Band of Skulls have been confirmed as the main support act to The Black Keys across their early February tour. UK headline shows will follow throughout February and March.
The band have also announced plans to release the first single from their, as yet un-titled, second album. The Devil Takes Care Of His Own will be released through Electric Blues Recordings on 4th December 2011 and will be available as a download and as a limited 7” picture disc.
A rather unique kung-fu themed video has also been produced to accompany the single.
Band of Skulls’ second album was recorded at Rockfield studios in Wales with producer Ian Davenport and mixed in Los Angeles and New York by Nick Launey (Nick Cave / PIL / Yeah Yeah Yeahs). It is due for release in early 2012.
