Band of Skulls back for Splendour 2012?

Indie garage rock trio Band of Skulls, who visited us for Splendour in the Grass 2010, look set to return again this year to tour their new album, Sweet Sour..

This morning FasterLouder spoke to the band’s drummer Matt Hayward who revealed that the group is “desperate to get back to Australia. We’ve only been there once and we were blown away…it’s bizarre going to a country you’ve never been to, on the other side of the world, and people turning up to your shows and knowing your songs. We’ve had such massive love from Australia…we’re desperate to get back.”

While Hayward was cagey on the specific details of their planned tour (simply noting “I know we’re coming in summer, which is your winter…but that’s all I know”) it sounds as though a return to play at Splendour in the Grass is a very likely prospect.

We may be two months away from the official announcement, however Splendour speculation is already ramping up. Last Friday a swag of big names, including Sigur Ros, The Cardigans and Green Day, were added to the rumour mill when Summer Sonic announced their 2012 lineup.
