Royal Blood have been explaining how their tour bus has been transformed into a temporary studio as they push to find time to work on new material.

Speaking to NME, Mike Kerr detailed the DIY approach which has enabled his group to continue building on the success of last year’s self-titled debut whilst simultaneously chipping away at its follow-up.

“I built a studio in the back of our bus,” he said. “It’s very hard to write when everything keeps falling over because the driver’s taken a massive corner. It was our writing den – we’d have Clint Eastwood movies playing with the volume down.”

Kerr also hinted that the duo’s second album won’t be straying too far from the bubbling drum and bass recipe of their debut, saying they ‘don’t need to reinvent the wheel’.

Royal Blood remain on tour in the US until October 9th and Austin City Limits.
