Band of Skulls – Academy 2, Dublin

Band of Skulls have announced a Dublin date at the Academy 2 on Thursday 18 February. Tickets are on sale now priced €13.50 inclusive of booking fee.

The three members of Band Of Skulls, Russell Marsden (guitar & vocals), Emma Richardson (bass & vocals) & Matt Hayward (drums), first met at college and quickly discovered that having two lead singers and three songwriters in a band was always going to present unlimited possibilities.

The band quickly established themselves in both the music and art community with a series of culturally inspired club nights in Southampton, London and further a field in Moscow & Tokyo.

The album, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey was produced, recorded and mixed by Ian Davenport (Supergrass, Badly Drawn Boy) and mixed at the legendary House of Blues studio in Los Angeles and perfectly captures the band’s aptitude for heartbreaking duets and sun-kissed, Wall of Sound harmonies.

This summer has seen the band receive glowing reviews for their live show, most notably at Suffolk’s Latitude Festival, where they were the pick of the Guardian’s -Must See’ new bands.
