We will come to your place and play a set of your choice in front of your friends and family! All you have to do to enter is send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us where you live and why playing at your place would be cool.
Do you have a quirky place? Maybe a huge garage just waiting to be rocked? Will you provide sausage rolls? Do you have a spare Rolls Royce and swimming pool? The more interesting your message the better chance you have of us coming. The gigs will take place between Friday 27th June to Sunday 29th June, with exact times to be arranged.
Each winner will receive a one off ‘Living Room Tour’ t-shirt and a signed print with a thank-you message from the band. Please be aware that this would be a full live PA powered gig, it would be a good idea to invite the neighbors! We’re looking forward to your message, so let’s get rocking!
PS – Rumours of Metallica opening for SKAM on the Living Room Tour are totally unfounded
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

Hi SKAM fans!
Good news! We have finished writing songs for our next new album. We have about fifteen tracks, though only ten will make the final cut. Before we start recording though we need to get outdoors and flex our rock muscles again, starting with a huge hometown show.
We can’t wait to get out and play some shows and we promise this won’t be the last one this year. To mark the occasion you’ll be able to get your hands on a limited run of CD singles on the night. The single will feature a new song from the new record and will also include a number of SKAM rarities and B sides.
See you down the front!
