Much has been made about the musical shift in Royal Blood's music on their upcoming Typhoons album, but there's another shift that happened within the band that made it more possible - Mike Kerr's sobriety.
The singer-bassist tells Guitar World that he feels the new record wouldn't have been possible if he hadn't gotten sober prior to recording.
He explains, “I went six or seven years being drunk every day – I’ve drunk more alcohol than most people will in their entire lives. Once I stopped, I realized that I had been missing out on a much better way of living. I don’t think it would have been possible to make the record I’ve made with the lifestyle that I was living."
