Hey SKAM Fans,
Well the summer is here and what a great one it is shaping up to be.
Your favorite 3 piece have been rocking hard all year in support of our debut album ‘Its Come to This’.
This last 12 months have seen us play to thousands of new ears, hundreds of thousands of miles and a shit load of beer.
But the time has come to put our heads together and decide on what is going to be next..
Last week SKAM performed at the ‘Simon Says’ festival in Leicester and the epic Steelhouse Festival in Wales. These 2 shows mark the end of the ICTT campaign and we want to thank everyone for their continued support, for every show for every note you guys have been there encouraging to strive on. And for that we want to thank you.
But this is also the beginning. over the next couple of months we are going to take a bit of time out from the live circuit to finish writing and start pre production of our second full length album. and we couldn’t be more excited.
Some of you may have heard the odd tit-bit and the feedback has been great! I promise you this one is going to be a game changer!
Keep your eyes and ears peeled for new announcements as they happen.
We cant stay away for long and we will be announcing some dates for the tail end of this year. We would love to see you there!
Keep rocking and we will see you all soon with some big announcements.
Unfortunately due to circumstance out of our control all the shows with Electric Mary have been cancelled.
If you have bought tickets please contact your ticket provider for a full refund.
Keep you eyes peeled as we will be heading out to do our own Shows later this year!
We can only apologise and promise we will be out there Rocking with you guys very soon!

We had a really pleasant surprise yesterday.
Our very own Bass Viking was digging into the latest edition of BASS GUITAR magazine, issue 87.
After some time dribbling over the latest Stingrays, Matt stumbled on an amazing review of our Debut Album!
The mag rewarded ‘It’s come to this’ 5/5 and 3/5 for Bass (keep Practicing Matt lol)
Thanks Very much Guys! you can buy a copy of the magazine here: http://www.bassguitarmagazine.com/
This album from Leicester power trio SKAM is sure to please aficionados of 80′s rock and metal. With song titles like “Soliders of Rock”, “Dead from the waist down” and “The touch of death” the boys aren’t exactly shying away from their heavy metal heritage, and nor should they. What you’ve got here is 10 tracks of unapologetically muscular rock that, while maybe uncool to the NME crowd, deserves to be heard by a much wider audience. The intro to album opener”Soliders of Rock” has echoes of Priest and Dio, before the guys kick into a chugging groove with a contemporary edge. The musicianship is top notch throughout, especially Ray “Xray” Peverill’s frantic drumming and the tasty guitar work of Steve Hill. Bassist Matt Gilmore keeps things tight and solid, but gets to step out on the intro to “Massacre” with a meandering bass line that would make Geezer Butler proud. There’s no filler here, just a great album from start to finish that should appeal to any fans of melodic hard rock.
