Southampton-based rock trio Band Of Skulls are back with their Gil Norton-produced fourth studio album By Default.

Live: Ellie Goulding & Friends @ Streets Of London.

English singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ellie Goulding hosted a unique evening of acoustic music at West London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, sharing the stage with a host of acts from rockers Band Of Skulls to the delicate-voiced Birdy in aid of the homeless awareness charity Streets Of London.
