Skid Row have announced that they have parted ways with vocalist Johnny Solinger and hired former TNT frontman Tony Harnell to replace him.

Solinger has left Skid Row to pursue a solo career after 14 years, 2 studio albums and 2 EPs with the band.

“We had a lot of great times together and created a lot of great music. We wish him nothing but the best,” said Skid Row founding guitarist Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo.

Speaking of his hiring Tony Harnell said: “I’m so excited and honoured to be a part of such a great band with an amazing legacy and legions of faithful fans. The guys and I have known each other for many years and this is such a natural fit. I look forward to getting out there and playing live together and being a part of making new music and creating our future together. It’s time to rock.”

Skid Row also confirmed that they didn’t consider approaching former frontman Sebastian Bach after they had parted ways with Solinger, with Sabo telling Eddie Trunk Live: “It wasn’t something that we entertained. It’s just something that we didn’t even think about. Making a change for us was about getting somebody new.”

Skid Row are due to record the third of their United World Rebellion EPs later this year.
