Welcome back, we hope all our SKAM friends around the globe have had a great time over the festive period. We have!
Copious amounts of Turkey, Cheese, sprouts and Beer have been consumed but now its time to get lean and fighting fit ready for the new year!
So what have we got planned for you this year ? Im glad you asked!
We are hard at work piecing together the year plan and we intend to head out and hit as many cities as possible in the next 12 months.
Think we may be missing you out? – message us on Facebook and tell us so! CLICK HERE keep your eyes on the site for all gig announcements!
We hope to be named on some high profile shows too so watch this space
We have a new Single coming out early in the year and we are set to film a Video in the next few weeks. Its going to be great!
We have also been working hard at SKAM HQ writing new songs. Most of you will have now heard Rivers and Holy city and we have been really pleased by people’s reactions. We currently have around 7 songs done and more works inn progress than you can shake a stick at.
I dont want to get ahead of myself but if all goes well then perhaps we may need to book some studio time ?!?!?
We hope you are all in fine voice! Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements!
See you down the front
Just a quick message to congratulate our very own Bass viking for being included in last issue of Bass player magazine.
Matt is a long time fan of the publication and this will make him very happy!
Nice to see him getting the recognition he deserves!
SKAM are so very proud to announce that the World famous Marshall Amplification have agreed to endorse Steve for our fast approaching UK tour with BONAFIDE this November.
Steve is a passionate Marshall devotee who has used his Marshall JVM for every live show since 2010.
For Steve its a pretty big deal and he is overjoyed, Marshall are associated with all his heroes, Angus, Slash, and many many more. They are synonymous with Rock and Roll and now our very own Rock Ninja!
“I am so proud to be associated with such an iconic company, I could never achieve my sound with out the unequalled ‘Kerrrang’ of a marshall head! Its so great that in an industry thats so harsh they are still prepared to help us out on our journey up the ladder!”
Thank you Marshall, you really do rock!

Thanks for all the kind words regarding our recent Cover of AC/DC’s Hell aint a bad place to be.
We were really chuffed when classic rock asked us to contribute to the cover mount CD for the second month in a row. (Summer 2012) And Track number 1 at that!
We had lots of different ideas about which song from 1977 we should cover in the end how could we not have a shot at the awesome DC!
After a hectic 2 days at Leicesters own, Dojo Media recording studio with our long term friend Ollie Petch, we managed to get the song down. We hoped to try and capture a bit of the 70′s style so everything bar a couple of vocal over dubs were recorded live just like how Angus and the boys did it all those years ago!
The blurb in the mag read:
“Rock and roll changed radically i n 1977. Well most rock and roll did. AC/DC stayed exactly the same, bless’em. A roof-burner from Let There Be Rock, Hell… Covered all the important bases: killer riffs, demons, the devil and loose women. This song launched a thousand bands, including fiery brit scruffs SKAM, who let loose here with a furiously punky take on the tune. Thier debut album It’s Come To This is out now.”
Hope you enjoy it.
We are so proud to have ‘No Lies’ Picked to be on the Cover mount CD of the July Edition of Classic Rock Magazine.
The Blurb in the Mag Read:
“One assumes that riding shotgun on The Union and The Answer’s double-header drinkathon in March put hairs on the chest of Leicester’s hotly tipped SKAM, but on the evidence of live favourite No Lies this stinging trio will soon have the material to blow their own roofs off”
Check us out at a local show where we will indeed Blow some roof off!
Another year another Glastonbudget.
And this year promises to be a corker.
SKAM are playing @ 7pm on the Big top stage Saturday!
Be there or be a suspect biscuit!
Just a quick one to let you kno that we have confirmed that we are playing the 2012 Bulldog Bash.
We are constantly adding more dates so check out our gig guide for more shows.
