Scene News: Skid Row full Australian tour this October

Multi-platinum selling band SKID ROW will embark on a full Australian tour
this October whilst also hitting Auckland New Zealand. It will be the first
time Australian fans get to see former Dragonforce singer ZP Theart up front
and he will be joined by guitarists Snake Sabo & Scotti Hill, bassist Rachel
Bolan and drummer Rob Hammersmith!

Skid Row started in 1986 when a group of New Jersey kids, armed with their
punk and metal attitude, and a collection of riff-heavy, high-octane songs,
set out to conquer the world, one concert at a time. This determined and
focused approach proved to be an unquestionable success, as the group went
on to clock up numerous Top Ten singles, Gold and multi-Platinum selling
albums and a Number 1 on the Billboard album chart. In other words, the
world was theirs.

They might have conquered the world several times over, but guitarist Snake
Sabo admits the success hasn’t changed him or the band, and Skid Row are
focused on making more earth shattering music. He 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!”

Now, SKID ROW is gearing up to record the final instalment of the United
World Rebellion trilogy. Recording new songs means capturing the signature
SKID ROW energy for drummer Rob Hammersmith. “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.”

As the energy for the new album and tour is reaching fever pitch, enter ZP
Theart. “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 Fever Pitch is sure to be reached as SKID ROW unleash all that energy
and hit Australia and NZ this October!
