18/11/2018: Stavanger Rock City!

Yay - back home from a weekend in Stavanger, and it was so worth it! Read my reports about the concerts at Checkpoint Charlie and Folken, and check out @photosbygrethe's awesome photos from the Folken show!

Also, I hope you're following along with the tour dates for next year. There are lots of shows already announced - with the highlight (so far) surely being the support gig for Bon Jovi in Stavanger! See you there ... =:-)

23/09/2018: Concert news!

Skambankt are on tour in Denmark at the moment, and here are my reports from Aarhus and Odense!

Also, Skambankt have just announced two new concerts: an additional concert in Stavanger on November 16, this time at Checkpoint Charlie (the concert at Folken the next day is sold out by now), and their (almost) annual Christmas concert in Bryne! Dates and links are available in the LIVE section.

29/08/2018: Velkommen til konsert!

It's out! "Skambankt - Rockefeller 09.03.2018" was released last week, and while there doesn't seem to be much press around it, social media has a lot of praise. And rightfully so!

So sit back and enjoy a (short) concert in your living room - to prepare for the tour in fall, of course! Skambankt have now confirmed most of the tour dates, and in addition, they have already been announced for next year's Raumarock festival. Yay!

And for something completely different, Skambankt will participate at Kapittel in Stavanger and talk to Leif Tore Lindø about solidarity and concord in a band. This will happen on September 19, see more information here.

15/08/2018: Live live live!

Only 10 days until Skambankt's first ever live album is released - have you preordered already? If not, it's about time!

And it looks like we'll get another tour in October, so we can get the live experience not only on the stereo, but also in person! The first dates are getting out now, but there will surely be a few more - check out the ones that are already announced here. And get your tickets! The show in Porsgrunn is actually sold out already!

29/06/2018: Raise your fingers ...

... and praise the first-ever Skambankt live album! Yes, there will finally be a live album, with the title "Skambankt - Rockefeller 09.03.2018". As you might be able to guess, it was recorded during the concert at Rockefeller in Oslo in March. =:-)

Cover Skambankt - Rockefeller 09.03.2018

The album won't contain the full concert (you can check the full setlist in the concert report), but the following nine songs:
  1. I dette huset
  2. Voodoo
  3. Slukk meg (for eg brenner)
  4. Horisonten brenner
  5. O dessverre
  6. Vår bør
  7. Levende legende
  8. Balladen om deg
  9. Stormkast #1
The release date is August 24, but you can already preorder CD and LP from Indie Recordings (keep in mind though that they ship from Spain and you might have to pay toll - so you might want to wait for the album to be available from Platekompaniet), and of course the album will be available digitally as well. The first single "O dessverre" is already out - listen to it here!
