Skid Row Announce Album with New Frontman Erik Grönwall, Release First Single
One day after we reported on hair metallers Skid Row announcing their new frontman Erik Grönwall, the band have announced their first full-length album with the singer.
The first single is the title track, and while it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it’s definitely a good one for Grönwall to get started on. It’s got a big chorus, and a lot of fun lyrics about partyin’ with the boyzzz and all that manic stuff you’d put on a sleeveless Skid Row shirt for. You don’t have your new frontman launch his tenure in a band with some challenging concept record nonsense, you let him live his dream, and you can hear Grönwall doing just that in the track.
Say guitarist Snake Sabo and bassist Rachel Bolan:
“We are beyond excited to release this record. It has been a long time in the making and a lot of hard work has been put into it by the band and our producer Nick Raskulinecz. And the addition of Erik has lifted the songs to new heights. Add all this to the fact that we start our world tour in Las Vegas with the Scorpions residency this Saturday at Zappos Theater makes it easy to say that Skid Row is going to have a great year.”
