Casper Skulls

Known for their studied sound and supercharged live performances, Casper Skulls have been hailed by the likes of FADER, MTV and Billboard. On the back of their live shows opening for Thurston Moore, Julie Ruin, PUP, Hop Along, Speedy Ortiz, and Charly Bliss, they’re considered one of the most exciting emerging bands in Toronto. If you’ve been paying attention to Casper Skulls for the past six years then you’re no doubt already aware that they’ve had the air of a band that was going to grow up very quickly from the beginning. And grown up they have on Knows No Kindness, their sophomore full-length album to be released in November 2021 by Next Door Records. 

There was already a palpable distance, granted, between the scrappy young noiseniks who first turned heads with their debut single, “King of Gold,” in 2015 and 2016’s artfully buzzing Lips and Skull EP, and later the more contemplative and confidently nuanced Casper Skulls responsible for 2017’s full-length, Mercy Works.

But on Knows No Kindness, Casper Skulls turn into the enchanting and otherworldly, but also unexpectedly worldly, electric-folk outfit they hinted that they might eventually become during Mercy Works’ quieter moments, right before your eyes and seemingly overnight.
