Forthcoming album By Default – May 27, 2016


Band Of Skulls has premiered the video for new single ‘Killer’, as directed by Yonatan Weisberg. Watch here:

‘Killer’ is lifted from the band’s forthcoming fourth album By Default, out May 27 via BMG Recordings, and is streaming now and available as an instant grat upon album pre-order with iTunes.

The band have confirmed they will perform at Glastonbury Festival (slot tbc) in addition to recently announced intimate album preview shows, including London Electric Ballroom on May 19 which sold out in 3 days, Paris Le Trabendo (May 24) and Amsterdam Paradiso (May 25), alongside warm-up shows at Guildford Boiler Room (April 28, Sold Out), Stoke Sugarmill (April 29). The dates are the latest to be added to a run of shows, which includes festival slots at the likes of The Great Escape, Live At Leeds and Liverpool Soundcity. The shows – for which the band will be joined by touring member, Portico Quartet’s Milo Fitzpatrick – will be the first airing of new material from By Default.

 Produced by Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters, Patti Smith) and recorded in Rockfield Studios, By Default is the sound of a group on the sharpest form of their career, more engaged and focused than they’ve ever been. The follow up to 2014’s Himalayan, from the English trio – made up of Russell Marsden (guitar, vocals), Emma Richardson (bass, vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums) – the new record came about via a conscious decision from the band to take a step back from their relentless world-wide touring schedule, having never spent more than a month off the road in the last 2 years.

“It’s definitely a new era,” says Russell Marsden. “The first three records were like a trilogy, a piece of work in of themselves. We wanted to do those things, and we did them all. We took a breath, took a look at what we’d done, and started from scratch again.”
