Band of Skulls' new single, Sweet Sour, will be released on May 7th, 2012, through Electric Blues Recordings. It is the third single from the band's second studio album of the same name, which was released in February 2012. Upon the release of the album, it was the highest charting new entry, coming in at number 14 on the UK Album Charts in its first week.
The video for Sweet Sour was shot in black and white and sees four young children meeting up in a small town and breakdancing.
Band of Skulls - Russell Marsden (guitar, vocals); Emma Richardson (bass, vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums) - formed in 2008 and released their first studio album, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, in 2009. It was produced by Ian Davenport, who has worked with Badly Drawn Boy and Supergrass. The album itself received a positive reception from critics.
They teamed up with Ian again to work on Sweet Sour; the album was mixed by Nick Launay (Nick Cave / PIL / Yeah Yeah Yeahs) in Los Angeles. To promote the album, Band of Skulls went on tour with the Black Keys in January 2012, before embarking on their own tour. They will play their last two dates at the start of March 2012. Band of Skulls can also be seen at many festivals this year: Coachella; SXSW; T in the Park and Isle of Wight.
