Skid Row has entered Open Sky Studio, the Atlanta, Georgia-based facility owned and operated by producer/drummer Mike Froedge (Dreaded Marco, Black Label Society, Doubledrive, Speed X), to resume recording its new CD, "United World Rebellion - Chapter 1", due later in the year, Blabbermouth reports.
Several video clips and photos from the sessions, some of which took place at Bonehead Studio in Atlanta, can be seen on the band's Facebook page.
In support of the new CD, Skid Row will embark on a U.K. headlining tour in April. The band's guitarist, Dave "Snake" Sabo, said, "The U.K. has been so loyal to us from the beginning. It's been far too long since we've been there. We're all very excited about going back and about the other great bands on the bill. We promise that these will be some of the best shows of our career."
The band's bassist Rachel Bolan previously told Times-Standard.Com about Skid Row's forthcoming sixth LP, "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's last album "Revolutions Per Minute", was released on October 24, 2006 via SPV Records.
The band 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.
