There couldn’t be a bigger boost to a band’s career right now than being part of the soundtrack for a film in the Twilight series. Brit band Band of Skulls did have a track on the New Moon soundtrack. You know all the Twilight fans are going to buy it and be exposed to your music. And this is big stuff for the band from Southampton that formed just over a three years ago.
The alternative rock trio, Emma Richardson (bass/vocals), Russell Marsden (guitar/vocals), Matt Hayward (drums) formed after meeting in college. After releasing their debut album entitled “Baby Darling Doll Face Honey” in the spring of 2009 they began to tour and have done so relentlessly since.
Building on the popularity and noteriety gained from the New Moon soundtrack their music was used in the trailer for The Hangover, a Ford commerical, on the television shows Friday Night Lights and Gossip Girls, and for the FIFA 2010 World Cup. They even played Lollapalooza and SXSW last year.
