2007/2/5: Stirred & un-stirred

According to NRK, Skambankt's single Dynasti will be part of this year's Rørt & Urørt sampler that will be out in February.
The four festivals that have leaked through already have been confirmed, thus Skambankt will be playing at Helgåfestivalen, Quart, Kvinesdal Rock and Øyafestivalen. Check the map if you're not so familiar with Norwegian summer festivals - and then start planning your vacation. =:-)
If you want Skambankt and only Skambankt, come to the tour instead - there will be support bands in Denmark and at Folken, but it seems that Skambankt will be not only the main but also the only act at the other concerts in Norway. So don't be late. =;-)
Last but not least, keep on voting for a nice setlist, and promote Skambankt, of course!

2007/2/4: Vote!

Actually, the plan for today was to translate the lyrics. But somehow I got carried away - the result is, that you can now vote for your favorite setlist! Three votes a day (per IP, so if you are in a school or something, be quick before someone else voted =;-)), I'm curious how the results will be. In case of problems, contact me.
And of course, check out the official news and take part in the competition!

2007/2/3: News news news!

Additionally, some new links and a picture of the prizes you can win in the competition!

2007/1/31: Report and pictures!

There you go: the report and the photos from the release party are online now. Enjoy!
Apart from this, I'm constantly updating the link section with links to album reviews, interviews, and concert reviews and pictures.
There's some new festival dates, so check out the tour list and map!

2007/1/31: In the stores!

The big day has come and gone - Eliksir is in the stores and the release party is over. Now it's time to make up your own opinion about the album instead of just reading about how great or boring it is. =;-)
Skambankt have updated their website, so check it out! If you don't know Norwegian, don't worry, I will put up translations of the news here - just give me a day or two to get them done. But you should definitely check out the video to Dynasti, Skambankt put it up on their new website!
Don't forget to watch Lydverket on NRK tonight. The rerun will be on Monday, Feb. 5, 10 past midnight!
Two more concert dates have been confirmed: The show in Harstad will take place after all, and Skambankt will go even further north and play in Tromsø as well. Also, more and more festival dates are being confirmed. If you have some hints, please drop me a line. For all festival and concert dates that are known yet, check the LIVE section.
And finally, the competition is going on, of course. Skambankt have agreed to be on the jury - so go out and do some promotion!
