SKID ROW - Solinger Departs, TONY HARNELL Announced As New Voice

Tuesday, April 7, 2015
SKID ROW has moved quickly to replace vocalist JOHNNY SOLINGER, who announced his departure from the band earlier today. To counter those innevitable "Sebastian Bach reunion" headlines, the band was quick to surprise everyone with the announcement that former TNT legend TONY HARNELL was to join the band.
Apparently the guys have recorded one song already and will work on the third and final part of their EP trilogy before embarking on an extensive tour.
Here's a round up of what everyone has had to say today:
Official Press Release:
New York, NY - After 14 years of touring and 4 releases, SKID ROW and singer Johnny Solinger have parted ways.
Founding member Snake Sabo said, “We had a lot of great times together and created a lot of great music. We wish him nothing but the best.”
“Sometimes things just end. People go in different directions and grow apart and you have to make a decision. He will always be our brother”
adds co-founder Rachel Bolan.

The vacancy for front man has been filled by powerhouse vocalist Tony Harnell. This news comes hot of the heels of his departure from Oslo based band, TNT.“Tony’s experience, power and undeniable range made our decision an easy one” commented guitarist Scotti Hill. Drummer Rob Hammersmith added, “I believe this will be a great year for SKID ROW. I’m looking forward for things to come.”

​When asked about joining forces with SKID ROW Harnell said, "I'm so excited and honored to be a part of such a great band with an amazing legacy and legions of faithful fans! The guys and I have known each other for many years and this is such a natural fit. I look forward to getting out there and playing live together and being a part of making new music and creating our future. It's time to rock!"

The band will head into the studio to record the third chapter of the United World Rebellion trilogy in early summer. They will also hit the road for another world tour in support.
