Hot on the heels of their triumphant appearance at this year’s Download Festival, SKID ROW will return to the UK in October. This will be the band’s 4th trip to the UK in the last 18 months, so the band have chosen to visit markets they have missed on the past runs and that most bands skip completely. Places like Hull, Stourbridge and Buckley will all get a full volume blast of the United World Rebellion tour that has visited over 30 countries in the last year and a half. The band will also do a special intimate show at London’s legendary Underworld on Oct 28th which promises to be a hot ticket to get. Support for the tour will be SISTER and THE LAST VEGAS.

SKID ROW–Johnny Solinger (vocals), Scotti Hill (guitar), Rachel Bolan (bass), Snake Sabo (guitar) and Rob Hammersmith (drums)—will release their highly anticipated new seven-song EP, RISE OF THE DAMNATION ARMY – UNITED WORLD REBELLION: CHAPTER TWO, on August 06th. The EP marks the 2nd in a series of 3 highlighting the band’s new music.

“The idea really appealed to me,” says Bolan, “especially with the constantly changing musical climate. I like the idea of a steady flow of new music, as opposed to releasing a full-length album then riding it for the next two years.”

That guerrilla burst of recording a concise series of EP’s fostered a focused intensity that was liberating, says Snake. “The pressure seemed to be lifted. That immediately set me at ease and it became really exciting.”

Exciting and potent, prompting Solinger to exert the full range of his ability. “The third time in the studio as the voice of SKID ROW was the proverbial charm, and the proof is in the tracks. RISE OF THE DAMNATION ARMY – UNITED WORLD REBELLION: CHAPTER TWO is the most meaningful work I’ve done with the band. It’s definitely the most I’ve been challenged, vocally.”

That sound is rambunctious exuberance. They got older, but SKID ROW never really grew up. RISE OF THE DAMNATION ARMY – UNITED WORLD REBELLION: CHAPTER TWO is still the youth gone wild, their musical spark still burning gasoline.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
