Band of Skulls: Summer Tour


Band of Skulls
Southampton, U.K. newcomers Band of Skulls will hit the road this summer for their first national U.S. tour. The retro rockers begin their tour July 23 in Portland, OR and will make stops at the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, WA on July 24, Spaceland in Los Angeles, CA on July 28 and Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL on August 8. Band of Skulls will criss-cross the U.S. as their debut album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey is released on July 28 via Shangri-La Music.

Baby Darling Doll Face Honey was produced, recorded and mixed by Ian Davenport (Supergrass, Badly Drawn Boy) and recorded at Courtyard Studios in Oxfordshire.

The three members of Band of Skulls, Russell Marsden (guitar & vocals), Emma Richardson (bass & vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums), first met at college and quickly discovered that having two lead singers and three songwriters in a band was always going to present unlimited possibilities. As a result of the early enthusiasm surrounding the band, Band of Skulls was featured as iTunes Single of The Week in all iTunes stores globally with their debut single "I Know What I Am" (listen below). The song garnered rave reviews from new fans around the world and was downloaded thousands of times.
