Band of Skulls’ “By Default” Features a “Trick Title” and Their “Heaviest Song”

Band of Skulls’ “By Default” Features a “Trick Title” and Their “Heaviest Song”

Credit: Andy CotterillBand of Skulls‘ latest album is called By Default, but the album does not find the British rockers in default mode. Instead, the group made a conscious effort to expand upon the foundation of the bluesy, garage rock sound that they built over their past three albums.

“On paper, Band of Skulls ‘by default’ is like, ‘Yeah, OK. It’s gonna be bluesy, garage,’ you know, what people would expect,” frontman Russell Marsden tells ABC Radio. “So we just thought it was a little bit of fun to sort of have a trick title.”

Band of Skulls has a few tricks up their sleeve on By Default, including the track “Killer,” which Marsden describes as the “heaviest song on the record.”

“It’s the most extreme one, and it’s technical,” says Marsden. “Performing it live is a real challenge. But I think once you’ve done a song like that, you open up that landscape to revisit perhaps in the future. It makes you think about songwriting a bit differently, I think.”

While Band of Skulls experimented quite a bit on By Default, the group still wanted to make music that felt true to their identity.

“It’s interesting to change the formula just a little bit and see what you can achieve,” Marsden tells ABC Radio. “But underneath it all, we try and be lots of different bands every song, but it all comes out the same as us. You can’t escape your own sound, you have to embrace it.”

“We could’ve made a much more extreme album in any direction,” he adds. “But this record really is just a beginning.” 

By Default is out now.
