UK based, power trio SKAM have announced that there have signed a multi-year management deal with TMR Band Management and prepare for a new album in 2017.

SKAM are deep into plans to release their as yet untitled third album as a follow on to their acclaimed 2011 debut, It’s Come To This and breakthrough second album, 2014’s Peacemaker.

Singer/Guitarist, Steve Hill, said, “We have huge plans for 2017, we haven’t messed around on this album; it’s the business and we can’t wait to get it out there. Everything is in the can, we are just pulling together final post-production aspects, and then we are ready to roll. It’s our best work to date and we think people are going to dig it.

TMR Band Management are the hot new team on the UK rock scene, so it’s a natural fit for us hook up with them and we’ve known Peter (Keevil, TMR BM head boy) for years, so when he launched his talent agency, it was destiny that we would work together.”

SKAM are:
Steve Hill – vocals/guitar
Matt Gilmore – bass/vocals
Neal Hill – drums/vocals

Rescue Rooms Live Review

Great live review from The Nottingham Post!

SKAM At Nottingham Rescue Rooms Thursday 12th May 2016

It seemed to be the Night of the Bassists, as all three bands on the line-up boasted some of the most charismatic bass players out there.

Firstly there was Matt Gilmore playing for the openers, SKAM, a 3 piece hard rock outfit hailing from Leicester, who delivered a cracking set and went down really well with the impressive number of early arriver’s who caught their set. Due to the stage set up, with The Treatment’s drum kit already on the riser, it was also as treat to get a great view of the drummer, Neal Hill, who is possibly the coolest maths teacher around! Guitarist and lead vocalist, Steve Hill, has a classic hard rock voice with outstanding range and he can really bend a string when he plays, as proved during “Massacre”. Their slower track, “The Wire”, and the closer, “No Lies” were also stand outs in their short set. Definitely a band to look out for on any line-up.

Thanks guys, see you at the next show!

Airbourne / SKAM

London – The Garage

Beer, Torches and good times with Leicester and Oz rockers

When you scribble notes like, “oooh, big torch” and “oh Fuck yes!” you know its been a good night.

SKAM vocalist/guitarist Steve Hill beelined straight from his teacher day job to support Airbourne tonight. Accordingly, he and his leicester bandmates play with the infectious joie de vivre of three guys overjoyed to be out of the office. Bassist Matt Gilmore looks like a tattooed Animal from the muppets, head thrashing about through bangers like Holy City ….
