Following last year’s acclaimed album KIN and November's EP Serenade, The Duke Spirit march on with poignant
new album Sky Is Mine, released on 18th August 2017 via Ex Voto Records.
Produced by the band themselves, and mixed by Bruno Ellingham (Massive Attack), it also features guest vocals by

Continuing to prove themselves as one of the UK’s most enduring and distinctive rock acts, The Duke Spirit are known for their captivating live shows and will continue to hypnotise listeners with the sweeping power of Sky Is Mine.
