2022 is the start of a new era for SKID ROW with new singer Erik Grönwall, a new single from their forthcoming album and a world tour.
Silverback Touring are pleased to announce that SKID ROW will be returning to Australia for the first time since 2018. The band has enjoyed a three-decade strong relationship with Aussie fans with their shows always receiving rave reviews and leaving fans gasping for more.
What is most exciting for fans is the band has a new album recorded and gearing for a late 2022 release led by the brand-new single, “The Gang’s All Here”, which has all the tell-tale signs of the classic SKID ROW sound.
Fans received their first glimpse of Grönwall in Las Vegas on 26 March as the band took up a residency in support of SCORPIONS and gauging from the live clips and online commentary surrounding the performance, the band, made up of Rachel Bolan, Dave “Snake” Sabo, Scotti Hill and Rob Hammersmith have a renewed vigour and energy with classic era SKID ROW sounding better than it ever has.
Erik Grönwall was born into the music world winning Sweden’s Idol in 2009. Following his Idol commitments he played the role of Simon Zealots on the NBC’s live TV broadcast of Jesus Christ Superstar alongside Alice Cooper, joined Swedish band H.E.A.T. before his successful battle against leukaemia. Grönwall is the perfect match to SKID ROW.
RECKLESS LOVE join the tour armed with a brand-new album, Turborider. The band played a few shows in Australia in 2020 on the eve of the pandemic world shutdown collecting a swarm of new fans along the way.
Rounding out the line-up are Australian hard rock band, WICKED SMILE, who in a short period of time have established themselves as one of Australia’s leading hard rock acts on the back of their dynamic live shows and brilliant debut album Wait for the Night. WICKED SMILE is fronted by legendary Danny Cecati (PEGAZUS and EYEFEAR) with axeman Stevie Janevski (BLACK MAJESTY, CYCLONE TRACY).
