Wow, so here we are in July!
This month our new album PEACEMAKER will be released.
After the long delay we cannot wait for you guys to hear it.
This week to mark the occasion, the mighty Kerrang! magazine have featured us in the ‘Introducing’ section of the mag.
Grab yourself copy of K!1525 to check it out and see us give our best war faces!
And even better go to the Kerrang! website for an exclusive free download of the powerful title track PEACEMAKER.
That’s right people, the second single from the forth coming album, PEACEMAKER, is now available.
HOLY CITY is a track about us all. We are all the same. But for some reason we feel the need to add a divide by using religion, race or creed. The B side is an exclusive acoustic version of GOING AWAY, a firm favourite amoung the SKAM massive.
We hope you like it! Keep rocking and we will see you on the road very soon

Ace photographer Shona Cutt. captured these ace new live shots of SKAM at the Tunnels in Bristol back in January hot on the heels of shooting the new promotional images of the boys to accompany their eagerly awaited second album Peacemaker.
Here are some of our favorite shots from our recent shoot with the awesome Shona Cutt.
We are proud and excited to announce the amazing news that SKAM have just signed a worldwide deal with Off Yer Rocka Records.
We are excited to be associated with such a great label and are looking forward to having the support of a great team of genuine music lovers.
Powerhouse Leicester 3-piece Skam kick off 2014 in fine style with the worldwide release of new single ‘Rivers’ on February 24th. The track is taken from the forthcoming 2nd album ‘Peacemaker’ – set for a July 28th worldwide release, via their new label deal with Off Yer Rocka Recordings. A killer live band, they will be hitting the road again on a run of UK dates in February.
Skam continue to wear their influences on their sleeves – from Sabbath and QOTS through Foo Fighters, AC/DC, the fuzziest of the grunge era bands and even some cosmic Prog breakdowns. All tied together with their own, wickedly infectious grooves.
The band ended 2013 on a real high finishing at #30 in Classic Rock Magazines fan voted Tracks Of The Year list; http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/features/songs-of-the-year-top-50/ – The track – ‘Massacre’ – taken from their debut album ‘Its Come To This’ saw them feature in among the likes of Black Sabbath and Motorhead. No mean feat for a self-funded, self-motivated, self-everything , DIY to the core band who have been given great support already from the fine people at Planet Rock Radio, Classic Rock Magazine, Kerrang Magazine, XFM Rock Show, Kerrang Radio and Scuzz TV among others.
The new record has been produced by Matt Ellis who was of course at the helm on the debut long player. That record, with its two killer singles; No Lies and Massacre captured the rawness, the depth and the sheer no nonsense good times that Skam also bring to their live shows. It was something the band were keen to keep in the mix. “The New SKAM album is a culmination of 2 years on the road and our desire to just put out the music we love. We have a huge array of different influences and we don’t hide behind them. We are ROCK fans. It’s that simple. Between us we have a deep love for nearly all guitar driven rock!”
We are pleased to have been asked to play at the great HAMMERFEST festival. This marks the first in a long list of festival spots we are planning for the coming months so stay tuned. The festival runs from the 13th to the 16th of March and its gonna be a face melting weekend! For more info and tickets go to the Hammerfest website by clicking on this link : www.hammerfest.co.uk
