How can I get the Skambankt records in Europe?

The easiest way: Order them online, either from www.cdon.com or from Lo-Fi Merchandise. Cdon is a Swedish company, Lo-Fi is German. Downloads are available, for example, on www.amazon.com, and probably also on iTunes.
If you want to have your local record store order the CDs for you, that's also possible. The first three albums are released on Dog Job, a label of Tuba Records. In Denmark, the record company was Kick Music for the first three albums and Sony Music starting with Søvnløs.
The first three records are distributed by Soulfood in Germany, Bertus in the Benelux, Irascible in Switzerland, Target in Denmark, and Sound Pollution in Sweden. With that information, your local record dealer should be able to order the CDs... hopefully. =;-)

Where can I buy merchandise?

The best way is to buy it after the concerts - but this might be a little harder in Europe, I admit that. =;-)
The German company Lo-Fi Merchandise sells Skambankt merchandise. They have an online shop that ships to basically everywhere, and in Cologne, there is also a "real" shop. You can find the address on their website.

What are Skambankt's ambitions for Europe?

Skambankt's only goal is to have fun making music. So there are no serious ambitions to conquer Europe, neither with the records nor touring, but if there's an opportunity like the gig in Berlin, they certainly won't say no. The big question is: "How far can fun bring you"?

What are the plans for the nearer future?

Skambankt have just returned from a pretty long break. Now they'll be touring a lot, play the summer festivals, and then ...? Probably start working on new songs, I'd guess.

When will the next Skambankt album come out?

Well, they just released a new album at the beginning of 2014, so give them some time. =;-)

I like Kaizers Orchestra. Will I also like Skambankt?

Maybe. Maybe not. Skambankt are completely different from Kaizers.
Listen to the music and decide for yourself.

When will Skambankt finally come back to $TOWN?

Check the tour dates. Check www.skambankt.com. If you don't find any dates for $TOWN there, there's probably no concert planned.

Are there any concerts around here soon?

That depends on where "around here" is. =;-) The easiest way to find out is to check the tour map and zoom to where you want to go see them. Click on the stars to see where and when the concert will take place!

Where can I see the Skambankt videos?

Here or on YouTube. If you live in Germany, you might have to use a service like unblockyoutube.co.uk though.

Where can I listen to some Skambankt songs?

Skambankt songs are available on Spotify and Wimp. If you don't have access to those, YouTube is probably your best option.

What does "Skambankt" mean?

Something like "beaten to pieces".
For the linguists: skam - shame, disgrace; bankt - past participle of banke - beat up, thrash =;-)
