For such a fledgling group, Band of Skulls had a posh spot Sunday afternoon at Coachella.
The British trio played the Main Stage at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Calif., and the audience couldn’t have been more receptive to their hard rocking sound.
With their sophomore full-length album, Sweet Sour, out this year, Band of Skulls has already found willing followers of such cuts as “The Devil Takes Care of His Own,” “Bruises” and its title track.
But a solid measure of their U.S. fanbase came during their finale, “Death By Diamonds and Pearls.” The epic song had the sun-heated crowd pumping their fists in agreement to Matt Hayward’s pounding drums and Russell Marsden’s guitar wizardry.
