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.

Opening with “Sweet Sour,” the title track off their well-received 2012 release, guitarist Russell Marsden and bassist Emma Richardson snarled through the song with crunchy riffs that had the audience’s collective heads nodding.
With drummer Matt Hayward destroying his kit as the clouds broke and the sun shone down on the ivy-lined Cedar Street courtyard, Band of Skulls launched into what Marsden called “the loudest and fastest song we have” with “You’re Not Pretty But You’ve Got It Going On.”
Band of Skulls also ran through “I Know What I Am” and a guitar-pounding version of “Light Of The Morning” off their debut album, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, with Marsden pulling out a gold Gretsch Anniversary and a White Falcon.
They also played new single “The Devil Takes Care Of His Own.”
