18/7/2009: Summer festivals

Check out this year's first report of a Skambankt festival gig here, from Slottsfjellfestivalen. And there's also some photos (which I hope are okay, hard to see on the netbook... *g*).

6/7/2009: Stay up-to-date!

Do you want to keep up with all the news about Skambankt? Then you need to track quite a lot of different pages - this one here of course,, MySpace, Facebook... quite a hassle! This site here has an RSS feed which makes it easier to catch all updates, but: Not all updates are posted there. I don't send out updates for small things like new festival dates or newspaper links. But here's the solution: Follow on Twitter! And you'll never ever miss any news about Skambankt anymore... =;-)

30/6/2009: Top of the pops!

The Topp20 show in Stavanger will be broadcast live tomorrow (Wednesday), both on NRK P3 (radio, the broadcast will start at 6:30 pm) and on VGTV (probably here).

28/6/2009: Summer is here!

And with the summer, it's time for lots of festivals! Skambankt are ready - read the translation of their latest news bit.
You can check out the list of tour dates here or on the tour map - I try to keep those up to date, even though it is a bit difficult because Skambankt tend to not announce their concerts sometimes. =;-) For example, they'll play for free at the Topp20 show in Stavanger this Wednesday, so pack your earplugs and come by!

11/6/2009: Ready for AC/DC!

Skambankt will warm up for AC/DC on Monday, and they are ready, as you can tell when watching this clip!
As a summary: Skambankt are looking forward to the gig with a mixture of joy, anxiety and deep respect. Not so much because of the 40.000 people in the audience (it doesn't really make a difference if it's 10.000 or 20.000 - a lot is a lot, and of course it is great to able to present yourself for the biggest audience you can get in Norway), but more because they might actually meet AC/DC behind the scenes, which would probably leave them speechless. Even though some photos would be great, of course... Anyway, the big difference between Skambankt and AC/DC is that Skambankt sing in Norwegian, which is obviously the only reason why Skambankt aren't as big as AC/DC. =;-)
