Skid Row quash Bach reunion rumours

Skid Row have quashed any faint hopes of a rumoured reunion with former frontman Sebastian Bach by confirmed ZP Threart as their full-time vocalist.

The former Dragonforce frontman was drafted in to front Skid Row two years ago following the 2015 split with Tony Harnell.

Skid Row then revealed plans to record with Threat before Christmas with the singer also hitting the road as a touring member of the band.

But now the band have confirmed Threart's position as a full-time member of Skid Row with a statement on social media.

The band say in a statement: “It's official! After touring with the band for the past year, ZP Theart has been named the new lead singer for Skid Row.

“The announcement originally came on stage during a performance in Nova Scotia to an overwhelming response. That was their first show of 2017.

“The band is now busy writing songs for the final instalment of their United World Rebellion trilogy and plans to hit the road in April.”

The news comes hot on the heels of claims from Bach that his manager Rick Sales was in discussions about a proposed classic Skid Row reunion.
