15/10/2009: CARE!

Skambankt will play at Youngstorget in Oslo this Saturday, 2009/10/17! The free concert will be part of P3 aksjonen, which is a campaing to raise money for the humanitarian organization CARE. So if you go by, donate some penger, if you can't make it, wish for a song and donate money this way! You can also buy some really special stuff. And in any case you should check out Skambankt's concert on Saturday, 9 p.m. Most probably, this will also be broadcast on NRK P3 (and their web radio), so don't miss out on this!

4/10/2009: Last chance!

Back from Bergen! Here's my report from the concert at Garage - it was sold out, and there will be an additional concert at Garage October 29.
If you haven't managed to catch a Skambankt concert lately, make sure to see them during the next weeks - there's still some concerts up to the end of October (check out all known dates here), and after that, Skambankt will be busy working on their new album. And you really shouldn't miss out on the concerts! =:-D

20/9/2009: New songs!

OK, not REALLY new songs, but new songs on the setlist! For the fall tour, Skambankt kept their promise and rehearsed some new songs. If you want to, take a peek at the setlist from the Rockefeller concert! And then check out the upcoming concerts and get your ticket. =;-)
But the setlist wasn't the only highlight at the concert in Oslo: During KKK, Prepple from Dum Dum Boys came on stage to sing his part!

17/9/2009: Sony!

It's been all over the internet the last days: Skambankt were signed by Sony! Their contract with Tuba Records was fulfilled, and now Skambankt are looking forward to work with a bigger company. According to a newspaper interview, there is no reason to worry though that Skambankt will go indie and country and more commercial now: "It's still us four who make the music. We are in the middle of the process, and busy with a new record and working on new songs. There will be a new studio and a new producer, but it hasn't been decided yet who it's gonna be." But - the album will be out in the fall of 2010 already!

21/8/2009: Up north!

Skambankt played two concerts in Tromsø last week - thanks to Lena, you can already read the reports and check out the photos. Enjoy!
Currently, the first dates for concerts in the fall are coming in. Oslo (Sep. 18) and Stavanger (Oct. 10) are confirmed on the websites of the venues already, an unconfirmed date is Haugesund (Oct. 9). If you hear of other concert dates, let me know!
