After hitting the UK rock chart at number 6 with their recent EP Intra, powerhouse UK hard rock trio SKAM keep the pedal down with second single ‘Fade Out‘ from their impending second EP ‘Venous‘.
‘Fade Out’ is the follow up to recent single ‘Circles‘, and will be released on the 19th of July through X-Ray Records on all digital platforms.
“‘Fade Out’ is a sh*t kicking power groove of defiance against politicians and those in power. The lies and deceit of those at the top is always felt by the working class and we wanted to call them out. This year in particular we have all felt the effects of poor leadership. Although the song isn’t about any leaders in particular, it is a feeling mirrored in the thoughts of many. Play it loud and proud and raise a middle finger to oppression!” – SKAM
Formed in 2011, SKAM are a hard rock power trio band from the middle of England. They have a reputation for delivering no nonsense, gutsy, classic sounding British rock music.Over the last 9 years, the band have worked tirelessly to build a solid following in the UK, and now they are widely considered to be at the forefront of the ‘New Wave of Classic Rock’ movement that is currently sweeping the nation.
To date, the band have independently released 3 albums. ‘It’s Come to This’ (2011) and ‘Peacemaker’ (2014) were released to critical acclaim and the band established themselves as a live force to be reckoned with. The band have hit road with The Answer, Airbourne, Skindred, The Quireboys, and GUN to name a few and are considered a formidable live act.
A drive to innovate inspired SKAM to release ‘The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard’ (2017), a concept record based on the diary entries of a time travelling RAF pilot.
The songs were described as ‘gritty anthemic rockers’ by Classic Rock Magazine and the album received a number of 5-star reviews from the UK Music press. SKAM don’t write songs to a formula, they write songs as rock fans, trying to capture what they would want to hear.
Lead single ‘Take it Or Leave it’ was voted as ‘track of the week’ by Classic Rock Magazine and has since been included on Earache Records ‘New Wave of Rock N Roll’ compilation vinyl.
