Never miss another 'Band of Skulls' show
Band of Skulls + Folks + John J Presley
Band Of Skulls have announced details of an Autumn tour including London's Brixton Academy show on December 7th. These will be the band's biggest U.K. headline shows to date.
The Southampton-based trio formerly known as Fleeing New York before changing their name in 2008. Band of Skulls are a garage rock sensation formed by three college friends: Russell Marsden (guitar and vocals), Emma Richardson (bass and vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums)

Folks conjure up a powerful blend of soulful melodies with intelligent left-field lyrics, laced with psychedelic guitar and a dose of pop sensibility.
Bringing together classic songwriting with emotive vocals and irresistible melodies, Folks make music to be listened to and enjoyed over and over. The band were formed when guitarist and writer Michael Beasley hooked up with vocalist Scott Anderson, and they relocated to the US to record what would end up being their debut album, to be released early 2012.
On their return, the duo pulled together a full band (Thom Fripp – lead guitar, Harry Gumery – bass, Wil Akroyd - keyboards and Elliot Barlow –drums) which ensured this group could also let rip live.

Citing influences from Tom Waits, The Kills, Josh T Pearson & Duke Garwood, John Presley & his band conjure up their own concoction of Blues with a Folk Noir attention to detail. Live, Presley is a powerhouse of fuzz, tone and grandeur alongside moments of delicate song writing and controlled performance. Described by BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart as fulfilling “music’s need for a new dark lord”, Presley has also seen praise from The Guardian, Q Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine, The Independent, The Quietus and many more.
