26/01/2010: Spellemann!

Skambankt just posted an update of recent news on skambankt.com - you can read the translation here. The important news are that the fourth album is already in the making, and according to Skambankt's facebook site, it is supposed to be out in late summer, early fall - if everything works out as planned. Let's hope so!
Before that, there will be some festivals in summer - check out the tour dates (they are updated whenever some festival announces Skambankt in the line-up). The festival in Stavanger, Rått og Råde, is currently in the news because the planned festival grounds are close to an apartment block where mostly elderly people live, who are not so fond of loud rock music - and it's not clear whether there has been an official permission for the festival. So let's wait and see if and where the festival will actually take place...
The biggest news at the moment, however, is surely the announcement of the nominations for Spellemannsprisen, the Norwegian grammy. Skambankt have been nominated with Hardt Regn in the category Rock. Congratulations, and good luck!
