Band of Skulls have announced a new album for Spring 2014 titled “Himalayan” and while I was a huge fan of their debut effort “Baby Darling Doll Face Honey” their second record “Sweet Sour” seemed a little more toned down and didn’t really grab me the way I had hoped it would. The band has now released their first song from the upcoming LP and in the process have sent my hopes/expectations skyrocketing. “Asleep At The Wheel” is everything I first loved about Band Of Skulls with riffs aplenty and a charging beat that you could easily ride into battle. The male-female vocals have always worked for the band and that dynamic hasn’t been lost a bit. Produced by Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds),”AATW” teases that big sound could be the order of the day and knowing what Band Of Skulls are capable of when they really let loose, this bodes very well. Stream it below and get hyped.
