Panic Room will release their latest studio album, Skin, through Esoteric/Antenna on 25th June 2012…
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists.
“SKIN” is the latest album from PANIC ROOM (featuring the lovely voice of Anne Marie Helder-Classic Rock Progs female vocalist of the year 2010 and 2011) and is one of the most eagerly anticipated albums by a band on the new wave of British Progressive Rock groups.

The album, the band’s third, is arguably the finest yet by ANNE MARIE HELDER (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards, Flute), JONATHAN EDWARDS (Keyboards), PAUL DAVIES (Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals), YATIM HALIMI (Bass) and GAVIN GRIFFITHS (Drums).
“SKIN” 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.
Featuring 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 ‘SKIN’.
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.
‘SKIN’ is… beguiling, hypnotic, dark…sensual, emotional, and raw…beautiful, reflective, and true…
The album title reflects all of the key elements in the music PANIC ROOM has created – the intimacy, the rawness and the power that is “SKIN”.
