SKAM to release new single ‘Circles’ on 10th May, out via X-Ray Records.
After hitting the UK rock chart at number 6 with their recent EP Intra, SKAM keeps pace with the first single from their impending second EP Venous.’ Circles’ will be released on the 10th of May via X-Ray Records.
‘Circles’ is a hard-hitting tour de force that combines everything SKAM does best. Heavy riffs sprinkled with ear worm melodies, ‘Circles’ will have you raising your horns to the sky!
Lyrically the song was written in lockdown and tells the story many will have been feeling. Despite living a circular life repeating the same day for weeks on end, it’s all about keeping your head held high through tough times and looking to the future with hope.
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, SKAM have independently released 3 albums. It’s Come to This (2011) and Peacemaker (2014) were released and established themselves as a live force to be reckoned with. The band have hit the road with The Answer, Airbourne, Skindred, The Quireboys, and GUN, to name a few formidable live acts.
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 EP’s 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, but 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. Their recent EP Intra hit the UK Rock Chart at # 6!
