Royal Blood unleash new video for ‘Hook, Line, and Sinker’

UK duo Royal Blood shared the music video for their new single “Hook, Line and Sinker” from their upcoming album How Did We Get So Dark. The clip, directed by Ben Lowe for The Firepit, features the band performing the track mixed with shots of the crowd losing their mind shot with a fisheye lens. Check out the new video below.

The band first premiered this track in 2015 during the Reading Festival set. Now, the song will be featured on their long-awaited sophomore album, out June 16 via Warner Bros. The record also features lead single “Lights Out,” which also got the video treatment last month.

Starting in June the band will hit the road for their summer North American tour. Dates kick off June 2 in Boston, MA and wrap up August 16 in Los Angeles, CA. They also will be playing this year’s Lollapalooza festival on August 5 in Chicago, IL. Find the complete list of dates below.
