30/11/2010: Up north!

While Skambankt will make their way up to Northern Norway this weekend (watch out for some concert reports here on the site!), here is a little news update:
You can check out a new music video for Jesus av vår tid on YouTube! Well, or at least you can check it out if you don't have a German IP address - in that case you'll only get a "This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment. It is not available in your country." - duuh...
A making of for this video was shown on TV Vest a few days ago. You can watch it here.
And finally, some new tour dates were added! Don't miss out on these concerts, as Skambankt will probably take a break after this tour.

13/10/2010: Vinyl!

According to Tuba Records, there will be a special treat for all vinyl enthusiasts soon: On November 7, Tuba will release a box containing all records that Skambankt released on Tuba Record's label Dogjob in vinyl versions. The box "Tuba-Śrene 2004 - 2009" ("Tuba years 2004-2009") will contain the albums "Skambankt", "Eliksir", and "Hardt Regn" and the EP "Skamania". Three of these releases have only been out as CD before. The Skamania EP will have three bonus tracks: "Reservatet", "MTV", and "De røyge hasj, men det gjer me vel faen i" which have been recorded in 2004 but were never released. The box will be limited to 500 copies, and it will contain a download code and a numbered card signed by the band.

28/09/2010: Wrapping up!

Søvnløs has been out for three weeks now - time to make up your mind about how you like it! Here's my own review, check it out if you want to.
If you don't want to decide without knowing what the songs are about... don't worry, I finally finished the translations of the lyrics! Thanks a lot to Lena and Mox for great help there! =:-) Still, if you notice anything that is wrong or sounds weird, just let me know.
Then, to sum up some news that I already posted on Twitter, but it never hurts to mention them here as well: The Skambankt concerts in Denmark last weekend had to be cancelled because Tollak hurt his hand. It is not clear yet whether the concerts will take place lateron this year; Voxhall announced that it wasn't possible to find a new date, so this concert won't happen. Stay tuned for info about the Copenhagen and Horsens concerts. All concerts in Norway will take place as planned - Petter Svee will fill in for Tollak if necessary.
In addition to the Lydverket show where Skambankt performed Mantra, you can now watch more songs of their mini concert that night here. Enjoy!
And finally, some short remarks to some of you who got here via Google: No, there are no Kvelertak lyrics on this site, sorry. "Mjød" is not a Skambankt song, and in turn, "Mantra" is not a Kvelertak song. =;-)

19/09/2010: Lyrics!

Sorry it took so long this time, but now the Søvnløs lyrics are finally up. Translations will follow soon, probably next weekend.
If that is not enough for you to read, don't worry, there's more: Check out Marlene's report from the Lydverket recording! Thanks a lot for sharing that, Marlene! The result is available to watch online here - but well, we all know that Skambankt are even better in real life than on a TV screen. =;-)
In addition, I've added quite a few review links over the last weeks, and I guess there's more to come. Also, Skambankt confirmed a few more tour dates, so don't miss your chance to see them this year!
And last but not least: Congratulations to a well-deserved 2nd place in the Norwegian charts!

07/09/2010: Out!

So Søvnløs is finally out in the stores now! Hope you got your copy already!
Of course there's lots of reviews coming in now - I won't post all of them here or on Twitter, but you can find them under Links/Reviews. The current average is 4.3/6, which is definitely not bad!
Also, there are a few more concert dates and rumors about concert dates - check them out in the tour list.
The #skmbnkt competition is over and the winners have been notified. Congrats! And thanks to everyone who took part, this was really fun to read.
