Band To Kick Off U.S. Tour On The Eve Of SXSW 2012

Tour Will Include Stops At This Year’s Coachella

January 2012 – Band of Skulls will now release their highly anticipated second album Sweet Sour exclusively on iTunes on February 7th via their own label, Electric Blues Recordings under exclusive license in the U.S. to Vagrant Records. The iTunes special release of Sweet Sour will include the bonus track “Such A Fool.”

The following week, the standard version of Sweet Sour will be available everywhere on February 14th. Sweet Sour is the follow-up to their debut album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey which was universally embraced by the U.S. media with early supporters at Entertainment Weekly naming them “Your Next Favorite Band.”

Sweet Sour most recently landed on Spin’s 25 Winter Albums You Gotta Hear! where they went on to note, “Sweet Sour is the rare modern-rock album that can span cliques or generations, uniting hippies and hipsters…” SPIN

Following the success of Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, the band retreated to a studio in Norfolk UK to begin writing Sweet Sour. They returned to their home studio in Southampton to start the recording which they completed in Wales at Rockfield Studios. Sweet Sour was produced by Ian Davenport (Supergrass, Badly Drawn Boy) and mixed by Nick Launay (Grinderman, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire). Please see below for the complete Sweet Sour track listing.

On March 13th the band returns to Austin, TX on the eve of the SXSW Music Festival with a show at Antone’s to kick off their first U.S. tour in support of Sweet Sour. The band’s live show has been a constant highlight at previous festivals by the likes of Rolling Stone (Best of SXSW) and SPIN (Best of Coachella). The band will return to both must-see events this Spring and will surely not disappoint. Please see below for complete tour itinerary.
