British rock duo Royal Blood unveiled a striking video for “Lights Out,” which is the lead single off their forthcoming album, “How Did We Get So Dark?”, due out June 16th via Warner Bros. Records.

The clip finds bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher performing the song in an empty room that slowly fills with water. As the pair hit the first chorus of “Lights Out,” a horde of bodies burst out of invisible pools on the floor, ceiling and walls. During a raucous instrumental section, the room is cast in a deep red light and Thatcher and Kerr continue to play in the waist high water as dancers move around them.

How Did We Get So Dark? follows Royal Blood’s 2014 self-titled debut, which debuted in the Top Five and made fans like Jimmy Page and the Foo Fighters, who asked the band as opener  for their 2015 world tours.

Royal Blood wrote the instrumentals for How Did We Get So Dark? during sessions in Brighton, England, Los Angeles and Nashville. The band began cutting the album in Brussels last November with producer Joylon Thomas and finished it London with co-producer Tom Dalgety.

Royal Blood have several U.S. festival dates scheduled for this summer, including stops at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.
