Band Of Skulls Release Video For “Sweet Sour”

By on February 10, 2012

“Sweet Sour is the rare modern-rock album that can span cliques or generations,
uniting hippies and hipsters…”
– SPIN (25 Winter Albums You Gotta Hear!)
“…a gritty burner that sounds like voodoo Kyuss.” – Prefix
February 7th will be a big day for fans of UK rockers Band of Skulls, as it marks
not only the exclusive itunes release date of their highly anticipated new album
Sweet Sour, but also sees the video premiere for their new single of the same
name. The video, which features a gang of ‘rough-around-the-edges’ kids
wreaking havoc in their dreary town, is a perfect representation of the dirty
blues-inspired rock of the track.
The iTunes exclusive release of Sweet Sour will be released via their own label,
Electric Blues Recordings under exclusive license in the U.S. to Vagrant Records
and will include the bonus track “Such A Fool”. The full physical release of the
record will follow suit the week after, with a release date of February 14th. Sweet
Sour will be released with great anticipation, as Band of Skulls’ debut Baby Darling
Doll Face Honey was embraced by fans and the media worldwide, even leading to
Entertainment Weekly naming Band of Skulls “Your Next Favorite Band”. If the
early reactions to Sweet Sour are any indication, neither the fans nor the media
will be let down.
The band is also gearing up for their upcoming tour with We Are Augustines,
starting March 13th in Austin, TX at Antone’s. Band of Skulls’ live show has been
a constant highlight at previous festivals, having been named “Best of SXSW” by
Rolling Stone and “Best of Coachella” by SPIN. With a new record under their
belt, this tour is sure not to disappoint their ever-growing legion of supporters.
