2017-11-13 : Skandal on tour in the UK

From the press release:
"Ruthlessly,​ ​until-recently-Leeds-based​ ​band​ ​Skandal​ ​push​ ​the​ ​boundaries​ ​of​ ​heavy​ ​riff​ ​oriented music​ ​with​ ​their​ ​latest​ ​release​ ​"Year​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Cicada",​ ​mixed​ ​and​ ​mastered​ ​by​ ​George​ ​Bokos​ ​of Rotting​ ​Christ​ ​fame.​ ​The​ ​24​ ​minute​ ​4-track​ ​EP​ ​sees​ ​them​ ​capture​ ​a​ ​darker​ ​and​ ​heavier approach​ ​while​ ​maintaining​ ​all​ ​the​ ​elements​ ​of​ ​their​ ​explosive​ ​and​ ​catchy​ ​Heavy​ ​Rock/Rock​ ​n'Roll​ ​former​ ​identity,​ ​firmly​ ​branding​ ​their​ ​sound​ ​under​ ​the​ ​moniker​ ​of​ ​Doom​ ​n'​ ​Roll.

Receiving​ ​high​ ​acclaim​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​EP​ ​"First​ ​Step​ ​to​ ​Nowhere"​ ​by​ ​the​ ​press,​ ​the​ ​band​ ​managed to​ ​fight​ ​through​ ​internal​ ​hardships​ ​and​ ​book​ ​its​ ​first​ ​tour​ ​in​ ​support​ ​of​ ​its​ ​most​ ​recent​ ​release, building​ ​a​ ​reputation​ ​for​ ​soulful​ ​live​ ​performances,​ ​and​ ​gaining​ ​an​ ​army​ ​of​ ​loyal​ ​fans.

Skandal​ ​are​ ​currently​ ​seeking​ ​label​ ​interest,​ ​touring​ ​and​ ​one-off​ ​gigging​ ​opportunities​ ​in​ ​2017​ ​to further​ ​support​ ​"Year​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Cicada".​ ​Offering​ ​a​ ​ritualistic​ ​and​ ​unique​ ​live​ ​show,​ ​Skandal​ ​are dedicated​ ​to​ ​establishing​ ​themselves​ ​as​ ​an​ ​inspirational​ ​representative​ ​of​ ​the​ ​UK's​ ​glorious heavy​ ​scene​ ​through​ ​extensive​ ​touring​ ​and​ ​album​ ​distribution."
