Skam: Reputation for delivering no nonsense, gutsy, classic sounding British rock music…..

Skam – Fade Out

Skam is a rock power trio from Leicester, UK.

Formed in 2011, Skam are a hard rock power trio band from the middle of England. They have a reputation for delivering no nonsense, gutsy, classic sounding British rock music. Over the last 9 years, the band have worked tirelessly to build a solid following in the UK, and now they are widely considered to be at the forefront of the New Wave Of Classic Rock movement that is currently sweeping the nation. They have a reputation for delivering no nonsense, gutsy, classic sounding British rock music.

After hitting the UK rock chart at number 6 with their recent EP Intra, powerhouse UK hard rock trio Skam keep the pedal down with second single Fade Out from their impending second EP Venous.

Fade Out is the follow up to recent single Circles, and is out now through X-Ray Records on all digital platforms.

«Fade Out is a sh*t kicking power groove of defiance against politicians and those in power. The lies and deceit of those at the top is always felt by the working class and we wanted to call them out. This year in particular we have all felt the effects of poor leadership. Although the song isn’t about any leaders in particular, it is a feeling mirrored in the thoughts of many. Play it loud and proud and raise a middle finger to oppression!» –Skam.

To date, Skam have independently released 3 albums, It’s Come To This (2011), Peacemaker (2014) and The Amazing Memoirs Of Geoffrey Goddard (2017). With these releases, they established themselves as a live force to be reckoned with. The band have hit the road with The Answer, Airbourne, Skindred, The Quireboys, and GUN, to name just a few formidable live acts.

A drive to innovate inspired Skam to release The Amazing Memoirs Of Geoffrey Goddard (2017) – a concept record based on the diary entries of a time travelling RAF pilot. The EP’s songs were described as gritty anthemic rockers by Classic Rock Magazine, with the album receiving a number of 5-star reviews from the UK Music press.

Skam don’t write songs to a formula, but as rock fans trying to capture what they would want to hear. Their single Take It Or Leave It was voted as ‘track of the week’ by Classic Rock Magazine and has since been included on Earache Records’ New Wave of Rock N Roll compilation vinyl. Their recent EP Intra hit the UK Rock Chart at # 6!

About Ulf Backstrøm (7174 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
