English alt-rock group Band of Skulls is coming to den Atelier on Friday as part of their European tour.
Fresh from supporting Queens Of the Stone Age on tour across the continent, Band Of Skulls is back for their own moment in the spotlight, playing material from new album Himalayan.
Released on March 31, their third and latest album was produced by Nick Launay of Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs and Arcade Fire fame and is proof of the band’s musical prowess. The album sees Band of Skulls combining its trademark bluesy hooks and androgynous vocals into songs bursting with power and masterful musicianship.
The Guardian called the band “adept at weaving a killer riff into a big tune” with songs such as ‘Asleep at the Wheel’ and ‘Hoochie Coochie’ being what they described as “postmodern glam stomps that should fill indie dance floors like the Black Keys do.”
Little more proof is needed to show that this band is at the top of its’ game: this concert looks set to be just as ‘killer’ as the band’s own riffs.
