The indie, blues rock band Band of Skulls returns to DC on Tuesday, October 4th to perform at the Black Cat.

They are touring for their latest album, By Default, their fourth album and first since 2014’s rocking Himalayan.

Band of Skulls originates from Southampton, England, and fall in step with the likes of The White Stripes and another UK counterpart, Royal Blood.

The band is Emma Richardson (vocals and bass), Russell Marsden (guitar and vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums).

I caught them at the 9:30 Club in 2014, and look forward to seeing them again. New songs like the riff happy “Bodies” and the upbeat “So Good” speak to mixing in a few new styles to their repertoire, even some that are more dance-like. Yet the classic sounds they rocked for us in previous albums remains evident in each track.

As we speak, I’m listening to the dulcet sounds of their masterly “Sweet Sour”.

Get your tickets today, before it’s too late!
