SKID ROW bassist Rachel Bolan tells Times-Standard.com that he and guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo have been writing some music and gearing up to hit the studio again for the band's 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," Bolan said. "We're looking forward to it." SKID ROW last year parted ways with drummer Dave Gara and has 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.
SKID ROW's latest album, "Revolutions Per Minute", was released on October 24, 2006 via SPV Records. The follow-up to 2003's "ThickSkin" was recorded at WireWorld studio in Nashville, Tennessee with Michael Wagener, who previously worked with the band on their two most commercially successful albums to date, "Skid Row" (1989) and "Slave to the Grind" (1991).
