NEW SINGLE: Take It Or Leave It

 

UK hard rock trio SKAM have announced the release of a new single and video – Take It Or Leave It – on Friday 20th Oct.

The song is the third to be taken from a brand new album, The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard set for release on 17 November. TAMOGG is their third album and will be a follow on to their acclaimed 2011 debut, It’s Come To This, their breakthrough second album 2014’s Peacemaker and a raucous SKAM:LIVE album earlier this year.

The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard features 11 original songs written and performed by SKAM. Recorded at AXIS Studios in Doncaster, UK in late 2016 it was produced, mixed and mastered by Matt Ellis. The exceptional album artwork was especially commissioned and produced by Jack Morrey.

The album features a story-arc of Squadron Leader Geoffrey Goddard, a test pilot from 1935, who is a victim of strange forces that jolt him through time. The songs and accompanying album artwork, videos and booklets tell his tale as he battles to return home and at times, for his very sanity.

Singer/Guitarist, Steve Hill, said, “Take It Or Leave It is a killer track with a great groove that will get people moving. I think people are going to dig it. It’s another chapter in Goddard’s fantastic journey – this time landing him in ancient Egypt. The artwork is mega cool and so is the song.”

SKAM will now head out across the UK to promote the new album that includes a home town album launch show @ The Musician, Leicester on Friday 17th November.

New Single – Between The Eyes

PRESS RELEASE:

UK hard rock power trio, SKAM, are thrilled to announce the release of a new single, Between The Eyes on Friday 25th August 2017.

The song is taken from their 3rd album, The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard (#TAMOGG), scheduled for release on Friday 17th November 2017 and available now on pre-order at http://skamuk.com in multiple formats – MP3, CD and Vinyl.

The album features 11 original songs written and performed by SKAM. Recorded at AXIS Studios in Doncaster, UK in late 2016 it was produced, mixed and mastered by Matt Ellis. The exceptional album artwork was especially commissioned and produced by Jack Morrey.

The album features a story-arc of Squadron Leader Geoffrey Goddard, a test pilot from 1935, who is a victim of strange forces that jolt him through time. The songs and accompanying album artwork, videos and booklets tell his tale as he battles to return home and at times, for his very sanity.

Singer/Guitarist, Steve Hill, said, “We have been living and breathing this for a couple of years now; writing, crafting, honing what has become our third album. We have gone old school with the whole thing, from recording it ‘as a band in a room’, through to gatefold vinyl and really going to town on the artwork. So, to say we can’t wait for folk to hear it and experience it, is possibly THE understatement of 2017.”

Classic Rock say nice things about a certain Support band… ;)

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 ….

Kerrang and Powerplay and many more Give SKAM KKKK

“The Leicester trio piece together their history-referencing rock using a tried-and-tested recipe of riffs, riffs and more riffs. And you know 
what? It works a bloody treat. – In a world with so many smoke and mirrors scams, Skam are undeniably the real deal”
KKKK Kerrang! Magazine Peacemaker
“Specialising in creating a penetrating atmosphere while touching on an almost psychedelic swagger  – Loud, proud, as tight as the 
proverbial…and British too!!” [9/10 album review]  “a raucous take on Zeppelin beating up Clutch in a lo-fi grunge street fight.”  
Powerplay Magazine
“A fine album from a young band who are clearly enjoying themselves and play with a wonderfully infectious youthful exuberance”
Rock Society Magazine 
“histrionic leads and born showmanship – especially with the huge rock riff that  heralds new tune Peacemaker” 
Metal Hammer Magazine
“Part Foo Fighters, part Queens Of The Stone Age, three-piece Skam look like they 

have been doing this for years. With an armoury of songs such as current single Rivers and a new record deal in their pockets, they are set to go far”  – “the Prince is close on being a modern day pop-rock masterpiece”
Classic Rock Magazine 
“The band deliver music that gets inside your soul and makes it jump about waving devil signs and sporting a silly grin” 
Fireworks Magazine 
 
“Peacemaker’ is a definite step up the rock ‘n’ roll ladder. As they gain the audience and start playing the venues to better suit their increasingly 
outward-looking style, SKAM can surely only build from here – it’s a long way to the top, but these boys are making real good headway.”
8/10 Midlands Rocks 
“the album is full of wickedly infectious grooves, with some serious fret shredding solo’s and thundering bass lines that underpin the
whole album. As AC/DC once said, this will shake your foundations”
4/5 PlanetMosh
