Biography

When Southampton's Band Of Skulls played a sold-out gig at London's Forum in October 2010, it was a performance befitting a band honed by two years of constant touring, their sun-kissed melodies sweeter than ever, their riffs heavier and dirtier.. "In our minds, our first album [2009's debut album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey] was quite an intimate little record," says ... Read more in Amazon's Band of Skulls Store

Editorial Reviews

Their debut offers a taste of their driving guitar force, heartbreaking duets, and sun-kissed, wall of sound harmonies. Produced, recorded, and mixed by Ian Davenport (Supergrass, Badly Drawn Boy). Artwork by bassist/vocalist Emma Richardson. "Patterns" selected for Activision's Tony Hawk World Skate Game (out fall 2009). ESPN will use "I Know What I Am" in sports backgrounds. The song is also featured in the film "Whip It!" and the TV trailer for "I Love You, Man".

5.0 out of 5 stars actually, it rocks, doesn't it? November 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
London debut combines glam/psych Indie garage rock with some hard-edged guitar and
distortion-damaged blues lines in a place where melody-strewn verses collide with rumbling,
riff-driven choruses. Hanging out somewhere among White Stripes, the Kills, Duke Spirit,
Queens Of the Stone Age, Black Keys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Band of Rockers Who Just Happen To Have Skulls March 28, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Sounding like a cross between The Rolling Stones & The White Stripes, Band of Skulls is truly a product of the current alternative rock scene. They're brash, they have that dirty sound, and they're radio-friendly. But, the first thing you'll probably notice is that "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey" is truly a debut album. Every song has a different sound, and while they do share some common similarities, it feels like the band is feeling out the territory. As a result, it really feels disjointed. But the problem is, they're so good on most of the sounds. They do the dirty rock well, but they're also amazing at the slower ballads. Add to that the fact that they have duel vocalists, and there's a lot going on here. Most of it is pretty good, but not all of it works.

Highlights Include:
Light of the Morning
Death By Diamonds & Pearls
I Know What I Am
Honest
Cold Fame

Overall, if you're a fan of current alternative rock, then you should love what you find here. It sounds like a continuation of the White Stripes, and while they're unsure of their work at times, or what sound & style they should exactly be going for, if they did stay consistent, Band of Skulls really has something here. Heck, they casted off the song "Friends" which made it onto the New Moon soundtrack, and that's a great song. So if they're castoffs are that good, imagine the potential greatness of this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars BIG,STOMPIN', BLUES ROCK! June 18, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
Great band, not a bad song on the album. I am really amazed that they are still relatively unknown. $5.99?! That is a great price for so much damn good music. If you like The Black Keys, or White Stripes, you will dig this! PLUG-Check out Dan Auerbach's new album too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock is NOT dead! March 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wish to add my voice to the chorus of those who love this band. There are a lot of different and interesting things that are being done with rock, but I have not heard great and pure rock for a long time until this album.

I read that the bass player has over 15,000 albums - most vinyl - and this shows in their work as every song has a solid rock foundation, but does not ape their classic rock inspirations; instead Band of Skulls progresses rock.

So...

Great band, great vocals and harmonies, great solid music and they put on a great show.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1'st Class Rock and Roll! March 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best albums I have heard in a long time! Not a bad track, stomping rock riffs, beautiful harmony's and catchy melodies. It just gets better and better with each listen.

I saw the band last year in a small club with about 100 people, it became obvious I was watching something very special. If there is anything right with the music industry, this band is destined for great things. Rock and Roll as it should be!

5.0 out of 5 stars best cd of this year June 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
WOW! I hate predictable music. This is such a refreshing, inspired disc. I found it because of the Ford Mustang commercial. The ad featured 'Light of the Morning'. It's a great bluesy tune. There is simply NOT a bad song on this cd.
It reminds me of 11th Dream Day, Electrofixion, The Jets and Silversun Pickups. This is bright, complex and complete. What a find! Buy it Now.

By Nacho

2009's Baby Darling Doll Face Honey is the debut album for Band of Skulls. With this release, the trio (made up of Matthew Hayward on drums, Russell Marsden on guitar and vocals, and Emma Richardson on bass guitar and vocals) showed the world their incredible skill at writing powerful rock songs.

Incredible and unique rock tracks like Light of the Morning and Blood, creative song-timing concepts as showcased in Bombs and Dull Gold Heart, and the rocking and driven slow (but only by comparison) songs such as Fires and Impossible. They set a standard, a bar, that most bands would be fearful (and most often incapable) of establishing, especially on a debut album.

If you love rock music, love to turn the volume up in your car every time a song you love comes across the radio, then you're in for a treat. You'll only have to reach for that volume knob once, my friend, because once this album gets going, you'll love every minute of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars good album March 20, 2012
By Lauren
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Band of Skulls are clearly talented and I definitely recommend this album. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars was because the case is not plastic but rather a thick paper/thin cardboard. It doesn't hold up very well.
