  EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE: SKAM UNLEASH NEW SINGLE 'BETWEEN THE EYES'
25th August 2017



skam

UK hard rock power trio, Skam, have their new single, 'Between The Eyes', released today, Friday 25th August 2017.

The song is taken from their third album, 'The Amazing Memoirs Of Geoffrey Goddard', and is premiering today right here on MetalTalk.



'The Amazing Memoirs Of Geoffrey Goddard' tells the story of Squadron Leader Geoffrey Goddard, an RAF test pilot from 1935, who is a victim of strange forces that jolt him through time. The songs and accompanying album artwork, videos and booklets tell his tale as he battles to return home and at times, for his very sanity.

Skam vocalist/guitarist Steve Hill told us:

"We have been living and breathing this for a couple of years now; writing, crafting, honing what has become our third album.

"We have gone old school with the whole thing, from recording it as a band in a room, through to gatefold vinyl and really going to town on the artwork.

"So, to say we can't wait for folk to hear it and experience it, is possibly THE understatement of 2017."

Pre-orders can be placed at http://skamuk.com and include a collection of album artwork merchandise, signed calendars, posters, drum skins, phone covers, VIP packages, album launch show tickets, and intimate shows and listening parties in your own home.

The album will be released on Friday 17th November 2017 and is available now on pre-order at skamuk.com in multiple formats – MP3, CD and Vinyl.

'Between The Eyes' is the second single taken from the album, 'Fading Before The Sun' being the first, and the music video was produced by Skam and edited by Video Ink. It was filmed at Newark Air Museum which is located on a former Royal Air Force station at Winthorpe, near Newark-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire, England.

The album features eleven original songs and was recorded at Axis Studios in Doncaster, UK in late 2016. It was produced, mixed and mastered by Matt Ellis and the exceptional album artwork was especially commissioned and produced by Jack Morrey.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
