We are very proud to announce that the new studio album from PANIC ROOM is now completed, and ready to pre-order!
The new album, released on 25th June 2012, is called... 'S K I N'.

A true collectors' item.

All pre-orders will be despatched first in line, when the albums are ready to send.
T H E S O U N D O F ' S K I N '
'S K I N' is a dark and shimmering jewel, featuring 11 new and original tracks which all bear the hallmark sound of Panic Room - both powerful and intimate, passionate and playful, epic and yet truthful and heartfelt.
The album has a vast and expansive feel : gracefully weaving its way through rock-solid riffs and potent grooves, there are moments of intense power, heart-stopping gravity, and delicate beauty. This is the sound and dynamic of Panic Room... brought to a new level.
Fizzing with the unique style-play and musical freedom that Panic Room are famous for, and which has seen them transcend any genre or limitation, the album also unveils a distinct and deliciously dark sound all of its own... the sound of 'S K I N'.
A stunning collection of songs, all telling a story of their own, the album has a definite feel and continuity at the same time; a distinct mood of its own.
'S K I N' is... beguiling, hypnotic, dark...
sensual, emotional, and raw...
beautiful, reflective, and true.
The right album title was vital, and the band all agreed that this choice was perfect to reflect all of the key elements in the music they had created - the intimacy and rawness, the power, and the connection between us all.
It also picks up on the album's title track,
the breathtaking 'Skin'.
'S K I N' S T R I N G S
For the first time ever, Panic Room have written full original string arrangements for this album, and these orchestral layers were recorded and brought to life by the sublime talents of the Larkin String Quartet.
The gorgeous arrangements, both fresh and timeless, feature on many songs throughout the album, and have the effect of beautifully gilding
this dark lily.
'S K I N' was recorded by Tim Hamill at Sonic One Studios in South Wales - the band's sound engineer and studio of choice - and mastered by Jon Astley at Close To The Edge (Twickenham, England).
The band deeply respect and trust these expert engineers, both masters in their field, and are very proud to have their inspirational work on the new album. Both play a key part in creating this new sonic tapestry with the band, and really become one with the music.

The striking front cover artwork (pictured above)
is by the Portugese artist / photographer
Liliana Sanchez, whose image perfectly suited the music and theme of 'S K I N', and the band discovered her work while recording the album.

The band would like to say a huge 'Thank You' to all those who have helped and supported them in their many months of hard work and devotion leading up to this moment.... the creation and birth of
'S K I N'.
