SKULL

Leeds quartet SKULL are an alternative rock band that produce heavy riffs and high octane solos with the echoing bellows of a melancholic fabulist. The band release their debut single, RPM, on 19 November with a single launch the same night at the 360 Club at Leeds Library.

SKULL recently formed from the ashes of a previous Leeds band, a band renowned for their highly charged and ferocious live performances. This, however, is one step further. SKULL have taken all they’ve learned; all the power they’ve harnessed before; all their experience, not to mention a dark humour, and created something special. The first of many special moments to be released carefully and with consideration.

RPM is barely three minutes long but stuffed to the brim with a thunderous rhythm, mesmerising guitars and a vocal that, despite its relative restraint, could and probably does strip paint from a distance. It’s as exciting as anything we’re likely to hear this year. Their debut live appearance at the 360 Club on 19 November is destined to be a sweaty, possibly messy, but certainly memorable night.

Carving out a path that has led to their own blend of alternative rock and doom-blues noise, Leeds quartet SKULL produce heavy riffs and high octane solos with the echoing bellows of a melancholic fabulist. The band release their debut single, RPM, on 19 November with a single launch the same night at the 360 Club at Leeds Library.

… An absolute head banging banger; lulling you into a false sense of security with its down tempo before repeatedly slamming your head into a rhythmic bounce that leaves you feeling both exhausted and satisfied …” LEEDS MUSIC SCENE
