Hot off the back of their lauded European tour supporting Queens Of The Stone Age, rock heavyweights Band Of Skulls today announce their own headline tour of the UK and Europe. Tickets are available to core fanbase from 27th November, and early UK fans will also have the opportunity to pre-order a signed copy of ‘Himalayan’ as part of a ticket bundle.

The dates will give fans a chance to hear new material from eagerly anticipated third album ‘Himalayan’, which is due for release on 31st March through Electric Blues Recordings. Working with seminal producer Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), ‘Himalayan’ sees Band of Skulls combining trademark raucous blues riffs, masterful musicianship and faultless vocal harmonies in an album full of raw power and beautiful melodies. Thundering into life with primitive drum beats and a heavy rhythmic pulse, lead single ‘Asleep at the Wheel’ is a full-on joyride of an opener with the band's guitar work and vocals at their blistering best. It is loud, soulful and boisterous, a body of work to cement their place at rock’s top table.
