Band Of Skulls has announced intimate album preview shows at London Electric Ballroom on May 19, Paris Le Trabendo (May 24) and Amsterdam Paradiso (May 25), alongside warm-up shows at Guildford Boiler Room (April 28), 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 their recently announced new album, By Default, their first to be released through BMG Recordings on May 27. Lead single ‘Killer’ was premiered on Radio 1 by Annie Mac and is streaming now and available as an instant grat upon album pre-order with iTunes.
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.
