SKYCLAD in 2006 issued an EP, entitled "Jig-a-Jig". The disc featured a new recording of the instrumental track "Jig-a-Jig", along with the songs "The Roman Wall Blues", "They Think It's All Over - Well Is It Now?" and "Mr Malaprope" from the "A Semblance Of Normality" sessions.

SKYCLAD's most recent album, "A Semblance Of Normality", was released in 2004 through Demolition/Dreamcatcher Records. The CD was mixed and mastered at the Damage Inc. Studio in Italy by Dario Mollo, who has previously worked with ANATHEMA, CRADLE OF FILTH, TONY MARTIN and GLENN HUGHES, among others.

SKYCLAD played its first-ever gig in Russia on October 13 at the Oktobierfest in Moscow (along with TANKARD and BEERMEN GAME). Fan-filmed video footage from the show can be viewed below.
