Skid Row made the surprising announcement last week that their singer, Erik Gronwall, would be exiting the band to focus on his health. Gronwall joined Skid Row in 2022, and the band released a critically-acclaimed album, “The Gangs All Here.”

Gronwall, however, ran into some health issues while on tour with the group. He previously received a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia about three years ago. The illness took a toll on Gronwall’s immune system, and it makes it more difficult for the singer to recover from being sick.

“Yes, I have decided to leave Skid Row,” Gronwall said in a social media post. “The main reason being that it’s proved difficult to prioritize my health and full recovery as the lead singer of the band. In 2021 I was undergoing treatment against leukemia and that gave me a superpower called perspective. I decided to use that perspective and write down the values I wanted to live by for the rest of my life. On top of that list it says ‘health first.’”

Skid Row’s former singer, Sebastian Bach, has been making the rounds to promote his upcoming solo album, “Child Within The Man.” Bach’s first solo album in a decade drops on May 10. 

Speaking to Metal Hammer, Bach admitted that he thinks the band owes it to their fans to reunite. “For me, doing three albums with Skid Row, I was just getting started,” he said. “I didn’t think it would be over and done with so quick.”

Bach was pressed on if the band would ever be able to work out their differences. The band tried to reunite in 2016 before things fell apart. 

“I can definitely see that happening considering they play the same songs I play,” he said. “When I get a substantial royalty check for an album I did with musicians that I haven’t been in the same room with since 1996, I feel like a piece of sh*t. Because we should be giving something back to the fans that have made this great life possible.”
