BAND OF SKULLS have announced a bunch of U.K. dates for the autumn.
The shows come at the end of a busy summer for the Southampton trio, beginning with the release of their fourth album By Default and a raft of festival dates, including Glastonbury. With a sold-out London date already scheduled for the Electric Ballroom on 19 May, the autumn dates feature a show at the Roundhouse on 26 October.
By Default was recorded at the famed Rockfield Studios near Monmouth and was produced by PIXIES producer Gil Norton.
“It’s definitely a new era,” says guitarist 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.”
Watch a video for the new song 'Erounds' filmed live at Rockfield.
By Default is out through BMG on 27 May and is available to pre-order now on vinyl, CD and download.
