Skid Row have signed with Megaforce Records. The band’s new E.P., ‘United World Rebellion – Chapter One’, will be released in North America on April 16th, with an international release date to be announced shortly. Skid Row guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo said, “We’ve known the Megaforce family and their various incarnations since 1982. Their history and legacy speaks for itself. We always thought that at some point we would work together and this turned out to be the perfect time and vehicle for us to finally do it. They have a sincere belief in what we’re doing and what our vision is which is really rare today. Needless to say, this is a very exciting time for us!”
United World Rebellion – Chapter One is the first of three E.P.’s that will be made available over the next 12-18 months.
Bassist Rachel Bolan explains, “We wanted to do something different. Living in an age of information overload, it seemed like the perfect time to try something new. We came up with the idea to release three consecutive EPs over the course of the next year or so. This way we have new music out there on a consistent basis. And who better to do that with than Megaforce? They practically invented the EP! United World Rebellion – Chapter One ROCKS!”
To coincide with the release, the band (Sabo, Bolan, vocalist Johnny Solinger, guitarist Scotti Hill and drummer Rob Hammersmith) will embark on a world tour beginning April 4th in Ipswitch, England. This will carry them through the UK along with stops in the Czech Republic, Sweden, Mexico and Korea just to name a few. In the coming months this will be followed by a full-on North American tour.
