SKID ROW performed on the Rockklassiker Kryssning aboard the ship Silja Galaxy, which departed from Sweden on April 28 and returned the next day. Fan-filmed video footage of their appearance can be seen below.
SKID ROW‘s latest CD, “Revolutions Per Minute”, was released on October 24, 2006 via SPV Records.
When asked in a July 2011 interview with SCTimes.com if the band has been working on any new music, bassist Rachel Bolan replied, “Actually, we are. Snake and I are writing when we get a chance. We’ve got about eight songs right now and we want to write at least 10 more and pick from that. I live in Atlanta and he lives out in Hollywood, so it takes a little bit of planning. We do what we can through the mail, but we never really feel right about something until we sit down in the same room together and write. I doubt that it will be out this year, but hopefully 2012. I gotta tell you, just saying that, ‘in 2012’… When we recorded our first album in ’88, I never thought we’d still be making records in 2012. That’s pretty cool.”
Bolan previously told Times-Standard.com about SKID ROW‘s forthcoming sixth album, “I think the next record, as far as what Snake and I are writing, is going back to what people would expect from SKID ROW. We’re looking forward to it.”
SKID ROW in 2010 parted ways with drummer Dave Gara and replaced him with Atlanta native Rob Hammersmith.
Rob spent many years touring and recording with Atlanta-based rockers ROCKETS TO RUIN and has performed with GUNFIRE 76, the band featuring MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13.
