‘RISE OF THE DAMNATION ARMY - UNITED WORLD REBELLION: CHAPTER TWO’ EP TO BE RELEASED AUGUST 6th
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.
