Oh Slash fans it has been a WHILE hasn’t it? Worry no more: the legendary …
Multi-platinum U.S rockers, SKID ROW have just announced that they’ll be embarking on an Australian tour this coming October before hitting up New Zealand shores.
Aussie fans will be privy to former Drangonforce star, ZP Theart up front for the first time alongside guitarists Snake Sabo and Scotti Hill, as well as bassists Rachel Bolan and drummer Rob Hammersmith.
Starting way back in 1986 in New Jersey, Skid Row were armed with typical punk and metal demeanour, which lead them to achieve unquestionable success, racking up numerous top ten singles, both Gold and Multi-platinum selling albums, and a number one spot on the Billboard Album Charts.
Conquering the world several times over, lead guitarist Snake Sabo says:
“I will always be that 16-year-old kid in front of the mirror, pretending to be Ace Frehley or Michael Schenker. It’s still about writing a great song with your friends, praying it connects with someone. That has never left me. That willfulness will always exist, and there’s so much left to say!”
In the midst of recording the final, new installment of United World Rebellion, Skid Row drummer, Rob Hammersmith says of the new energy:
“That sound and energy is what resonates with people and knocks them on their ass! We have a lot of great ideas to work with, so we’re all really excited about this new music.”
ZP Theart continues, saying he is excited about the energy surrounding the new music and upcoming tour:
“I’ve been a mad fan of this band since I was a teenager, and to now be a member of Skid Row, is beyond any sense of my imagination!”
The first show will be held at Brisbane’s Easton Hills’ Hotel on Thursday, October 18th.
