Rock music can weirdly be restrictive. There’s a myriad of reasons why - a major one being how purists hold firm ideas of what a band is allowed to do with their music. Luckily for us, Southampton-based Band of Skulls couldn’t give a shit about expectations. Their latest album, Love Is All You Love (out now) showcases how vital and creative a band can be on their fifth album. Beautifully, the band's fans have responded incredibly to the album and we sent Ken Grand-Pierre to link up with Russell Marsden (vocals/guitars) and Emma Richardson (vocals/bass) to talk about why the experience of making this album differed from their previous four albums.

"We wanted to keep it powerful and raw, but to also explore the strengths of the electronic music world."
