SKID ROW To Release New Album Later This Year
SKID ROW has inked a worldwide deal with Australia's Golden Robot Records. The the final chapter of the band's "United World Rebellion" trilogy will be released later this year. The disc was recorded at a Nashville, Tennessee studio with producer Michael Wagener, who also helmed the group's 1989 self-titled debut and 1991's "Slave To The Grind".
The album will mark SKID ROW's first release with South African-born, British-based vocalist ZP Theart (DRAGONFORCE, TANK, I AM I), who joined the band in 2016 following the departure of Tony Harnell (TNT, STARBREAKER).
"We are beyond excited to announce that we have signed with Golden Robot Records," says SKID ROW bassist Rachel Bolan. "The label is the perfect balance between old-school way of thinking with digital age sensibilities. We can think of no better company to release our third chapter of 'United World Rebellion' and our first record with ZP."
Adds Mark Alexander-Erber, Golden Robot Entertainment Group founder and president: "We are honored to welcome SKID ROW to the Golden Robot Records family they have always remained true to their fans with authenticity and passion. We are more than excited to be part of their next chapter and journey with a brand new album."
SKID ROW's new album will feature collaborations with several outside songwriters, including Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) and Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger of HALESTORM, a group that covered the title track of "Slave To The Grind" on its "ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP" in 2011. SKID ROW also worked with songwriter-for-hire Marti Frederiksen, who has previously collaborated with AEROSMITH, DEF LEPPARD, Jonny Lang and Sheryl Crow.
