Earlier this year, the band released their Richard X-produced album, Love Is All You Love, which is out now on So Recordings. Classic Rock proclaims the "British blues rockers' fifth is prowling pop perfection...the most harmonious clash of muck and melody in recent history," while KCRW adds, "['Cool Your Battles' is] full of swagger-this anti-war song tells us to stop spending energy fighting and do something positive." Glide Magazine furthers, "In response to depressing and anxious times, the band decided to provide with its music the kind of euphoria that is in short supply in society. The result is the poppiest Band of Skulls album to date, and although Love Is All You Love doesn't have the same rock edge as its predecessors, it is not lacking in hooks."
Since 2009, Band Of Skulls has released four studio albums while building a reputation as a phenomenal live act. They have since performed on "The Late Show With David Letterman," "Late Night with Seth Meyers" and "Last Call with Carson Daly" and have toured with the likes of Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens Of The Stone Age and The Black Keys.
