English and 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 unique brand of hard rock.
SKYSCRAPER‘s powerful and melodious performance is a fresh take on a breed of music that’s been the foundations of rock ‘n’ roll for years. With much experience between them, it’s easy to see why the album- which has been two years in the making- is of such a high standard, from the flawless vocals to the instrumental perfection.
Dave Boyce (Bass) couldn’t be more excited about the bands future – ‘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“.
