SKAMBANKT ANNOUNCES LIVE ALBUM "ROCKEFELLER 09.03.18"
On February 9 this year, Skambankt released their 6th studio album, the critically acclaimed "Horisonten Brenner". Following the release, the band went on an extensive Norwegian tour that covered major towns from Alta in the North to Kristiansand in the South of Norway. One of the highlights along the way was, of course, to play for a sold-out Rockefeller in Oslo. The concert was recorded and has now been mixed and mastered in the band's own studio, Bore Gardsrockeri.
On August 24 the result will be released on CD and white vinyl, in the form of the album "Skambankt - Rockefeller 09.03.18". The album contains nine songs, nine highlights from the greatest Skambankt night in Oslo so far!
This album is a souvenir for all who experienced Skambankt live on this tour. And, it is a reminder to all those who were not attending a concert on this tour to be ready next time Skambankt arrives.
The band's vocalist, Terje Witerstø Røthing, has commented: "As a teenage band from Jæren, to perform at one of the biggest venues in the capital was a distant thought. To play at Rockefeller was the ultimate dream back in 1994, which we never have thought it will happen. The dream came true in 2018. And in 2018, we are equally excited about playing at Rockefeller. We are proud of the fact that we played there several times, and we are proud of this album. It was a fantastic night and it's now going to live forever, in a form of this recording.
The record's first taste is already available today as the band releases "O Dessverre", taken off the upcoming album.
