New York, NY - After 14 years of touring and 4 releases, SKID ROW has released singer Johnny Solinger.
Founding member Snake Sabo said, “We had a lot of great times together and created a lot of great music. We wish him nothing but the best.”
“Sometimes things just end. People go in different directions and grow apart and you have to make a decision. He will always be our brother” adds co-founder Rachel Bolan.
The vacancy for a new front man has been filled by powerhouse vocalist Tony Harnell. This news comes hot of the heels of his departure from Norway based band, TNT. “Tony’s experience, power and undeniable range made our decision an easy one” commented guitarist Scotti Hill. Drummer Rob Hammersmith added, “I believe this will be a great year for SKID ROW. I’m looking forward for things to come.”
When asked about joining forces with SKID ROW Harnell said, "I'm so excited and honored to be a part of such a great band with an amazing legacy and legions of faithful fans! The guys and I have known each other for many years and this is such a natural fit. I look forward to getting out there and playing live together and being a part of making new music and creating our future together. It's time to rock!"
The band will head into the studio to record the third chapter of the United World Rebellion trilogy this summer. They will also hit the road for another world tour in support.
Hey everyone, Greetings from Prague in the Czech Republic.
Tonight is the last show of 5 in a row and everyone could really use a day off.
The drives have been long and the roads have been rough but the shows have more than made up for it.
This European tour has really been amazing for us so far. Last night in Warsaw, Poland we were sitting in the dressing room and listening to the people outside, standing in line waiting to get into the show, singing old Iron Maiden and Judas Priest songs at the top of their lungs!! It put all of us in such a great mood. There is nothing like the pure force of hard rock and heavy metal and the people who live it day in and day out!! It reminded us of when we were kids and we’d be going to a show at Madison Square Garden, the Philadelphia Spectrum or the Palladium in NYC to see Maiden or Priest or Kiss, etc..Read more ...
Greetings from Stockholm, Sweden.
Our apologies for not writing sooner but it’s been a bit difficult between the travel and randomness of wi-fi. Thursday night we left Tilburg in the Netherlands for a 21-hour bus drive that got us here last night. Thank God we all get along!
Tonight is show 7 of the Saxon tour. This is old school metal at it’s best. We are playing to a different crowd than we usually play to and it’s pretty awesome!Read more ...
