Band Of Skulls have confirmed their fourth album will be released in May.
The Southampton blues rock three-piece will issue By Default on May 27 via BMG. The follow-up to 2014’s Himalayan is produced by Pixies collaborator Gil Norton and was recorded at Rockfield Studios.
They’ve also made the track Killer available to stream.
Guitarist Russell Marsden says: “It’s definitely a new era. The first three records were like a trilogy, a piece of work in of themselves.
“We wanted to do those things, and we did them all. We took a breath, took a look at what we’d done, and started from scratch again.”
