dare you to watch this preview clip of BAND OF SKULLS new album and not pee yourself with excitement. The Southampton trio have just announced that their third album, ‘Himalayan’ will be released in Spring 2014 and we can not wait. If that’s not enough, the band are playing a headline gig at Bloomsbury Ballroom on 20th November ahead of their Wembley Arena gig with Queens of the Stone age.

If you’ve made it through the video with dignity intact, think about this – Nick Laundry, producer of albums by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds worked on it. And you can listen to the first single ‘Asleep at the Wheel’ below.

We caught up with bassest Emma Richardson a while back, have a little look at how that went here. The band ahve also just announced a show at Bloomsbury Ballroom on November 20th, tickets on sale…NOW!

Phew! After all that, we need a little lie down. And a change of trousers.
