Skid Row is left without a vocalist, Lzzy Hale joins the band

The singer Erik Grönwall who arrived at Skid Row in 2022 has decided to leave the band for health reasons and who will arrive to take his place, at least in the next shows, will be the vocalist of Halestorm, Lzzy Hale.

“Today, Skid Row and Erik Grönwall jointly announce that Erik will step down as Skid Row's vocalist. Our old friend Lzzy Hale of Halestorm will be taking over singing duties for the next four concerts. "Erik has decided that travel and the rigors of touring are not conducive to his overall health or recovery, and wants to focus on a lifestyle that is best suited for his well-being, his recovery, and that of his family," reads a statement from the band.

For his part, Erik says: “I had the opportunity to join this incredible band 6 months after my leukemia treatment. And a month later I was on a world tour with Skid Row. Wow! It was a dream come true. However, it was difficult to travel the world with a compromised immune system, as a result of my bone marrow transplant.

I respect and understand that Skid Row is a band that tours, but since I cannot prioritize my health while being in the band, I have decided that it is best for me to step aside. I love Skid Row, I have nothing but respect for the band and its members, but I love and respect my health more. I'm getting stronger and healthier every day, but after consulting my doctor I need to give myself more time to recover, which I can't do as the lead singer of Skid Row. That is why I have made the difficult decision to move forward.”
