“‘The Gang’s All Here’, for me, represents the brotherhood of this band. And with the addition of Erik [Grönwall], our bond is more solid than ever. Our fans have always been part of the family, so when it was time to shoot a video, we handed the camera work over to them. After all, they have the best perspective to capture the excitement of a Skid Row show.”

Grönwall added:

“I’m so fucking psyched to finally release this video! This video is by the fans, for the fans. A big shout out to all the fans who made this video happen. Thank you!”

Skid Row’s Scotti Hill Misses Ashland, KY Show After Testing Positive For COVID-19

Skid Row’s Scotti Hill has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the guitarist was unable to make the band’s April 30 show in Ashland, KY. Singer Erik Grönwall told the audience the following:

“Unfortunately, Scotti got COVID and he’s home and resting. And luckily, we have the best and coolest fucking crew in the world. So this guy right here, that guy is usually a guitar tech but he’s an awesome fucking guitar player. And this guy learned all the songs in less than a day. Give it up for Casey, everybody, c’mon. What a fucking hero.”

Skid Row Planning To Release New Album In September

Skid Row are tentatively planning to release their new album on September 16. New music from the record is also expected to arrive next month.

Guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo told The Music Universe the following:

“It looks like, as it stands now, September 16th. But we’ll be coming out with new music, it looks like, around the second [or] third week of March.”

He also added the following about the idea of releasing multiple singles over time:

“Well, I think that the way that we’re doing it now we haven’t done before. I think we’re at a stage in our careers and our lives where we’re just really open to other viewpoints. Okay, so we’re working with a new label. They obviously know what works for them better than we know what works for them. And we also know what works for us. And this whole process has been about kind of getting rid of old ways of thinking and doing things and being wide open to what exists in the current market and what exists in the current state of music. And so we wanna embrace those ideas. And not everything is gonna work for the way we work, but we’re definitely much more open [to it] in every facet — from the creation of music to the releasing of the music.

We love the ritual of the process of opening vinyl or the process of getting into a CD. Rachel [Bolan, SKID ROW bassist] and I were just talking about this last night. It’s still a big part of our love of music, that process of the ritual, like I said — of having that physical product in your hand and putting it on the turntable or the CD player. And I understand that 80 percent of music is streamed these days, and that makes sense, and I embrace that as well. I mean, that’s how I listen to a lot of music; that’s how I discover a lot of music, be it on Spotify or YouTube or Amazon. And it’s great. I’m not one of those guys that condemns those platforms at all. I think it’s overcrowded and it’s not as easy to discover music, maybe, as it used to be. I still harken back to the days of underground tape trading, which was great, and underground fanzines and things like that, and that was a great way to discover music. But it’s different now, and I welcome it. I don’t lament the past — I embrace the now — and I also still know what I love as a guy who just loves music. And they can all work — they’re not exclusive of one another; it can all work together.”

Skid Row’s Rachel Bolan Undergoes Appendectomy

Skid Row’s Rachel Bolan has revealed that he recently underwent an appendectomy. As a result, the bassist was forced to miss the band’s January 29 show at the Showroom at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ.

Bolan said the following:

“Hey everyone. I’ve been getting a lot of DMs asking why I wasn’t playing at our recent show of the Live To Rock Tour in Scottsdale, AZ. Welp… last Monday evening I was rushed to the ER with appendicitis and had an appendectomy the next afternoon. Long story short, the surgeon (and a couple other doctors) said that I could under no circumstances play the show or fly. They were concerned about the 3 incisions as well as the possibility of blood clots on an airplane.

Everyone at St. Thomas midtown were incredible. @ascensionsaintthomas is the goods. I was in good hands from start to finish. And thankfully @leila_1plus was with me the whole time.

I feel incredible and I’m ready to get back at it.

I honestly don’t know what hurt worse, the appendicitis or missing a show.

Thanks to Robbie Crane for holding down the bottom end in my absence.

As you can see Lovey hasn’t left my side since I’ve been home. #heal #heal #rockandroll”

Skid Row Team Up With Dead Sled Coffee For “Slave To The Grind” Blend

Skid Row have joined forces with Dead Sled Coffee to create a special “Slave To The Grind” blend. Pre-orders for the coffee can be found HERE.

Here’s a description of the coffee:

“The Officially Licensed Skid Row Slave to the Grind coffee is a perfect blend of beans from both Costa Rica and Brazil. The blend of high-quality coffee is a rich and bold French roast that creates a smooth sipping coffee without the bitter aftertaste.”

Diana Whittles, founder, co-owner, and CEO at Dead Sled Coffee commented:

“Here at Dead Sled Coffee, we’re known for creating distinguished coffee for the exceptional and unconventional. This time around we are blending our passion for music into our new coffee line, ‘Slave To The Grind’, a partnership with rock legends SKID ROW.

The first time I heard Skid Row, I thought, ‘These guys are amazing.’ Each song felt like a fist-in-the-air rock and roll battle cry. They quickly became part of my heavy rotation, and with every mixtape, I made there were at least two or three of their songs that got rewound and listened to multiple times in a row.

It is my honor and pleasure to welcome the powerhouse that is Skid Row to the Dead Sled Coffee family. I am excited to be working with a band that I have so much love and respect for, and who set the soundtrack to a huge portion of my teen years. My inner 15-year-old is completely freaking out.”
