The phrase “power trio” brings to mind iconic groups like Cream, Green Day and Nirvana. Those worried that this unique brand of gritty rock music is dying out need only give Band of Skulls a listen to know that all is well. This British threesome has the grunge and edge, as well as the lyricism, to bring to mind the rock n’ roll greats, but also the originality to feel like something fresh and totally of the moment. 2012 will be a big year for the group, with an international tour kicking off on January 27th, and their new album dropping on February 7th in the U.S. (February 21st everywhere else).
