'The Devil Takes Care Of His Own'

Band Of Skulls have unveiled the video for 'The Devil Takes Care Of His Own' - the first track to be taken from their second album.

Rock music lacks an edge right now. It seems that the fetid, un-tamed, hedonistic spirit which fuelled The Rolling Stones, The Faces, The Stooges and more has been replaced by a bank balance.

However Band Of Skulls are working to change this. Debut album 'Baby Darling Doll Face Honey' was a blast of unrestrained energy, matching retro thrills with a sense of walking on the wild side.

Retreating to work on the follow up, Band Of Skulls have been silent for much of the year. With their second album due for release early in 2012, the Southampton band have decided to break cover.

Taken from the as yet un-titled album, 'The Devil Takes Care Of His Own' is a dollop of big, dumb, fun. Backed by a kung fu themed video, the single will be released on December 4th through Electric Blues Recordings.
