HALESTORM members Lzzy Hale, Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith, along with Brad Whitford (AEROSMITH), Rachel Bolan (SKID ROW) and Jimmy Chalfant (KIX) are among the musicians who joined THE EAST SIDE GAMBLERS on stage this past Saturday night (January 6) at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville, Tennessee at the Chemokaze VI charity event. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
HALESTORM last year entered the Dark Horse Recording studios just outside Nashville to begin recording its fourth album for a 2018 release. Helming the sessions is Nick Raskulinecz, an acclaimed producer who has previously worked with RUSH, KORN, ALICE IN CHAINS and DEFTONES, in addition to having produced HALESTORM‘s third covers EP, “ReAniMate 3.0: The CoVeRs eP”, which came out in January 2017.
SKID ROW is reportedly working on the final installment of its “United World Rebellion” trilogy of EPs. The follow-up to 2014’s “Rise Of The Damnation Army – United World Rebellion: Chapter Two” and 2013’s “United World Rebellion: Chapter One” will mark the band’s first release with the South African-born, British-based vocalist ZP Theart (DRAGONFORCE, TANK, I AM I), who officially joined SKID ROW in January 2017.
