AFTER CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED "horisonten brenner" released IN FEBRUARY 2018, The Norwegian masters OF ROCK SKAMBANKT will release their first live album "rockefeller 09.03.18" ON AUGUST 24!
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.
Reviews on "Horisonten Brenner" (in NOR)
5/6 Dagsavisen: "Dette er udiskutabelt den mest visjonære platen Skambankt har laget til dags dato, og så vel tematisk som musikalsk spenner den fra den dypeste og hardeste steingrunn til det luftige og storslåtte." - Mode Steinkjer
A-listet på P3: "Noe av det mest storslagne jeg har hørt. [...] Hadde låtskriving vært en olympisk gren, ville denne vunnet." - Tete
5/6 The Wilhelmsens: "...sin aller beste plate så langt med Horisonten Brenner, og jeg sitter her med en følelse av dette bare er forsmaken på hva som kan og bør komme når deres sjuende plate står for tur. Spill denne skiva høyt. Jævlig høyt. Full guffe!"
5/6 Stavanger Aftenblad: "Tungt og solid"
5/6 Hamar Arbeiderblad: "engasjerende, velprodusert og klassisk. Her henger alt på greip."
5/6 Rogalands Avis
7/10 Musikknyheter: "Skambankt er tilbake med eit smell, og etter over 20 år som band, markerar Horisonten Brenner at Skambankt er eit av landets beste rockeband i 2018."
Skambankt is an uncompromising hard rock band from Jæren in Rogaland, Norway, with over 20 years of experience, countless tour dates and 5 records behind them. Ever since their second album, ‘Eliksir’, they've often been seen on the top 10 of Norway's national hit lists, and got their first #1 track on their last album ‘Sirene’ in 2014. Skambankt also earned the Spotify award for 'innovator of the year' in 2013 during the Norwegian Grammy awards Spellemann.
Norwegian tour announced for 2018:
Skambankt started up by coincidence in 1994 when there was a cancellation at a festival they were at. After a couple of hours, the band had written nine songs that were performed the same night as replacement. 10 years went by before the first debut was released, Skambankt's self-titled album from 2004, a record that quickly got noticed and left their fast-growing fan base wanting more. Today, Skambankt is considered Norway's pioneers in the genre, with a discography of 5 albums and 1 EP, they've managed to captivate their audience. It’s been over 3 years since the fans last hear new music from Skambankt, who are finally ready with their new studio album "Horisonten Brenner"!
