Mike Kerr, vocals and guitar for Royal Blood, discussed how crucial getting sober was in the making of Typhoons. A pivotal moment came in the early stages of the album, when making "Boilermaker" with Josh Homme. '“... one night I said to him that a record should make you a better person at the end of it, or at least that it could. He didn’t say anything, he just looked down and cheersed me. I certainly feel like a better person now to when it all began.”'
Typhoons releases next Friday, April 30.
