SKID ROW recently entered the studio to begin recording the final installment of its “United World Rebellion” trilogy of EPs, to be released later in the year. The follow-up to 2014’s “Rise Of The Damnation Army – United World Rebellion: Chapter Two” and 2013’s “United World Rebellion: Chapter One” will mark the band’s first release with the South African-born, British-based vocalist ZP Theart (DRAGONFORCE, TANK, I AM I), who joined SKID ROW in December 2015.
Despite having played sporadic shows with SKID ROW for a year, Theart wasn’t officially announced as the band’s new frontman until this past January.
Theart said in a statement: “[SKID ROW‘s] music was the soundtrack to the largest part of my younger years and many a crazy adventure. Now I get the chance to re-live all of them for a hour and a half every night! I am beyond honored to be given this opportunity. Think I’m a bit jealous of my actual self.”
Theart‘s involvement with SKID ROW was exclusively reported by BLABBERMOUTH.NET on December 31, 2015. He stepped into the group following the departure of Tony Harnell, the TNT frontman who joined SKID ROW in April 2015 as the replacement for Johnny Solinger, the band’s singer for fifteen years.
SKID ROW guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo told News-Press.com that Theart has been doing a great job on the road. “He’s come in,” the guitarist said, “and he’s a really great source of positive energy. He knew all of our songs coming in, and he knew them well. He started singing the crap out of all of them, and we were all very impressed.”
