Skid Row Stream ‘United World Rebellion’ Bonus Tracks Online
July 15, 2013
On April 16th Skid Row released ‘United World Rebellion – Chapter One’, the first in a series of planned EPs from the hard rock band. After the album’s North American release through Megaforce Records, the EP was reissued overseas via UDR Music with two bonus tracks — covers of Judas Priest’s “United” and EZO’s “Fire Fire”. Due to the bonus tracks being difficult to obtain for North American fans, the band are streaming them on their ReverbNation page at www.reverbnation.com/skidrow.
Said Skid Row vocalist Johnny Solinger, “Many of my friends have not heard or can’t find the bonus tracks for UWR:1, as they are only available outside of North America. I know it takes some effort to get your hands on an import recording. We recently loaded them up for streaming on our Reverbnation’s page — grab some headphones and enjoy.”
Regarding the band’s signing with Megaforce Records guitarist Snake Sabo stated, “We’ve known the Megaforce family and their various incarnations since 1982. Their history and legacy speaks for itself. We always thought, that at some point, we would work together and this turned out to be the perfect time and vehicle for us to finally do it. They have a sincere belief in what we’re doing and what our vision is which is really rare today. Needless to say, this is a very exciting time for us!”
‘United World Rebellion – Chapter One’ is the first new release from Skid Row since ‘Revolutions Per Minute’ in 2006. This marks a departure for the band, as they will be releasing ‘United World Rebellion – Chapter One’ plus two more EP’s over the next 12-18 months as opposed to one full-length collection of songs.
Bassist Rachel Bolan explained, “We wanted to do something different. Living in an age of information overload it seemed like the perfect time to try something new. We came up with the idea to release three consecutive EP’s over the course of the next year or so. This way we have new music out there on a consistent basis. And who better to do that with than Megaforce? They practically invented the EP! United World Rebellion – Chapter One ROCKS!”
