Band of Skulls Premieres Video for “Black Magic” + on U.S. tour now!

The video for “Black Magic,” off Band of Skulls’ critically acclaimed album By Default, is premiering today via Popmatters. Of the video, Popmatters hails, “Band of Skulls always keep it real and true to the roots of rock and roll with their heavily blues-influenced sound that’s thoroughly modern.” Watch/share here: http://bit.ly/2caZTeZ.

The band are currently in the midst of a North American tour, with further stops at San Francisco’s The Fillmore, Los Angeles’ Wiltern and New York City’s Terminal 5 among many others.

In addition, the band are now confirmed to appear on NBC’s “Last Call with Carson Daly” on October 5 and they recently performed “Killer” on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Produced by Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters, Patti Smith) and recorded at Rockfield Studios, By Default finds the band—Emma Richardson (bass, vocals), Russell Marsden (guitar, vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums)—following up on their acclaimed 2014 release, Himalayan, by making a conscious decision to take a step back from their relentless world-wide touring schedule, having never spent more than a month off the road in the last two years.

“We went back to square one,” says Hayward. In the church—between visits from the vicar, bringing tea and biscuits on his trolley—they found the new songs in hours of woodshedding on ratty old practice amps. “It’s definitely a new era,” says Marsden. “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.”
