Skid Row has revealed that they will be hitting the road next month to launch short tour with Black Star Riders before they embark on a headlining tour ahead of the release of their new EP.
The dates with Black Star Riders are set to kick off on May 8th at the Rialto Theatre in Tempe, Az and the short run of dates will conclude on May 16th in San Juan Capistrano, CA at the Coach House.
The next day, May 17th, Skid Row will be launching their headline tour at The Whisky in Los Angeles and that trek is scheduled to conclude on July 25th at Tubby's in Duncannon, PA.
Bassist Rachel Bolan had this to say about the band's decision to record a series of EPs instead of a full length studio album, "The idea really appealed to me. Especially with the constantly changing musical climate. I like the idea of a steady flow of new music, as opposed to releasing a full-length album then riding it for the next two years."
Frontman Johnny Solinger adds, "The third time in the studio as the voice of Skid Row was the proverbial charm, and the proof is in the tracks. United World Rebellion — Part 2 is the most meaningful work I've done with the band. It's definitely the most I've been challenged, vocally."
