Band of Skulls join line-up for Rock & roll charity gig


by Matt Parker

Hot on the heels of A Peaceful Noise’s first line-up announcement, the Nick Alexander Memorial Trust is very excited to reveal that Band of Skulls will be joining us for a special acoustic set at ULU Live at on November 25th. 

Commenting on their appearance, Band of Skulls’ Russel and Emma said: “We met Nick when we toured with the Black Keys in 2012, so we’re honoured to be involved with such a great cause. We’re excited to be playing with a string quartet and to be adding Band of Skulls’ sound to A Peaceful Noise.”

Hailing from Southampton, Band of Skulls have forged a singular path in rock n roll releasing four acclaimed studio albums that have made them a live favourite across the country. For their appearance at a Peaceful Noise, the band will be playing as an acoustic duo featuring Russell Marsden and Emma Richardson, augmented by the lush textures of a string quartet.

Adding a touch of highbrow culture and something very special to a line-up that includes Frank Turner and False Heads, Band of Skulls are guaranteed to be unmissable.

When Nick Alexander was killed in the terrorist attack on the Bataclan Theatre last November, his family were overwhelmed by the response from the music community.

A Peaceful Noise is their response to try and harness that positivity – to pay tribute to the Paris victims with a positive message of understanding, to celebrate music’s unique ability to unite people as equals, and to raise money for two music related charities paying forward the love and goodwill within the community.
