The Band of Skulls released their third album Himalayan earlier this year and amongst the accolades it garnered, it heralded a new step in the life of the Skulls as they took their place as one of the most dynamic, exciting and truly epic rock bands out there right now.
Their third album sees them up things and taking their rock n roll sound to the next level – ambitious, awe-inspiring and gargantuan in every sense. It is an album that lives up to its ambitious title; just check out lead single Nightmares for a atster of what they’re all about.
Luckily, too, for us especially, the threesome – comprising guitarist and vocalist Russell Marsden, bassist Emma Richardson and drummer Matt Hayward – have become a fearsome live ace to boot. Put these two together and you have a show you should move heaven and earth to get to. Believe us, the Skulls are headed right to the top – they are going to be one of the classics of the future.
And if we haven’t whet your appetite yet, there is the mouth-watering proposition of the ace double-headed support. First up is Brisbane-bred party-starters DZ Deathrays, touring in support of their latest riff-tastic beast of a record Black Rat which picks up where Bloodstreams left off.
After them is London-based, Japanese-born acid rock noisemongers Bo Ningen, who are very much on the ascendency and out there hitting the road with their third long player, the subtly titled III, in their back pocket.
