Royal Blood – Lights Out (Official Video) from Royal Blood


“Lights Out” is a song by English hard rock band Royal Blood and was written by band members Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher with Bass Drum of Death frontman John Barrett.

“Lights-Out” was produced by Jolyon Thomas with Kerr and Thatcher and featured on the band’s 2017 second album, “How Did We Get So Dark?”

“Lights-Out” was released as the first single from the album on April 14, 2017, reaching number 96 on the UK Singles Chart and topping the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart.

Royal Blood wrote “Lights Out” during their tour in the United States with support act Bass Drum of Death – someone Kerr called “really good friends of ours”.

After the two bands had been sharing ideas, Bass Drum of Death’s frontman John Barrett co-wrote “Lights Out”, with Kerr crediting him as “a big part of that tune coming together”. The band performed the song live for Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 9, 2017. They also played their 2014 single “Figure It Out.”

The music video for “Lights Out” was also released on April 13, 2017. Directed by The Sacred Egg and produced by Tom Birmingham and Natalie Arnett of Riff Raff Films, it features the band “performing the song in an empty room that slowly fills with water”, after which “a horde of bodies burst out of invisible pools on the floor, ceiling and walls … 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”, according to Rolling Stone writer Jon Blistein.

Upon its release, “Lights Out” entered the UK Singles Chart at number 96.

From RollingStone.com:

“British rock duo Royal Blood unveiled a striking video for “Lights Out,” the lead single off their upcoming album, How Did We Get So Dark?, 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.”

Royal Blood – Lights Out (Official Video) Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
Every time I’m with it alone
It picks me up
You just send me down
I can feel it rushing under my skin
You’re a cage won’t you let me in?
On my toes
Lock the door
Pretty face
Through the walls
Don’t know if I’d be so sure again

[Chorus]
My eyes are still burning red
So turn the lights out
You’re not so hard to forget
With all the lights out

[Verse 2]
Every time I’m stuck in the ground
Spin me round, won’t you spin me round
You’re a void, a crack in the mirror
See me now, if you could see me now
You slipped through
The night
Then walked out
Skin tight
But you don’t matter that much to me
No you don’t matter that much to me

[Chorus]
My eyes are still burning red
So turn the lights out
You’re not so hard to forget
With all the lights out
So turn the lights out
Just turn the lights out

My eyes are still burning red
So turn the lights out
You’re not so hard to forget
With all the lights out
