Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his official web site:
"I am totally excited to announce the Evolution Festival, which happens this July 16 in Toscolano Maderno, Italy!! This will be the first outdoor festival I have ever played in my life in Italy, which has ALWAYS been one of my favorite countries in the world to play! The Italian audiences are so passionate about rock 'n' roll (and life in general, come to think of it!) and each and every time I have been fortunate enough to play in this beautiful country, it ends up as a memory I will never forget. I am a huge fan of the ENTOMBED album 'Wolverine Blues' and another band I am freaking out about playing with is LORDI — this band is the wildest looking bunch of freaks ever (think KISS meets some haunted house amusement park ride run by Rob Zombie) so I am truly looking forward to this gig. C'ya soon, ITALY!!!!!!!!!
"The band (Metal Mike Chlasciak - guitars; Bobby Jarzombek - drums; Steve DiGiorgio - bass; Johnny Chromatic - guitars & backing vocals) are truly excited about all the festivals this summer. The fact that we are co-headlining Evolution is really a testament to the new band & the simple fact that this lineup is the most musically incredible team I have ever had the pleasure to destroy a stage with."
Other bands scheduled to appear at the Evolution Festival are NIGHTWISH, ENTOMBED, LORDI, ORPHANED LAND, DARK LUNACY, K-AGAIN, PANIC DHH and THE VISION BLEAK.
