5/2/2009: Tour!

Skambankt announced a bunch of new tour dates - check them out on or here on the tour list or the tour map.
And the tour will start tomorrow in Bergen! Check back for a report... might take a few days though. I'll try to be quick. =;-)
And as last good news: "Hardt Regn" entered the VG-list (the Norwegian charts) at position 5. Congrats!

2/2/2009: Competition & competition!

Skambankt posted a new blog post (translation) today, announcing a big "drum intro competition" on NRK P3's show Sexy. Here you can find some more information, and if you don't listen to the show live (for example on the net radio), you can download the podcasts afterwards. The contest will end on Friday, when Skambankt will most likely be in the studio to choose the winner.

And the winners for the Hardt Regn competition have been chosen already. Thanks a lot to everybody who participated! Unfortunately, there can only be three winners, and they are... *drum roll*
  • Camilla winning a t-shirt
  • Einar winning a t-shirt
  • Jez winning a CD

31/1/2009: Kids concert!

Additionally to the "normal" concert at Hulen next week, Skambankt will play a Kids concert in the early evening.
Skambankt started their tour in Denmark, you can check out a first concert review here (in Danish). Again, I won't post news here for every review - please check the link section - also for interviews, by the way. And feel free to send in additional links!
Tomorrow is the last day for the competition, so if you haven't taken part yet, get going!

26/1/2009: Hardt Regn!

Today's the big day, and Skambankt's new album "Hardt Regn" is out in the stores! So go out and buy it, and if you don't live in Norway, is the place to go! Alternatively, you can bug your local record dealer - links to the distributers of the Skambankt records are listed here.
The LP is available at, for example, and they ship to other countries as well (and they also offer the CD, if you want to save postage).

You can find all the lyrics of "Hardt Regn" here, and of course, the translations are online as well! Please let me know if you spot any errors.
I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to Lena for her help with the lyrics and the translation, and also to Andrea for checking the English version! =:-)

Of course I looked forward to the album a lot, so if you care about what I think about it, here is my review.
And speaking of reviews: There will probably be lots of reviews in the next days. I will not put them all in the news here, but I will collect them here. If you find reviews that are not listed there, please send them in (there's a form at the bottom of the page). And if you want to have some translated, let me know!

And now: Enjoy "Hardt Regn"!

25/1/2009: Articles!

I just uploaded two translations: Here you can read the translation of NRK's interview with Skambankt, and here is a (rough) translation of what Jærbladet wrote. Seems the author didn't like them. =:-/
The album will be out tomorrow, so check back tomorrow for the lyrics and translations!
