  SKYSCRAPER REVEAL TRACKLIST AND VIDEO TEASER FOR NEW ALBUM 'ELEVATOR'
23 July 2014





English/Norwegian melodic rockers Skyscraper will release their long awaited debut album, 'Elevation', on September 8th worldwide via Ghost Dancer Music/Cargo Records.

This dynamic band has been taking critics by storm with their inimitable brand of melodic hard rock. Skyscraper's powerful and heavy demeanour is a fresh take on a breed of music that's been the foundations of rock 'n' roll for many years. A new video teaser can be viewed below.

In some quarters Skyscraper has been compared to Hughes/Thrall, and Bad English, which sees the band in esteemed company as they release this captivating debut album. With so much experience between them it's easy to see why the album, which has been two years in the making, is regarded as essential.

Dave Boyce: "We loved making the album and we can't wait to get Skyscraper out into the live arena and see what the fans think. We know it's going to be one hell of a party once we hit the road."

Lee Small: "It's been a great journey so far and we've had some amazing reaction from industry people which means a lot".

Tor Talle: "We also have to thank producer Martin Kronlund for helping us put the album together and introducing us to Swedish session drummer Imre Daun, who will be joining us live. He brought great energy and style to the album".

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
