Mike Kerr of Royal Blood spoke to Vanyaland about making the duo's second album, especially coming off a well praised debut. He said, "We just built a recording setup into our tour bus and we’re trying to get some demos done. It’s mainly trying to get some ideas down on the road, then we have a couple of weeks off in September where we’ll go into the studio. The pressure will come when we kind of really get into the second record – the famous difficult second record. But we’re really enjoying what we’re doing at the moment. You’re moving around so much and you really don’t get a real moment to process. Then you go home and you might sort of go, ‘Wow, that was mad.’”
