Royal Blood ~ Boilermaker

Royal Blood lead singer Mike Kerr stated in an interview, “A boilermaker is a horrible, horrible drink. It’s a shot of whiskey (dropped) in a beer… When you’re drinking them, you know things are going wrong.” Strange then the juxtaposition of the boisterous fan-favorite track Boilermaker (first introduced during their 2019 European tour) up against this ill- Continue reading Royal Blood ~ Boilermaker
