkins and ice cream cones, you basic bitches! But Royal Blood are anything by basic, y'all.

    —Amy Sciarretto
