Rudimental: Ten Pints Of Blood Went Into ‘Home’ LP
EXCLUSIVE! Plus the band reckon ‘Waiting All Night’ is a sure-fire No.1…

Rudimental have revealed that “ten pints” of blood, sweat and tears have gone into their forthcoming debut album Home.
Speaking exclusively to MTV News minutes before they went onstage at Snowbombing Festival last week, Amir and Piers took the time to talk about their first major album and their brand new single Waiting All Night.
Piers told us of the fortcoming LP: “We actually were writing a lot of it before Feel That Love came out. We were in the studio and we’ve been writing a lot of it on tour and recording instruments on the road.”
Amir added: “A lot of the sounds you hear on the record are actually sounds that we, well its our recording from live so you actually hear a bit of crowd noise sometimes as well in the background – not intentionally it’s just there if you listen very carefully.
“We’re all about positivity and energy on the stage and we’re trying to bring that to the album so we actually had that buzz when we come off stage , that’s the best time to make a track and put it down you know so hopefully you can feel that from listening to the record you get the energy of Rudimental as a carnival piece on stage.”
We also asked the pair about the video for their latest single Waiting All Night Ft. Ella Eyre, which tells the story of BMX rider Kurt Yaeger, who lost his lower leg in a motorcycle accident in 2006.
Inspired by the Paralympic Games in London last year Amir said: “It’s close to us ‘cos we’re in Hackney so it was a big part of our lives for a few months.
“It’s actually a true story. A lot of the footage that you see was filmed already.”
Piers added: “It linked with Not Giving In and Feel The Love about reality and overcoming struggles so yeah it was all shot in the style of home footage and it was really cool.”
“He lost his leg in a crash,’ Amir added. “So we had to film that bit but there’s some truth in there. Just like our other videos there’s no actors.”
They also reckon they’re in with a good chance with securing a second No.1 single with Waiting All Night.
“YES! It’s gonna be number one!” cried Piers.
“Do you know what, we’re an album act,” Amir expanded. “We are home at the festival, that’s why we called it ‘Home’. We feel at home on stage so if people buy our album and they listen to our music as a whole that’s so much more important to us than the singles but we love bringing singles out.
“It’s not something that we’re against, we didn’t aim for any number ones, it’s not how we did it but it just happened to blow up.”
