Just prior to entering the studio to record fresh material, Leicester power-trio SKAM release a new single from their acclaimed album, The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard.
Bring The Rain will be available on all major download and streaming platforms on Fri 22 March 2019. The new single is accompanied by an illustrated lyric video produced by Drew Hamley at Unit 15 Productions.
Bring The Rain won Classic Rock Magazine’s Tracks Of The Week – this week!
Bassist, Matt ‘The Melting Face’ Gilmore, said, “We feel this will be the last single from ‘The Amazing Memoirs…’ and its fitting that it is Bring The Rain as its one of our favourites from the album. It was the song with the longest gestation period; we knew we were on to something special, but we persisted until it all came together in one perfect moment.
The version that made the album was actually the seventh, so it seemed fitting for it to be the seventh song on the record.
The song itself is about Geoffrey Goddard being caught phasing between two time periods of the same geographical location. The Caledonian invasion by the Romans and the Battle of Falkirk. Struggling with his own internal turmoil Goddard confuses the different aspects of the two different time periods. In defeating the Roman patrol he comes round from the haze and rallies north to meet William Wallace to face the English.”
