New Album and U.S. Tour for rockers Band Of Skulls

BAND OF SKULLS CONFIRM SPRING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR – NEW ALBUM TITLED HIMALAYAN NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER, SET TO BE RELEASED APRIL 1

Band of Skulls will embark on an extensive North American tour this spring.  The North American shows are in celebration of the acclaimed U.K. trio’s forthcoming album, Himalayan, which will be released April 1 and is now available for pre-order: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/band-of-skulls/id309586658?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 (Electric Blues Recordings via Kobalt Label Services).

Already receiving critical acclaim, NME selected the debut single, “Asleep At The Wheel,” as one of their “20 Essential New Tracks,” praising, “Like The Black Keys at their meanest, it stomps away before propelling itself into a riff of Black Sabbath standards…” The official music video for the single can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRm7OS258DU

Additionally, a new video for the album track, “Nightmares,” recently premiered on Vevo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxntDF0-5Uk
Produced by Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), the album was recorded during the summer of 2013 in Richmond, London at State of the Ark studios.


The new album follows 2012’s Sweet Sour, which debuted at #14 on the U.K. album chart and received widespread acclaim— NME praised, “Proficient, precision-executed blues-rock,” while Consequence of Sound praised, “sizzles with muscle-driven, sludgy honest-to-goodness rock.” In the years since, the band has toured alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, The Dead Weather, Queens of the Stone Age and Muse and sold-out two headlining shows at London’s The Roundhouse and Brixton Academy.
