BAND OF SKULLS
Hailing from Southampton, England this power trio has been shredding and gaining popularity since their single “I Know What I Am” became a huge hit back in 2009. Since then they have toured with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Dead Weather and Muse to name a few but now THEY’RE the headliners. Their third full-length album, Himalayan (and their first since 2012) will be available for purchase March 31st. For now you can check out their video for the LP’s first single that’s been pleasing ear drums since it’s release last month.
These SoCal natives are living the transplant life in NYC and spreading their unique brand of surfer psych-indie rock (with deeper than average lyrics) from coast to coast. Their self-titled debut album drops April 22nd but you can get a free sample below.
