THEY'RE in demand across the globe, but home is where the heart is for Southampton's own Band of Skulls.

Members of the band, currently Russell Marsden and Emma Richardson as Matt Hayward pursued other musical adventures, will be doing a DJ set at The Joiners on Saturday ( January 28) for Club Psychedelia's night. Running off the back of 2016 album By Default, they're set to deliver the goods behind the decks to see you into the wee hours of the night.

The night also features live sets from The Strawberries and The Order. If you're a fan of rhythmic guitar, passionate vocals and rocking out you will feel right at home here!

Band of Skulls last performed in Southampton last November when they showcased their fourth studio album By Default at Engine Rooms.

"Playing the place where we grew up is really special to us," said Matt, who grew up in Bassett.

"It's special but nerve-racking. You know a lot of people, which is an added pressure. It's an interesting feeling, but it's always brilliant. We turn it into a real celebration."

The record was written and rehearsed in a rented city church and includes reverbs from the church laid down in a recording studio in Wales.

By Default is the follow up to Baby Darling Doll Face Honey (2009), Sweet Sour (2012) and Himalayan (2014).

Band of Skulls are widely considered one of the UK's best guitar bands and play worldwide.

Their music has been used for everything from Hollywood movies like The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Hangover Part II to top video games including Guitar Hero and Gran Turismo 5, via the popular TV shows Gossip Girl and Britain's Next Top Model.

They've appeared on Later...with Jools Holland and were the subject of a Channel 4 documentary showcasing their journey from jamming in Southampton bars to global tours.

Band of Skulls also managed to fit in a Glastonbury slot and supporting Stereophonics at Cardiff City Stadium around UK tour dates last year.

* Band of Skulls will also be performing at an all-star benefit gig for Delays frontman Greg Gilbert in Southampton next month.

Cavalry, which will take place at The 1865 in Southampton on Friday February 17, will feature acoustic sets from the band along with indie rockers Mystery Jets.

And Delays themselves will make a rare appearance on stage with Primal Scream bassist Simone Marie representing close friend Greg who is currently undergoing chemotherapy alongside the remainder of the band Aaron, Colin and Rowly.
